Hama Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
For travelers visiting Hama the best place to start their tour is a climb of the citadel hill - the actual citadel is gone but the hill still provides great views over town and the river.
After that, head for the water weels in the river below. Known as norias these 30 meter high weels date back 2000 years!
Other attractions include the 18th-century House of Al Azim, and the el Hayat Mosque. There are also two old caravanserais you can visit. Ask for the funduq.
Daytrips can be made to Qalaat al Mudiq for an old fort, Asriyeh for Roman temples and Seijar for a nice old tonw with a castle.
