So I have a dual Israeli-EU citizenship and would like to make like Ibn Battuta visit some MENA countries sometime within the next 3-5 years. What are the highlights of your country? What is it that makes your country special to visit?

Me personally, I am more interested in the things that make a country unique from all the other countries- it's history (historical sites), it's food, it's music, it's art, it's culture, etc. I am less interested in things like skyscrapers (although for Dubai, perhaps an exception should be made ;) ) and shopping malls, since these are things that you can really find in any reasonably developed country.

Shukran! :)

"I am more interested in the things that make a country unique from all the other countries"
1-saudi arabia does not allow alcohol consumption
2-adultery is a crime
3-the only country in the world that put a sign on it embassy saying "drug trafficking is punishable by death" (to give a good first impression)
4-women can't drive cars

saudi arabia is by far the most unique country in the world, that said and I put my voice with Riyadhi "People should NOT visit Saudi Arabia"

No, it's not the ONLY country where you can do that. You can do the same in Turkey. Funny, most Turks also think that you can ONLY do that in Turkey :D I'm sure there are other countries where you can do that.

FOR MOROCCO:

- Moroccan Cuisine is ranked as the best in MENA (3d in Euromed region)

- Morocco is classified 2nd biodiversity hotspot in the Mediterranean (Cedar forest, Sahara desert, windy Atlantic beaches, Mediterranean creeks, Snowy Atlas mountains, Desert canyons, Tropical landscapes....etc)

- Moroccan culture is unique, rich and progressive (Morocco is the only arab country that wasn't under Turkish influence). It's one of the most exotic in the world.

- Moroccan Hospitality: Whether very poor or incredibly rich, Moroccans all share a truly exceptional sense of hospitality
