Prior to the Syrian Conflict, Travel Tales visited the famed city of Aleppo, Syria losing themselves in a labyrinth of bustling passageways and chatting with merchants and locals. They described their experience a ‘magical and memorable’ and lucky for us they have gathered up some of their travel videos to share with all of us.
So on behalf of Travel Tales, enjoy a excerpt of their time in Aleppo, once Syria’s largest and most populated city which sits in the north-western portion of the country close to Turkey’s southern boarder and one of the longest inhabited cities with some scholars claiming it dates back to the 6th millennium BC. While it’s history is long and vast we offer just a glimpse of life in the ancient metropolis with their video.
A Moment in Aleppo, Syria
Nowadays the city of Aleppo is no longer a tourist destination. Instead it has become a focal point in the ongoing regional conflict which have scarred the city. The images from this Travel Tales Video show a city bustling with commerce and tourism, merchants selling popcorn, kabobs, falafels, and much more, smiling locals singing, dancing and sharing, and a bright future for all its citizens. While the city may never be as it was, there remains hope that Aleppo will overcome the current turmoil and once again welcome tourism with open arms, regaining its economic strength and sharing its warm hospitality.
