Airport to town + bus to Amman  (1 Answer)

Hi there :),

I have a question regarding the transportation in Damascus.

I will arrive to Damascus at night - 2.30 am (24th Dec). I would like to manage to take the bus to Amman which I understand should leave Damascus at around 7am.

Do you know:

i) How can I get from the airport to the bus station? I understand there should be some night buses right?
ii) What is the name of the bus station serving buses to Amman?
iii) Will I be able to get a seat without reservation?
iv) Are there more buses to Amman than the morning one?
v) Will the bus be in service on 24th of December?

Thanks a lot for tips!

Summer Furnished Apartment Rental  (2 Answers)

Hi Everyone,

I just arrived in Damascus and will be here until the end of August. I am looking to rent a furnished apartment for the next three months. I was hoping to pay under400--I'm a graduate student and don't have too much funds available. I will be working in Al-Mazzah region so preferably an area close-by or with easy access to that area.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I will be arriving in damascus on the 4th July. I intend to stay in the haramein hotel a few days whilst i sort out accomodation etc for the length of my visit (2 months and a bit) to study arabic at the university. Can anyone let me know of any rooms they may know is available for rent from early july till mid september? It will save me time from having to look for an apartment/room whilst im there.

A quick final question-i will be arriving at the airport at around 1030-pm which is rather late, so will have any problems getting to the hotel?

Kind regards
