This region located in Western Asia and Northern Africa has been in the news not for its beauty and history, but for the wars that haven taken place here. Although many people think this a “keep-out” zone, there are multiple places you can visit with no inconvenients. Many civilizations were born in this part of the world and despite colonizations, wars, looting and destruction, some roots and architecture marvels are still conserved.

Plan ahead of time and prepare the appropriate papers for your trip. Some countries don’t give tourist visas, like Saudi Arabia, unless you are part of a bigger tourist group. Countries like Iraq, Syria and the Gaza Strip are considered war zones and it is better to be careful if visiting. At the same time, some countries have a bad relationship with Israel so if you own an Israeli visa or have a stamp in your passport, it might be a problem if you wish to visit other places, except Turkey, Egypt and Jordan. In any case, just plan ahead of time and be informed before getting your tickets or making any decisions. Middle Eastern well planned has a lot to offer.
