WHERE TRADITIONS AND DESERT MEET MODERN CITIES
Dubai and Abu Dhabi present the modern face of the Middle East; the excessive wealth here has been used to create a tourist’s paradise complete with sprawling malls and world-beating hotels.
In Dubai, you can revel in the views of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa; take a trip to the desert with a jeep trip across the dunes, or simply unwind on one of the pristine beaches of Jumeirah and the man-made Palm.
Just an hour’s drive is the competitive neighbour of Abu Dhabi with equally modern hotels and bold attractions. Make sure to wander around the grandest mosque in the world – the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
Oman is the real hidden gem of the Arabian Peninsula and represents a traditional take on Arabic values alongside decadent luxury. Experience dramatic coastlines and rugged mountains to wild wadis and vast sandy deserts.
Sitting at the crossroads of the ancient world, the kingdom of Jordan is blessed with historical treasures, none bigger than the ancient ruins of Petra, one of the New Wonders of the World. Wadi Rum is a magical ecosystem in the Jordanian desert featuring sweeping red sand dunes and towering sandstone arches. Rest your legs and feel completely weightless by floating in the calm waters of the Dead Sea.
With holy sites and sacred stories oozing from its ancient landscapes, most travellers flock to Israel to walk through the pages of history. But with a coastline bordering the Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, Dead Sea and Sea of Galilee, there’s plenty of opportunities to relax in a luxurious beach resort.
