They can try any plan they want no one is going to that area for a few years max. How do you make a country that is sending its citizens around the world because of violence a tourist spot. There are at least 4 countries actively fighting in Syria. I will pass on this one.

About 250,000 dead over the last four years provides a great deal of material for such photographs. It is not clear if the #SummerInSyria hashtag was intended to promote tourism, exactly, but the Daily Mail notes that the Syrian economy has collapsed by more than half over the past four years, while the currency has lost 78% of its value.

No thanks, I think there are many other choices that come to mind when planning my vacation. Tourism board campaign extols beauty of Tartus in midst of civil war that has killed hundreds of thousands and destroyed major cities.

I have idea what made them even think about this at a time like this. No one was going there when it was peaceful why the hell would we want to see rubble and get shot at for it. lol

You can not ask tourist to stay in a place where the nationals do not want to be.

Although the Syrian government has been flailed by the international media, in part due to its recalcitrant press censorship and vigorous content bans, the Syrian people are actually known to be quite kind and friendly, and have a strong tradition regarding resplendent hospitality.

Right off the bat, that’s an obnoxious bit of hashtag overload in a single tweet. More importantly, Syria is not really the premiere summer vacation destination in the minds of most Internet users. True, a sizable number of people have been slipping over the Turkish border to get into Syria, but they are not packing picnic baskets and selfie sticks.
