Middle East Vacation Packages: Old & New
Whether you’re cruising the dunes of the Arabian desert or basking in luxury at the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, the Middle East brings the best of the old world and the new. In the United Arab Emirates, visit the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital and learn about the ancient art of Falconry, a popular UAE pastime. Then, fast forward to the present day and visit Abu Dhabi’s Ferrari World and feel the city’s Grand Prix spirit. Oman offers lush valleys, and cities of forts and minarets. Wherever you’re going in the Middle East, Heritage Travels can connect you with a tailor-made vacation package or deal.
The Middle East at a Glance
Visas: When visiting the Middle East, consider applying for your visa in advance if you want to travel to Egypt, Qatar or Oman. If you are from the United States, or several other approved countries, you can receive a visa to enter the United Arab Emirates upon your arrival. Finally, if you plan to visit Israel during your Middle East trip, it is important to note that some Middle Eastern countries will not admit visitors who have Israeli visas or stamps in their passports.
Female Travelers: Female travelers to the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and Oman are not required to wear hijabs or burkas, but local customs generally call for modest dress. Women traveling alone may get questions about their marital status, and should consider group travel, particularly in Egypt.
Safety: Major cities in the United Arab Emirates, resort and tourist areas in Egypt, and resorts in Oman are considered safe for travel. If you plan to go off the beaten path, do your research or hire a guide.
