Need a break? Want to go on holiday? Well, have you considered a trip to the Middle East this time?

Due to political turmoil and disturbances, planning a holiday in the Middle East may sound a little unsafe.

But, the Middle East still has a lot to offer its tourists while ensuring they're safe there.

Three Middle East countries which are still very safe to travel and explore are Israel, Jordan, and Oman.


Israel offers a variety of experiences ranging from history, archaeological sites and education to beauty, splendor and unlimited fun.

This magnificent country has much more to offer you than you could ever expect.

Israel is said to be the world’s “only Jewish and democratic state” but this country isn't limited to cultural and heritage sites.

The Mediterranean coast, the Dead Sea, the Galilee region with its green hills and valleys and the undying festive spirit of the country never cease to amaze and make a luxury holiday in Israel unforgettable.

The best time to travel Israel is now, so pack your bags and head off to this wonderful land.

Jordan, like Israel, is totally safe to travel and is one of the countries where you can get great holiday deals in the Middle East.

You will never be disappointed to explore this beautiful land where you will receive a very warm welcome from the locals.

Jordan is a very peaceful and safe country to travel so do not restrain yourself from planning your trip to Jordan.

Keep all your worries aside and step up to allow this beautiful land to make your life more exciting and enjoyable.

Beauty comes in various forms in Jordan, in the form of the Dead Sea to the Red Sea or in the vast expanse of deserts.

Spending time in Wadi Rum could be your best experience ever.

You can get involved in exploring the history of Amman as well as enjoy its mouth-watering cuisine.

Jordan with its hospitality and warmth of its residents will only leave you surprised.

Oman too brings you an amazing experience wiping out all the misconceptions you had about traveling in the Middle East.

Whether it is Oman’s mind-blowing golden deserts or stunning beaches, it is determined to leave you spellbound.

The Musandam Fjords, The Omani Grand Canyon, The Green Mountain, Sur Turtles or Salalah, all will make you go crazy about this beautiful land.

The best time to travel Oman is from November to March.

Going off-road driving bashing the sand dunes in the desert will always be an unforgettable memory for me.

But while packing your bags choose your clothes wisely.

Pack clothes which will cover your knees and shoulder irrespective of your sex and age.

Wear proper, suitable clothing and enjoy your trip!
