Perhaps they were inspired by the breathtaking natural treasures of the Middle East. The landscapes range from dry desert lands through to scenic fertile regions and even snowy peaks in the winter months. The soaring desert creations of Wadi Rum in Jordan, the strange “fairy chimneys” of Cappadocia in Turkey, and the salty expanse of the Dead Sea are real highlights.
The Mediterranean coasts of Turkey, Cyprus and Lebanon offer great beach escapes while the coral and fish-filled waters of the Red Sea amaze underwater explorers.

Especially Israel and Saudi Arabia receive many pilgrims to their holy sites each year, adding to the throngs of local worshippers. The many mosques, churches and temples are fascinating to explore with their ornate interiors that instantly make you forget about the chaotic world outside.
