Frequently Asked Questions
Middle East Prepaid Travel SIM Cards
Planning a trip to the Middle East?
The Middle East is perhaps the most underrated part of this world when it comes to tourism, which makes it one of our favourite travel destinations. Low numbers of tourists mean places have retained a lot of their traditional culture without becoming overly commercialised. It also means there are countless hidden gems waiting to be discovered – ones that haven’t popped up on your social media feed a thousand times already!
With a variety of countries across the Middle East, you’ll be spoilt for choice on your trip. Think grand mosques, bustling night bazaars, tropical oases, vast deserts and locals that are eager to show you their way of life.
Whether you’re planning to step back 2,000 years in time to discover the ancient ruins of Petra, pamper yourself with a luxurious beach and shopping holiday in Dubai, get off the beaten path with an ATV tour through the Wadi Rum Desert, or snap a few shots in the famous Blue City of Morocco – the Middle East has something for everyone.
Our top recommendations for an unforgettable trip include watching the sunrise in a hot air balloon over Cappadocia, scuba diving the shipwrecks of the Red Sea, travelling by camel to the pyramids of Giza, and glamping under a starry sky in the Sahara Desert.
Middle Eastern cuisine has become so popular across the world that you’d almost struggle not to find a kebab shop in any major city. Other dishes popular in the Middle East include hummus, halloumi and falafel – all of which are packed full of flavour, and nothing beats trying these popular delicacies in the place where they originated!
