"One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things."
The Middle East is a region of much political and economical unrest; yet at the same time it offers some of the most impressive and magical places on Earth. And it all began in Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization.
Whether it is religion you are interested in or ancient civilizations, in the Middle East you can find it all: Petra, the ancient rock city in Jordan; the tower houses in Shibam, Yemen; mosques in Istanbul, Turkey; or Jerusalem, the Holy City for Christians, Jews, and Muslims alike.
Between the Mediterranean and Red Sea on the one side and deserts and the Dead Sea on the other; between ancient civilizations and modern cities; the Middle East is a place of extremes that will surprise you everywhere you go.
