Fall in love with the Middle East for its untouched beauty, ancient history and surprisingly good beaches
The Middle East is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination for the more curious traveller. Granted, it has bred its fair share of scepticism, but what awaits, is an experience that will truly surprise you with its striking landscapes and ancient mysticism, not to mention a climate that rivals its more popular Mediterranean counterparts.
Unearth the ancient secrets of Christianity on a visit to the Holy Land. Israel offers a spiritual discovery, taking in Jerusalem, Bethlehem and the Dead Sea. You can then ponder your discoveries with a relaxing beach resort stay in cosmopolitan Tel Aviv.
Neighbouring Jordan offers a tour of historical gems and archaeological sites, from the hidden city of Petra – one of the seven wonders of the world, to Bethany – the baptismal site of Jesus Christ. Cool off with a dip in the Dead Sea, where you can float on this iconic salt-lake.
Oman is a growing destination on the tourist trail. It’s one of the safest Middle Eastern countries, with a friendly nation of people who welcome guests with sticky dates and cardamom coffee. Wander around the souk bazaars, taking in the smell of frankincense and enjoy fresh seafood as you marvel the stunning whitewashed architecture.
