Middle East Destinations
The world region known as the Middle East is made up of 16 countries. Although Arabic is the principal language and Islam the main religion, the Middle East has many ethnic groups, ranging from large groups of Arabs and Turks to small but significant groups of Armenians and Kurds. This region gave light to many world religions, including Christianity, Islam and Judaism. The Middle East is also known as one of the birthplaces of human civilisation.
