Bahrain travel guide

Kuwait travel guide

Shopping Malls · Architectural Buildings · Shopping
Small in terms of land area but hugely rich in oil reserves, Kuwait sits in the middle of a region disputed by many would-be conquerors, each of whom has left an indelible mark over the ages. Expatriates make up nearly two thirds of Kuwait's population, drawn here by the thriving economy based almost entirely on petroleum exports. For casual travelers, a holiday in Kuwait means a chance to explore outstanding museums, sun-kissed beaches, and a lively restaurant scene serving authentic Arab cuisine. Less popular than some of the other oil-rich Gulf countries, Kuwait remains relatively unspoiled by mass tourism, though it boasts more than a fair share of extravagant shopping malls, picturesque marinas, and modern waterfront resorts.

Saudi Arabia travel guide

4.1
Sacred & Religious Sites · Landmarks · Shopping Malls
With coastlines on two seas, Saudi Arabia boasts some of the world's top scuba diving locations. At the same time, it has tourist attractions of such cultural heft as Mecca and Medina, the most sacred destinations for Muslim travelers and pilgrims. When it comes to relaxation and recreation, a trip to Saudi Arabia opens a world of possibilities for outdoor adventures, which include desert excursions by horse or camel, mountain climbing, cycling, and camping under the starry sky. Think about beginning or ending your tour of Saudi Arabia in Jeddah, a cosmopolitan center of commerce, shopping, and dining situated on the Red Sea coastline.

Yemen travel guide

4.3
Ruins · Nature & Parks · Landmarks
Years of political instability and armed conflicts have kept Yemen off most travel itineraries, yet this country boasts an incredibly rich history and equally impressive landscapes. Home of the biblical kingdom of Sheba, which thrived for over a thousand years, Yemen entered the 20th century divided between the British and Ottoman empires. Independent since 1990, the country remains highly troubled, with tourism in Yemen virtually nonexistent. The few travelers who make it there discover an ancient land of sleepy mountain villages, marine life-rich coral reefs, and forests boasting some of the rarest tree species in the world.

Jordan travel guide

4.2
Historic Sites · Ruins · Deserts
For such a small country, Jordan boasts a surprising variety of natural landscapes and urban attractions. A trip to Jordan takes visitors on a journey back to biblical times, when sites like the Dead Sea and the ancient yet astonishingly well-preserved city of Petra seemed to be at the heart of world events. Although covered in rocky deserts, Jordan boasts a good network of roads, which makes sightseeing by car an easy way to discover many of the country's top highlights. Begin your tour of Jordan in Amman, the largest urban center and a major political, cultural, and economic hub of this Middle Eastern kingdom.

Israel travel guide

4.7
Sacred & Religious Sites · Historic Sites · Ruins
Land of Creation
Surprisingly diverse for such a narrow strip of land pressed against the Mediterranean, modern Israel only dates back to 1948, though the history of this "Holy Land" spans many millennia. The big three monotheistic religions--Christianity, Judaism, and Islam--maintain extremely strong ties to this part of the world, so you can expect to see plenty of historic churches, mosques, and synagogues during your holiday in Israel. Beyond the undeniable cultural appeal, Israel also offers impressive natural features, including the Dead Sea and Makhtesh Ramon, one of the world's biggest craters. As you tour Israel, you'll find yourself following in the footsteps of figures that helped shape the world thousands of years ago.

Syria travel guide

4.6
Sacred & Religious Sites · Historic Sites · Flea Markets
Before the eruption of a devastating civil war in 2011, Syria enjoyed a reputation as one of the safest Middle Eastern countries. Most visitors took a trip to Syria for a chance to visit Damascus, an ancient city filled with Christian church spires and Muslim minarets. The country offered tourists a lively cafe culture and many art galleries, which often sat next door to traditional hammams. Today, Syria represents one of the world's most dangerous places, nearly impossible to visit by foreigners. Until peace returns, dozens of Roman ruins--legendary Palmyra among them--remain off limits and off the radar to all but the most intrepid and daring explorers.

Lebanon travel guide

4.2
Landmarks · Monuments · Ruins
With a lengthy coastline along the Mediterranean, Lebanon has attracted its share of foreign invaders, from ancient Phoenicians and Egyptians to the medieval Crusaders and Ottoman Turks. Each of these peoples left an indelible mark on the tiny country's cultural heritage, art, religious traditions, and cuisine. Though it shares a border with troubled Syria, Lebanon remains one of the Arab world's most charming destinations. A tour of Lebanon allows travelers to discover modern seaside resorts, ancient ruins, lush nature reserves, and dynamic cities. Base your Lebanon vacation in Beirut, a cosmopolitan capital known for its cafe culture and European architecture, as well as many museums, parks, and squares.

Iraq travel guide

4
Parks · Historic Sites · Shopping Malls
Encompassing the fertile area between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers once called Mesopotamia, modern Iraq is marked by turmoil, torn between its rich historical heritage and recent instability and bloodshed. Few tourists choose to vacation in Iraq, put off by reports of violence and destruction that have shaken the country to its core. Still, the semi-autonomous province of Kurdistan remains seemingly insulated from the chaos of the rest of the country. This small region draws a growing number of foreign travelers, enticed by the area's rugged appeal and numerous lakes, archaeological sites, and impressive mountains.

Iran travel guide

4.5
Sacred & Religious Sites · Ruins · Specialty Museums
Known as Persia for most of its long history, Iran once represented a mighty empire that encompassed everything from modern Turkey in the west to India in the east. Today, visitors on a tour of Iran discover a country of numerous ethnic groups and a culture revealing traces of Arab, Greek, Mongol, and Turkish influences. Sightseeing in Iran allows you to follow in the ancient footsteps of a former world power, nowhere more apparent than at Persepolis, an old Persian capital established long before the birth of Christ and burned down by Alexander of Macedonia. Other highlights on an Iranian itinerary may include visits to cozy teahouses, busy open-air markets, vast deserts dotted with otherworldly oases, and rugged mountains presiding over plains, forests, and meandering rivers.

Qatar travel guide

4
Scenic Walking Areas · Art Museums · Landmarks
Sitting on a peninsula that juts out into the Persian Gulf, little Qatar covers a small amount of territory but contains big reserves of natural gas and oil, boosting the per capita income to levels greater than in many highly industrialized Western countries. Ideal for travelers interested in taking a trip back in time, a vacation in Qatar also allows explorers to discover modern cities boasting outstanding museums, a lively arts scene, and an eclectic culinary heritage. In a country that embraces the future without forgetting its past, it's still possible to spend time learning about the centuries-old art of falconry or ride off into the sunset on the back of a docile camel.

Oman travel guide

4.4
Sacred & Religious Sites · Beaches · Flea Markets
Underdeveloped and largely ignored by foreign visitors until the 1970s, Oman now represents one of the region's top vacation destinations, attracting tourists with its pretty beaches, impressive dunes, and friendly mountain villages. A tour of Oman allows travelers to discover a traditional Middle Eastern way of life, authentic cuisine, and thriving urban centers where centuries-old heritage meets every modern amenity under the sun. In a country of well-maintained roads, many visitors choose to drive from one city to the next, where a typical Oman itinerary will include World Heritage Sites, historic forts, modern beaches, and an eclectic dining scene.
