Welcome to the Middle East, a fascinating land of culture and tradition, and the birthplace of entire civilisations. Often missed off the traveller radar, the Middle East boasts a plethora of wonders that cannot be found elsewhere.
Delve into ancient Persian culture in Iran, and start your trip by taking in the magnificent stops along the Silk Road.
Continue your journey back in time towards the archaeological site of Petra, or stop by the sacred Western Wall in Jerusalem.
Nature lovers, Oman's glistening desert beaches or Jordan's staggering Wadi Rum should be on your list. A dip in the legendary Dead Sea is also a must. The contrast between the Middle East's wilderness and the UAE's vibrant, ultra-modern cities such as Dubai, is sure to make you fall in love with this part of the world. It's impossible not to be captivated by a continent that forms the crossroad of civilisations, where modernity meets ancient tradition.
