Lebanon travel guide

4.2
Landmarks · Monuments · Ruins
With a lengthy coastline along the Mediterranean, Lebanon has attracted its share of foreign invaders, from ancient Phoenicians and Egyptians to the medieval Crusaders and Ottoman Turks. Each of these peoples left an indelible mark on the tiny country's cultural heritage, art, religious traditions, and cuisine. Though it shares a border with troubled Syria, Lebanon remains one of the Arab world's most charming destinations. A tour of Lebanon allows travelers to discover modern seaside resorts, ancient ruins, lush nature reserves, and dynamic cities. Base your Lebanon vacation in Beirut, a cosmopolitan capital known for its cafe culture and European architecture, as well as many museums, parks, and squares.

Israel travel guide

4.7
Land of Creation
Surprisingly diverse for such a narrow strip of land pressed against the Mediterranean, modern Israel only dates back to 1948, though the history of this "Holy Land" spans many millennia. The big three monotheistic religions--Christianity, Judaism, and Islam--maintain extremely strong ties to this part of the world, so you can expect to see plenty of historic churches, mosques, and synagogues during your holiday in Israel. Beyond the undeniable cultural appeal, Israel also offers impressive natural features, including the Dead Sea and Makhtesh Ramon, one of the world's biggest craters. As you tour Israel, you'll find yourself following in the footsteps of figures that helped shape the world thousands of years ago.

Palestinian Territories travel guide

4.2
Sacred & Religious Sites · Landmarks · Ruins
Three entities occupied by Israel since the Six-Day War of 1967, the Palestinian Territories include East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, and the West Bank. Although the political status of this area remains the subject of negotiations, tourist attractions in the Palestinian Territories continue to appeal to curious travelers from distant corners of the globe. A trip to this part of the world takes you back in time and allows you to discover numerous locations prominently mentioned in the Bible, including the Dead Sea, Bethlehem, and the Judean Desert. Many begin their tour of the Palestinian Territories in Ramallah, the area's de facto capital and an ideal place from which to explore the surrounding countryside.
