Syria has always been a crossroads. Kings, caliphs, crusaders and conquerors have all carved their way through here leaving crumbling reminders of past glories scattered across the countryside. Get under the skin of this historical heavyweight with Footprint's 1st edition Syria Handbook.

Since deciding that growing up and getting a proper job was highly overrated at the tender age of 18, New Zealander Jessica Lee has travelled extensively in Asia, Africa and Latin America. A small obsession with houmous and a large obsession with nomadic people led her to the Middle East in 2004 where she fell in love with the Arabic language and the incredible hospitality of the people. She has lived there full-time since 2007, working as a tour leader as well as a writer. When not on the overland trail between Cairo and Istanbul, she can usually be found among the fairy chimneys of central Anatolia where she is attempting to renovate a cave-house.


Brand new title in the series of guidebooks, featuring author recommendations and detailed listings on the best meze, local hangouts and where to sleep.

With its vast ruins spread out over desert sands and fairytale castles perched on hilltops Syria groans under a weight of monuments that few other countries can match. Thread your way deep into the souks where you´ll feel as if the clocks stopped a few centuries back, get lost in the Old City of Damascus or wander the labyrinth streets of Aleppo where the smell of spices scent the air.
