Middle East Travel GuideWhen to visit the Middle East
The Middle East consists mainly of arid to semiarid desert and mountain climates, and touches several bodies of water such as the Mediterranean; the Persian Gulf; and the Red, Black, and Arabian seas. Although seasonality varies by country, the spring and fall are often the best times to go because the weather tends to be mild. Summers can be extremely hot, especially in the desert, while winters can be freezing, particularly in mountainous regions.
