Middle East

As exciting as long haul travel can be, many of the world’s most fascinating destinations are right on our doorstep here in the Middle East. Indeed, the region has something for everyone, whether you want to conquer the outdoors, dive the depths of the Arabian Gulf, or simply wallow in luxury at a spectacular resort.

During the cooler months, Oman becomes a playground for grownups looking to let loose in the great outdoors. Whether you bike, hike, dive or snorkel, or simply want to explore in a 4X4, you can pick your passion in Oman.  For an even more dramatic landscape, nothing beats a trip to Jordan and the UNESCO listed city of Petra.

The Middle East makes for great city breaks too. For a smaller, less explored capital, try Manama in Bahrain, or visit Qatar for a luxe shopping break. The UAE’s own cities are perfect for a staycation – book a fancy hotel, treat yourself to world-class meals and attractions, and have a memorable weekend without even having to get on a plane. 

However, if you’ve exhausted the UAE’s nightlife scene, a short break to Lebanon will surely perk you up – before tiring you out. The capital city, Beirut, has a legendary reputation among night owls. It’s also one of the only places in the world where you can recover the next day by hitting the beach or the ski slopes.
