Welcome to Western Asia
Surrounded by seas, Western Asia fuses cultures, languages, religions and landscapes to create a beguiling mosaic of travel experiences. Everywhere you look, there’s a sea bordering the region, from the Red Sea to the Aegean Sea, from the Mediterranean to the Persian Gulf.
In Jordan, be mystified in ancient Petra, a red sandstone treasure first inhabited in the 4th century BC. In Cyprus, swim at a secluded beach or visit the Tombs of the Kings in Cyprus. Gape at Dubai’s sky-high architecture and visit the Qasr Al Watan center in Abu Dhabi to learn about the country’s rich history. Shop for spices, fruits, cheese and local delicacies in Tel Aviv’s vibrant Carmel Market or Jerusalem’s Machane Yehuda Market. Decipher prehistoric petroglyphs and go deep into craggy caves in Armenia.
Feel the history in the air as you make your way through Western Asia, the birthplace of modern civilization and one of the world’s most revered regions.
