Excellent mountain ranges, beautiful attractions, warm waters and probably the most interesting history on the planet makes the Middle East an ideal spot to visit. With political turmoil, psychological warfare and safe tourism; travelers are regularly maintaining a strategic distance from this lovely piece of the world yet as you will before long find; you don't need to remain away.

From sanctuaries to tombs, from The Dead Sea to lavish peaks to the tallest structure on the planet; these Middle Eastern destinations have something extraordinary to appreciate.
1. Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dubai is one of the best destinations to explore in the Middle East because of its innovation, lavishness and high security. For those solo travelers searching for an advanced Dubai experience don't pass up the world's tallest structure; Burj Khalifa which is 828 meters and 160 stories tall. The dancing Dubai Fountain will take your breath away in their daily show, which can be observed from one of the best spots inside the Dubai Mall. For the history buff; Dubai Museum is an extraordinary spot to begin where current innovation meets history in an underground fortification that shows the entrancing progress from ancient town to a modern city. The old Souks are located on both sides of Dubai Creek and deserves to be visited by the tourists at least ones as you will find the glistening gold souk, spice souk and carpet souk interesting.
On the other hand, for all thrill seekers the adventure of desert safari is worth the experience. Travelers can choose from three desert safari experiences that are Morning Desert Safari, Evening Desert Safari and Overnight Desert Safari. In this unique trip, you will encounter many interesting activities such as camel ride, sandboarding, quad biking, horse riding and watch the live performances of belly dancers, fire performers and sufi tanoura dance. Dubai is the place which you can’t miss out on.
2. Aswan, Egypt
With all the political agitation in Egypt over the past year it is amazing to know how the government have tackled the political unrest and made the tourism secure in this country. At this point when I dove further into the security of Egypt I found that there are secure places to visit; however, this might be the best time to go. From the un-swarmed pyramids of Giza to the east bank of south Egypt, Luxor and Aswan are the best places to explore if you are traveling alone. In Giza, you can explore the famous pyramids of Khufu, Khafre, Sphinx and Menkaure which have revealed several private tombs, complexes and quarters. Luxor is often called as the open-air museum because it has a huge number of monuments and structures which were built in ancient times.

I recommend leaving your usual routine behind to investigate this island with attractive places like Paphos and Nicosia.

My main pick for the most secure places to visit in the Middle East is Jordan. Jordan's security is top notch, however, it is the closest territory to Syria and Iraq (3km inside the two fringes), but that doesn't mean you can't explore Jordan. Make a point to visit Petra, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World where the stunning remains will have you in awe. Buoy in the Dead Sea, make a plunge in the warm waters at Aqaba or unwind in the normal underground aquifers underneath a cascade. To make you feel much more calm in this brilliant place; a great many people in Jordan communicate in English. Try not to be apprehensive; be enchanted.
