Money & costs


There are ATMs all over Aleppo, so leave the travellers cheques at home – you’ll be hard-pressed to find a bank that will change them.

Commercial Bank of Syria(Sharia Yousef al-Azmeh; 8.30am-1.30pm Sat-Thu) It’s marked by a big sign in English but the entrance is hidden at the back of an arcade.

Exchange office (cnr Sharia al-Quwatli & Sharia Bab al-Faraj; 9am-7.30pm) Convenient but doesn’t accept travellers cheques.
