The first civilisations of the Middle East are among the oldest in the world. Alphabets, law codes, and cities all began here, as did the world's three great monotheistic religions: Christianity, Islam and Judaism. The Middle East’s story is our story. Nature has been an ever-present force here, shaping the jagged mountains, fertile plains and harsh deserts that form the backdrop to this remarkable region's rich cultural heritage. Beyond city limits, the Middle East is a land of life sustaining rivers, mighty desert, lush oases and dramatic landscapes of unimaginable beauty.
The natural world here is diverse and thriving. A visit to the Dead Sea is like nothing you’ll experience anywhere else. The people of the Middle East are some of the most hospitable on the planet, and the ruins and relics you encounter are their heritage. They come from the land of the Pharaohs; their culture is displayed in the delicate carvings of Petra; they embody the charm of a traditional bazaar and colour of a market square; and they are just one chapter in the Arabian Nights legend.
