The Middle East is famous for conflict and religion – not coincidentally. Oil-rich Islamic states, with ancient medieval cities and sweltering deserts, sit cheek-by-jowl with Westernised, Jewish Israel. You can see modern beach resorts, Crusader castles, traditional Arabic souks, and visit some of the most important spiritual locations on the planet. The Middle East is popular with pilgrims of many religions. The secular beach resorts will be popular with everyone. Adventurers will relish visiting challenging destinations like Saudi Arabia. Wherever you go, try and pick up some local bargains; after all, this part of the world is famous as a centre for trade.

Middle East Highlights

What to Do in the Middle East

Pilgrims of all religions come to visit – to complete Hajj, or see any number of other places that are significant to at least three major religions. Any who is interested in history will be fascinated by this region – the Crusaders, Ottomans, Byzantines, Romans and many other civilisations have made their mark on these conflicted lands. If you’re more interested in shopping and cocktails, then check out Dubai and some of the Israeli cities, where having a good time is all part of the experience. Middle Eastern food is also delicious – try falafel, hummus, and local olives.

Middle-Eastern Holidays Guide

The Middle East may have a troublesome reputation, but the vast majority of it is open to travellers -use your common sense and keep up to date on news when travelling in the region, the same as anywhere else. There is year-round sunshine in many Middle Eastern locations, but remember it can always get cold at night. One of the hassles of travelling in the Middle East is that several countries will not allow travellers to pass if they have Israeli stamps in their passport; Israel enforces similar rules. Plan your route carefully.
