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.

Egypt travel guide

4.5
Ruins · Scuba & Snorkeling · Monuments
Gift of the Nile
The land of pharaohs, pyramids, sphinxes, and papyrus, Egypt needs little by way of introduction. Visitors find more than a textbook readout of ancient history when visiting the country--the power, scale, art, and mysticism of its centuries-old culture bleed out from each landmark attraction and seep into the everyday life. Bustling markets, the slow-flowing Nile, the vast desert, and inspiring archeological sites often sit right alongside palaces of great excess and historical importance. All ensure you have plenty to see and do during your vacation in Egypt. In the wake of the Arab Spring in 2011, travel to certain areas where conflict and terrorism are deemed likely remains inadvisable for foreign visitors.

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.

Sudan travel guide

3.9
Specialty Museums · Landmarks · Ruins
Splitting with South Sudan in 2011, Sudan remains a vast, diverse place. Desert and savannah landscapes dominate much of the north and south, while the east and west are primarily mountainous. Ancient Nubian ruins dot the desert areas in the north, with the section close to the Nile once home to great and powerful kingdoms. The main cities offer an array of interesting and evocative Islamic sites, with many centuries-old mosques and religious schools and market squares--all worthy of addition on a comprehensive Sudan itinerary.

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.

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.
