The Middle East is fast becoming one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. A lot of the countries were previously closed off to tourists due to political upheaval, but now many of them are making an effort to increase tourism and there are so many great countries to visit in the region. A lot of people don’t really consider it, but it is an incredibly rich and diverse region of the world, and if you are looking for a different travel experience, you will definitely find it there. These are some of the best countries to visit in the Middle East. 


Dubai is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Middle East, and if you want luxury travel, this is the perfect place for you. It has some of the most incredible architecture in the world, including the Burj Khalifa, formerly the tallest building in the world. You will also find some of the best restaurants in the world and some amazing luxury resorts to stay in. Dubai is one of those places where you need to take full advantage of the whole experience, so splash out for an airport lounge before you go, and save up some money to pay for a top resort.

Israel is an amazing country that has plenty to explore, and there is something to offer for every type of traveller. It has a rich history and some incredible cities filled with world famous religious sites. But if you are not interested in the history and heritage, there are some great mountain landscapes to explore or beautiful beaches to relax on. There are some great group tours to Israel that take in all of the major sites and give you a good cross section of the country. If you have never visited before, this is a great option for your first trip. If you are going to visit Israel, it is important that you pack modest clothing to wear when visiting religious sites. Be prepared for tight security at the airport as well because Israel has a difficult political past and it is not uncommon for western tourists to be strictly interviewed at the airport. 


Many Middle Eastern countries have been through a lot of economic development and, although places like Israel still retain a lot of their cultural heritage, the big tourist attractions can take away from the experience in some of these countries. But if you want a more authentic experience, Kuwait is a great country to visit. Kuwait city, in particular, is filled with beautiful mosques and there are some great museums where you can learn more about the history and the culture of the area. 

The Middle East is a daunting travel destination for a lot of people because many of the countries were considered dangerous in the past. But there are so many great places to discover and as long as you do your research beforehand, it is perfectly safe.
