The Port of Latakia is the main route in Syria for containers, though it also handles a large amount of metals, machinery, chemicals and food stuffs. Latakia has an extensive agricultural hinterland.
The Cote d'Azur Beach of Latakia is Syria's premier coastal resort, and activities undertaken there include water-skiing, jet-skiing, and windsurfing.
The Syrian cuisine is varied and rich, in view of the fertility of Syrian lands and the abundance of their crops which enable the cook to be a master and to diversify in his choice and talent in the preparation of fresh meals made of vegetables, legumes and meats.
