Ancient lands full of modern surprises

Depending upon interpretation, there are around 15 countries in the region including Israel, Lebanon, Jordan, Oman and the United Arab Emirates. Within this historic region there are grand cities of history - the facades in Jordan's Petra are a must see - and thriving metropolises of religious and cultural significance such as Jerusalem and Damascus to name a few.

In addition to the character-laden urban settlements, Middle Eastern landscapes harbour seas of dunes, palm-fringed oases and sociable seaside resorts. The bright waters of the Dead Sea will see you floating dreamily due to its high levels of salinity. Conversely, the Red Sea provides excellent opportunities for diving. If diving into the high life is more your style, don't miss Dubai – the flashiest of the United Arab Emirates. The UAE's low-key capital, Abu Dhabi, is worthy of exploration even if only for comparative reasons.
