Destinations / Middle East

Baalbek, Lebanon

Here you can tour giant Roman ruins, most likely alone. Most of the ruins here are in good condition and receive hundreds of visitors every day. Lebanon is one of the most off-the-beaten-track destinations in the region, and you can experience the greatest Roman ruins like nowhere else.

 

Amman, Jordan

An affordable alternative to overcrowded Rome, Jordan has many ancient ruins, including a massive amphitheater. Its Mediterranean food can also rival Rome’s. Jordanian beer and wine are worth exploring at Carakale, a brewery outside of Amman with a great view of the Blue Valley.

 

Muscat, Oman

Muscat is perfect for travelers seeking a quiet, waterfront cultural hub of picturesque mosques, expansive beaches and 16th-century Portuguese forts.

 

Hurghada, Egypt

Here you can find some of the best snorkeling in the world without worrying about bleached reefs or overcrowded beaches. There is also a massive aquarium and zoo, and water parks in Hurghada.

 

Taghazout, Morocco

Technically Africa, but you can surf without crowds, and indulge in cultural offerings beyond just palm trees and towering resorts. The colorful fishing village of Taghazout is one of the best places for surfing. It is also perfect for hiking with Paradise Valley desert trails leading to swimming holes.
