Where in the Middle East?

Jump to last reply

It has been two years since I've traveled in the Middle East and I am considering a return to the region in late-November/ early-December of this year as one of my next journeys. My previous trips have taken me to parts of Turkey, Jordan, and the UAE. Hiking in Petra and Cappadocia, along with my time in Istanbul and Dubai, rank among my top travel experiences.

I am considering flying into Istanbul and staying for 3-4 days and then moving from there. I've put some thought into places like Egypt, Oman, and Lebanon, and may wind up choosing one or none of these. I will probably have 2-3 weeks in addition to transit time and Istanbul.

Where would you go? What are some experiences that perhaps you may be interesting in sharing? I am looking for a discussion of what others have done and enjoyed to help me think about and formulate an itinerary.

Thank you as always.
