This region of staggering historical remains lays claim to the towering Pyramids and the ancient city of Petra. Yet experiences here are far more diverse than you might expect. You can camp under a star-strewn sky in Oman’s Empty Quarter and taste locally grown wine while staying at a vineyard. Hike in the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco, learn how to make coffee Bedouin style and in Turkey take a hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia’s striking scenery.
