Is it really that much more spectacular than other desert landscapes in the middle East. I could not care if I ever saw another camel again and do not think the landscape looks to much different that the desert around Kerman in Iran. Why does everyone say it is a highlight? I'm struggling to be sold on it.

Appreciate honest opinions and whether anyone who has travelled a lot on this part of the world will be disappointed, especially given the cost.

I crossed the Bashmagh to Penjwen border on foot for the Irani side yesterday. Using an Irish passport I got a 30 day stamp, no fee, and was politely welcomed into Kurdistan. A number of checkpoints on the way to Sulaymaniyah but nothing more than routine.

Evening All,

As stated in my previous post we will be traveling from Johannesburg to Tel Aviv. The cheapest option currently available is with Egypt Air and Air Sinai. I have never heard of Air Sinai and after some research I understand that they are part of Egypt Air. Has anyone ever flown this route? How easy is the transfer at Cairo? The layover is 3hr20min, is the time enough? I heard a rumour that one cannot check in luggage directly to Tel Aviv from JHB - any truth to this matter?
Any…

Evening all
We are 2 people wanting to explore Israel for 7 days (29 October - 5 November) We are from South Africa and we are very excited to travel to a country so rich in history and culture. We are young adults and would like to experience both culture, art, food, nightlife and if possible some beach bliss while visiting Israel.
We were thinking 3 days Tel Aviv, 3 days Jerusalem and perhaps one day Masada? Is this a feasible time spent in each location to explore and take it all in.
I have…

Hi All!

Headed to Iran in November, and I'm very excited! I received my authorization number from my travel agency, however, I was wondering about the visa application here: http://www.daftar.org/forms/visas/101.pdf

There is a question on the form asking 'Please Enter The Name & Address Of Two Of Your Friends Or Relatives In Iran'. I don't have any friends or relatives in Iran, so I was thinking of just listing the hotels I would be staying at on this line? Anyone else who's run into this same…
