Politics aside, the middle east is a great region, they have a high standard of life in places like Bahrain, Qatar and Dubai, this is why they're now becoming tourist hotspots for people around the world. Some parts of the ME like Bahrain and Abu Dhabi are amazingly clean and tidy, the hotels were spotless, the streets are free of litter, and public places are immensely clean too. Would dearly love to visit Dubai anytime.
The best experience for me was the food/cousine, those chargrilled kebabs,Pilau rice and fresh salad, yum yum!!
