Few places on earth serve up the kind of sheer diversity as a holiday in the Middle East. In fact, with so much on offer, you'll be stumped to know what to pack.
The Middle East - the Cradle of Civilisation - is simply bursting with the sorts of eye-popping experiences you wouldn't expect from a typical week in the sun. And sunny it is, too. Not only will you return home with a killer suntan, you'll also find all the ingredients for that all-important holiday recipe. With lashings of sun, sea and sand, the Middle East certainly knows how to do beach breaks.
But let's not forget the real reason visitors come to the Middle East. Explore Laurence of Arabia's hideout. Step onto the world's most famous man-made island. Haggle your heart out amongst the lively hustle and bustle of a morning market. And that's just for starters.
Soaring mountains, arid desert landscape and glistening blue seas apart, this place is a hotbed of culture. Take Israel for instance. Designer skyscrapers rub shoulders with gilded temples. Holy spots share ground space with chic cafes. And some of the best diving in the world is just around the corner.
What's more, the spa-seekers among us will be knocked for six with Israel's totally organic offering. At the lowest point on earth, the Dead Sea is so rich in salt and minerals that you can simply float to your heart's content. Let the dense waters work their magic, before smothering yourself in mineral-intoxicated mud and enjoying a nature's-own all-over body mask. Heaven.
This legendary land has so much up its sleeve. After all, where else can you spend a morning shopping and stop for a cappuccino, before walking in the footsteps of Biblical heroes? One thing's for sure; a holiday in the Middle East will have you coming back for more.
