It is here that the longest inhabited cities are found and where not only goods and merchandise have been heavily trafficked over the centuries but peoples along with their stories, ideas, philosophies and faiths. This is where the west is left behind as it slowly but surely transfigures into eastern exotic-ness.
Down through the ages
The cradle of modern civilisation; this is where pharaohs ruled from their Nile command centre, where the eastern extremities of the Roman Byzantine Empire reached and where Ottaman Sultans conquered. There are the peaceful hallways of palatial mosques, the Great Pyramid of Giza and the lost and found again red city of Petra in Jordan.
Refined and sophisticated
Here you can rub shoulders with Bedouin story tellers in back alley coffee houses and browse the wears of nomadic gypsies in century-old bazaars. Plunge flat breads into hummus in side street cafes, cool off with a refreshing Ayran – a salted summer yoghurt drink – or sip thick Arabic coffee from elegant glasses.
