Middle east - shellseekers

The Middle East includes a number of destinations which work well either as sole holidays, stopovers, or combinations with neighbouring destinations or those further afield. They are perfect for winter sunshine because of the high standard of accommodation, interesting history and (very important) warm weather during the European winter.

Oman is a fascinating country which combines history, beaches, mountains, wildlife, culture and a warm welcome. We would always suggest at least 10 days, but if combining with somewhere like Sri Lanka you can get a good feel for it in 7 days. Dubai is a good choice for relaxing, but also has much of interest if looking for more than sun and a pool. Similarly, Abu Dhabi is somewhere which has excellent galleries as well as plenty to do for the active.

Jordan has culture and history everywhere you turn and deserves a good 10-14 days for anyone visiting. It also has great food!

We have deliberately not included reams of detail on each destinations’ page because we would like to create an itinerary suited to each enquiry. However, we do have tried and trusted itineraries which we will happily send out as a first step.

We get Special Offers coming through all the time – so if you are interested in the Middle East for your holiday, please let us know and we can contact you with any relevant Specials which could be appropriate.
