Western Asia

Last Updated: 24 February 2018
Western Asia is the birthplace of modern civilisation. On this land Moses, Jesus and Mohammad lived, making it one of the most revered and fought over areas on earth.

In recent years major oil deposits have made many of the countries in this area wealthy beyond belief and today glittering skyscrapers share space with relics from ancient times.

Unsurprisingly peace in the area is fragile and some countries are out of bounds, but you can still put your feet up in Cyprus, shop in Turkey, go on a pilgrimage to Israel or Saudi Arabia, sip wine in Lebanon or Georgia, float on the Dead Sea, gamble in Qatar or stay in a Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum, Jordan.
