#1 Corniche

#2 Tripoli, Lebanon

Tripoli is known for its medieval architecture. It is Lebanon's second largest city, meaning its the second most populate. The main religion is Sunni Muslim, They don't drink alcohol very much but they have many different sweets to choose from instead. It is a very good vacation spot if you like architecture and history.

#3 The Dead Sea

Wish you could read a book while relaxing in the ocean but your afraid of drowning? Well if you go to the dead sea that wont be a problem. Due to it's high sodium level your body natural floats, but don't drink the water! If you do the side effects could be deadly. It is located by the Israel/Jordan border.

#4 The Great Pyramid of Giza (Giza, Egypt)

When ever i think about a desert this is exactly what pops up in my mind. The great pyramid of Giza was built over 5,000 years ago and it is the largest/oldest in the Giza Necropolis. Most people have at least seen a picture of the great Pyramid at least once in their lives.

#5 Zakho, Iraq

When people think of Iraq they think of the war that has happened there. While that may be true Iraq has its beautiful places just like everywhere else. Zakho happens to be one of them. It is a few kilometers from the Irai-turkish border and is known for its known for his large ancient Jewish community and it continues into the Tigris Mountains.
