The Suez Canal connects the Mediterranean and Red Sea and was built by the Suez Canal Company back in 1869. It is one of the great innovations that has lasted into the modern world.

Day 6 - 7: Eilat, Israel

Welcome to Eilat, Isreal's resort town on the Red Sea. Eilat is home to some of the world's most spectacular coral reefs, so diving here is a must. If you're not up for a scuba dive, enjoy a swim in the turquoise waters on the numerous beaches and enjoy sitting back and spotting marine life, like dolphins. On the shore, adventure seekers can hike through spectacular desert scenery, and shoppers can enjoy a myriad of shopping destinations.

Day 8: Petra, Jordan

Travel to the astonishing hidden city of Petra, Jordan, looming like a mirage that melts into the red sandstone hills of the desert.

Day 16 - 17: Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Welcome to Dubai where you will be able to explore some of the most astounding man-made sites in the Northern Hemisphere. Check out The Palm, an island built in the shape indicative of its name, filled with opulent mansions and in close proximity to the Burj Al Arab Hotel. The Burj is a 7 star, unmatched experience built for the ultra wealthy elitists. The most well known building in Dubai is without a doubt the Burj Khalifa, extending 830 metres, seamlessly entering the stratosphere.
