"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah on Wednesday reviewed the Syrian government's new tourism video that simply shows drone footage of one beach.

"The only thing harder than being a civilian in Syria is being the minister of tourism in Syria," Noah said. "Here's a quick tip: if you want to encourage people to come to your country, maybe you should focus less on ads and more on not blowing people up."

Noah used Las Vegas as an example:

"They have a great tourism campaign," he explained. "But first they had to end the bloody civil war between Blue Man Group and Cirque du Soleil. They had to start somewhere."
