First, let’s take a look at one of the Arab world’s newer cities, Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. The skyline is filled with modern skyscrapers and the city’s surrounded by vast, open deserts and other interesting natural landscapes. It is vibrant, and there are plenty of attractions to keep you busy, including a great nightlife.
Treat yourself to a tour through the city, followed by some shopping in one of Dubai’s luxury shopping malls.

If you don’t feel up to going out at night, the resorts have some pleasant dining experiences for their clients.
Pamukkale, otherwise known as “The Cotton Fortress” is a cascade of hot mineral baths situated in the open air on limestone cliffs in Turkey. The mineral water comes from underground springs, and as it cools, it forms hard white pools. The water is rich in calcium, and a hot mineral spa bath on the open cliff tops is a great way for couples to rejuvenate.
The Aegean coast is close by and easily accessible if you’d prefer to spend the rest of your time at the seaside. Aphrodisias is enjoyed by many couples in search of a romantic adventure in Turkey.
The Dead Sea in Palestine draws thousands of tourists every year to its salty waters, which are surrounded by sandy desert hills in the vicinity. The Dead Sea has such a high salinity, and as a result, no life can exist there. What is it that attracts people to this open body of water?
Well, being so salty, it makes it incredibly easy to float. It is hard to resist lying on the surface of the sea without any effort whatsoever and simply relaxing and taking in the sights. It may be a good alternative to your usual vacation.
