Middle East - The Cradle Of Civilization

The Middle East is a world region that bridges two continents, stretching across south western Asia and North Africa. As one of the wellsprings of human civilisation in the ancient and medieval worlds, the birthplace of at least three world religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) and the focus of much modern economic and political importance, the Middle East remains a popular destination for travellers.
Bahrain - Bahrain is an archipelago in the Persian Gulf, east of Saudi Arabia.
Egypt- The home of the ancient Egyptian civilization, with its temples, hieroglyphs, mummies, and - visible above all - its pyramids. Egypt stimulates the imagination of western tourists like few other countries and is probably one of the most popular tourist destinations world-wide.
Iran - A country in Asia. Located in the Middle East, between the Gulf of Oman, the Persian Gulf, and the Caspian Sea, it is surrounded by Iraq to the west, Turkey, Azerbaijan's Naxcivan enclave, Armenia, and Azerbaijan to the northwest, Turkmenistan to the northeast, Afghanistan and Pakistan to the east.
Iraq - A country in the Middle East. It lies at the north end of the Persian Gulf and has a small (58 km) coastline in the southeast of the country. It is surrounded by Iran to the east, Kuwait to the south, Saudi Arabia to the southwest, Jordan to the west, Syria to the northwest, and Turkey to the north.
Israel - The country has beautiful old cities, good beaches and plenty of culture, history and holy places... and really good food. The best time to visit Israel is March-June or October-November, although climate shouldn't be a major consideration in choosing a time to visit. More...
