From the bustling medinas and timeless walled cities of Morocco to Egypt's mysterious pyramids and its iconic waterway, the Nile; the sacred sites of Israel, a country worshipped by three faiths, and the ancient attractions of Jordan; the forts, castles and beaches of Oman and the gleaming skyscrapers of the United Arab Emirates; the great ruined cities of Iran and the enigmatic desert kingdom of Saudi Arabia - all are destinations that dazzle and dwarf the modern-day traveller.
