The Middle East isn’t at the top of most travelers’ lists for vacation spots, as it’s known for being an area afflicted by religious and social conflicts. But it’s one of the most fascinating regions in the world, with several places completely safe to travel to offering sites and attractions you can’t find anywhere else. One of those safe places is United Arab Emirates. Find one of the largest mosques in the world in its scenic capital city of Abu Dhabi or see one of the greatest modern metropolises of this world in Dubai, an urban oasis where they constantly make things newer, bigger and better. Take in the religious sites of Jerusalem, Israel. In this spiritual center of the world, you’ll go back in time thousands of years ago as you see religious sites and learn about ancient religious history. On the other scale of things, Tel Aviv is an Israeli city filled with a younger population and a hot nightlife scene. Bordering Israel and Jordan is the Dead Sea — the lowest point on Earth. Float weightlessly in the salty water as a beautiful backdrop of mountains surrounds you. Petra, Jordan is the place for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade fans as the city and its sculpted temples were featured in the movie.
