The Middle East is one of history’s grand epics – a cradle of civilisations and a beautiful, complicated land that’s home to some of the most hospitable people on the planet.

Beyond city limits, the Middle East is a land of mighty rivers (the Nile, Euphrates), even mightier deserts (the Sahara and peerless Wadi Rum) and green landscapes of exceptional beauty. Exploring these wilderness areas – from snow-capped summits in Turkey, Iran and Lebanon to the kaleidoscopic waters of the Red Sea – lies at the heart of the region’s appeal. The message is simple: Forget the clichés that masquerade as Middle Eastern truth – a visit here is one of the most varied and soulful travel experiences on earth.

From the ‘Paris of the Middle East’ – Lebanon, to the cosmopolitan – Dubai, there is a piece of the Middle East to suit everyone’s taste.
