A region so often misunderstood, easily accessible pockets of the Middle East offer a peek into where religion began. Here, Christianity, Judaism and Islam can live alongside each other and Wix Squared has chosen to focus on a few distinctive destinations; Israel, Jordan, Oman and the United Arab Emirates.
The dry and barren climate of the Arabian world creates the perfect backdrop for any holiday or event, to incorporate bling and glitz in UAE, architecturally stunning Islamic Grand Mosques, ancient well-preserved Roman sites, a labyrinth of mystifying souks, rolling copper sand dunes and mountainous panoramas. And for those seeking a bit more relaxation, float in the therapeutic waters of the Dead Sea, recline on the Omani coastline or indulge in some retail therapy in Dubai.
Steeped in mystery, Jordan is a destination for every type of traveller and cannot fail to impress culture enthusiasts, history buffs, foodies, and spa seekers alike. Our guides are some of the best out there, experts in revealing the country’s secrets and when it comes to the hotspots, they know just the right time of day or viewing spot so that you can have the most exclusive, least touristy experience.
Explore the remote dunes of the barren Wahiba Sands, the soaring Hajar Mountains and the sweeping Omani coastline, all by private mobile tented safari. Discover the old dhow making village of Sur or the vibrant Nizwa cattle market with our expert guides and drivers who can show off their off-road driving skills whilst passing through wadis and along sand ridges.
Each of the seven Emirates has its own distinct culture and history. Wix Squared focuses on Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Ras-al-Khaimah, regions which offer year-round sunshine and a multitude of activities and experiences for couples and families alike. Learn the art of falconry, ride camels into the desert, visit the mega-malls with a personal shopper, relax on white-sand beaches or enjoy a gastronomic adventure at one of the numerous fine dining establishments.
A land of extraordinary beauty and belief, of spirit and story, history and hospitality, Israel is nothing short of entrancing. From hip, happening Tel Aviv to the stunning scenery of Upper Galilee, the ancient, crumbling ruins of Tiberias, the Biblical town of Nazareth to Jerusalem, the City of Gold, there’s plenty here to keep you entertained for a couple of weeks or more. We have some super engaging guides to accompany you throughout your travels or specialists to join you in specific areas.
