Description

Ra’s al ‘Ayn is a city tucked away in the north-east corner of Syria, sitting pretty close to the Turkish border. The city is known for its rich heritage, cultural diversity, and bustling bazaars. The locals mainly speak Kurdish, but if you’re lucky, you may come across someone who speaks Arabic or Turkish too.

The city has a neat mix of old and new, with ancient mosques standing shoulder-to-shoulder with modern buildings. The narrow streets and alleyways can be a little tricky to navigate, but it’s totally worth it when you stumble upon hidden gems, such as the traditional bakeries serving up piping hot bread straight from the oven.

If you’re looking for some fun shopping, you’ll definitely want to check out the souks. Here you’ll find a plethora of colorful spices, fabrics, and jewelry, as well as delicious street food offerings. But make sure you bring your bargaining skills, as haggling is a norm around here.

If you’re interested in history and architecture, you’ll definitely want to check out the ancient Citadel that dates back to the 13th century. It’s been partially restored and is a great place to snap some dreamy photos. You’ll also want to visit the Hasankeyf Bridge, an impressive structure that spans the river Tigris. It’s particularly stunning at sunset when the orange hues cast a gorgeous warm glow over the city.

Overall, Ra’s al ‘Ayn is a charming city with a lot to offer. The people are friendly, the food is delicious, and the sights are breathtaking. It’s definitely a city that you won’t regret exploring.
