Spring is a great time of year to visit North Africa or the Middle East. Countries such as Morocco are home to beautiful cities such as Marrakech and Casablanca, visiting the souks and the kasbahs. You could follow this with a few days sunning yourself on one of the countries beautiful beaches, or you may prefer to visit the desert, riding on a camel.
Jordan is also becoming an increasingly popular destination, from its vast desert landscapes, to the popular shores of the Dead Sea; and no trip to Jordan would be complete without visiting the legendary Red Rose City of Petra, one of the seven wonders of the world.
Of course, one of the most popular destinations in the Middle East in recent times is Dubai. Offering a marvellous array of fine dining, shopping, hotels and entertainment, it has become a much more accessible holiday destination due to low-cost airfares.
