Driving Directions Syria

SYRIA is a country in southwest Asia which borders the Mediterranean Sea in the west. Much of the country consists of arid plateau lands and plains, which grade into the southeast desert.

There is a narrow, fer­tile coastal plain alongside the Mediterranean shore, but this soon gives way to a belt of hills running north to south, which rises to form the high­er Anti-Lebanon Mountains extending across the border with Lebanon.
