What is the best time to visit the Middle East?

Planning a tour of the Middle East? It’s best to visit in Spring (April and May) or Autumn (October and November), when the weather is warm and dry and there are fewer crowds.

The dates for Ramadan change each year, so be sure to check this before you book your trip.
