I don't know much about it, although I would like to visit there. My paternal grandmother is supposedly buried there. She died in the 30's while there on an archeological dig. I doubt I'd actually find the grave, though. Sorry I don't know how to help... Reply to this

Hello everybody,
During a search in the net I came across with a quastion like yours. Read what it says:

"Qamishli, Syria is a place you absolutely MUST visit! Not sure what time of the year you were planning for your travels, but for such a small little town Qamishli has a lot to offer! I go to Qamishli every summer and am there usually from May until late August. It is VERY hot in Qamishli (Like most of Syria is in the summer) but it is still amazing. During the day the best thing--and really almost only thing to do-- is to visit one of the many pool resorts that Qamishli has. They are beautiful and have a great atmosphere to swim, layout, listen to music, and enjoy great food! These places are usually packed with tourists and locals and are open from about 11am til 5pm to the general public for a very small price (around 1$ entrance per person!). After 5pm these resorts close for clean up, and reopen later in the evening for dinner during the week, and for dinner and dancing on weekends, Saturday's and Sunday's. The local entertainment is to die for! Usually the beautiful talent of either Fadi Karat or Bashar Youhanon will have you dancing the night away until the early am, around 5, when these resorts close only to yet again clean, and reopen for the day! My favortie pool resorts are Ceaser Palace and Green Land. Also to do during the day, or really anytime in Qamishli, is eat at the many delicious restaurants there are! Miami restaurant and Havana restaurant are two very popular locations in Qamishli, both have a great vibe and are just in general a place for great food and a great time! They also serve the best Hookah in town! At night is when most people go out, the heat dies down and everyone is out strolling through the streets. Theres the famous Al Kuwatli street that takes you down a long boulivard with beautiful sights like the general park and various open restaurants and ice cream parlors. Street vendors sell things like corn, seeds and nuts, and popcorn along the street and you can people watch the many tourists and locals that are just enjoying the evening. Qamishli is just an amazing place. The people of Qamishli have a heart of gold, and theres just a nice vibe to it! Hope I helped! "

Enjoy your trip, from aleppoguide
