The Middle East – unique and exotic, to say the least. Mmmkay, but what is the Middle East, actually? I know most people wonder, so let me elucidate the mystery. The Middle East is, in geographical terms, a part of the world that encompasses southwest Asia and a small part of North Africa. Think about Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Iraq, Israel, Yemen, Egypt, Jordan and everything in-between.
Hey, don’t feel bad if you weren’t sure where this region is, as the term is relatively new and it was used for the first time at the beginning of the 20th century. For most of us, it’s still confusing anyway. But one thing’s for sure: if you want to organise a Middle East travel tour, you’re in for a treat! Just picture this: impressive sky-high buildings, tons of hummus, hot air balloons, majestic pyramids, buoyant floating in dead seas and ancient ruins to explore. Told you it’s exotic!
