Krak des Chevilliers

View Middle East - March 07 on krissy's travel map.

In our haste to leave the dodgy hotel we caught a taxi to the bus stop to try and catch a bus to Krak des Chevilliers but found that there were no ATM’s in town or any money exchanges at the bus depot. Once again we got harassed at the bus stop by haggling bus reps wanting our money.

We ended up being approached by a taxi driver that spoke English and wanted to take us to the castle. We managed to get his price down and he took us back into Homs to change some of our money.

We finally got to the castle and decided to get a guided tour. The castle is massive and would have to be the most impressive I have seen so far, as you will see from the photos. We found something new and beautiful every time we turned around.
