  • Ras Al Khaimah is a perfect base to explore the emirate by the same name with its endless adventure activities, including visits to medieval ruins, hilltop forts and the highest peak in the United Arab Emirates. © Saletomic | Dreamstime.com
  • Whereas many Middle Eastern urban destinations modernize and construct skyscrapers and tourist attractions at a rapid pace, Kuwait City makes a concerted effort to preserve its heritage while still catering to travelers’ contemporary needs. © Abdulla Husain - Dreamstime.com
  • See the Red Sea from Egypt’s shores when you visit Hurghada (we know Egypt is technically in Africa, but we’re including on this list). While Hurghada is a resort town, it doesn’t compare in size to similar destinations, meaning fewer crowds. The waters in the area are known for impressive coral reefs. © Andrii Kucher - Dreamstime.com
  • Walk among fantastically preserved Roman ruins in Baalbek, Lebanon. The remote destination receives few visitors in comparison to other Middle Eastern cities, so enjoy roaming the UNESCO World Heritage site and its two temples in peace. © Milonk | Dreamstime.com
  • Find big business, great nightlife and modern amenities in Iraq when you visit Erbil. The cosmopolitan hub is filled with shopping, history and culture. © Hussam Mustafa - Dreamstime.com
  • For budget-friendly travel and a laidback atmosphere, visit Dahab, Egypt. The shore town serves plenty of scuba diving and fresh seafood to travelers primarily visiting from Europe. © Marketa Novakova - Dreamstime.com
  • In Bahrain, Manama is the place to go for sporting events, a burgeoning food scene, nightlife and a rather liberal atmosphere compared to what travelers experience in neighboring countries. © Galina Sandalova - Dreamstime.com
