Bosra (Arabic: بصرى‎, also Busra ash-Sham) is an ancient city in southern Syria. It is a major archaeological site and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

There's a daily bus at 18:00 from Bosra to Damascus, costs only 100 SYP (July 2008).

Hitching In

If coming from Damascus, just take the highway south in direction Daraa. At the last crossing before the border, get out and hitchhike east towards Bosra. The trip is easy done and might last some two hours from Damas.
