The Middle East is a cradle of civilisations and a beautiful, complicated land that's home to some of the world's most hospitable people. Here, the modern metropolises of the Emirates contrast with ancient cities such as Petra and Jerash, and the traditional Bedouin way of life in the desert. Experience a rapidly growing new world in modern Dubai and Doha, explore bustling souks, or escape to one of Oman’s golden beaches.
Offering astonishing buildings, a boundless diversity of activities and luxurious hotels, The United Arab Emirates is an ever changing country that is both glamorous and extraordinary. Dominated by the cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai (who tends to take all the glory), there is a lot more to this small country than meets the eye.
If you are after the authentic Middle East, Oman, Jordan and Israel offer World Heritage Sites, traditional Arabic villages and inspiring dessert landscapes. From the Rose-Red City of Petra, to Oman’s Daymaniyats islands and historic sites of Jerusalem, this area really packs a huge punch in terms of a travel experience.
