The Middle East is a vast region with 24 countries that have fantastic vacation spots. The ancient ruins found throughout the region are one of the main reasons thousands of people visit every year. The countries are surrounded by nine bodies of water. Breathtaking views and crystal clear waters belie the fact that many dry desert regions are contained within its borders.
Israel and Egypt are the countries to visit if you want to see amazing architecture of the ancient ruins. Egypt holds the Great Pyramid, which is touted as one of the Wonders of the World. The trip is made on camel back, and the sight of the gargantuan structure promises to awe you. The walls of Jerusalem remain standing to this day. Within the walls are amazing structures built by some of the first Jews who worshiped there.
The climates throughout the Middle East are as varied as the cultures and landscapes. Foods range from fresh fish to exotic vegetable dishes. One country could lead you to a cool beach in the sand and another to the scorching heat of the desert floor. The choice is completely up to you, but one thing you can be sure of is that it will be a vacation you will remember for many years to come.
