#1 Tel Aviv
#2 Haifa
#3 Dubai
#4 Kuwait City
#5 Al Qurnah*

*Small city in Iraq where the Trigris and Eufraties rivers split - it has tons of great kind people and great scenery too - I sure hope I can come back under more peaceful conditions in a couple of years.

There's some great locations for high quality hotels and the Garden of Eden is said to have been located there, there's even a small park with a very old tree ( said to be the "tree of knowledge" ).

If anyone has been there pre 2003 please PM me

I only know Dubai 12 years ago... but from the pics and what I know about the places I would say:

1 - Jerusalem (2000 years of interesting history and beautiful center)
2 - Dubai (the city of the future)
3 - Cairo (mystical labyrinth though traffic-problems)
4 - Beirut (the Paris of the ME, beautiful setting)
5 - Teheran, Baghdad or Damaskus... all very big interesting places.

Maybe Turkey is part of the Middle East, but Istanbul is Europe 4 sure! If you can say Istanbul than you can even say Baku here, I want to go there! But that's not Middle East too...
