Listed below are possibly the world’s most expensive destinations in Middle East. As travelling to these places would probably cut down your savings significantly, it’s best if you plan your travel with more care and consideration, including but not limited to purchasing a reliable travel insurance package! Just in case any misfortune befalls you during your trip, you would have the option to cancel or redeem your losses.

1.      Dubai

Dubai is essentially a desert city with superb infrastructure, liberal policies (by regional standards), that became popular for its excellent tourist amenities. It is a city of superlatives: for the fastest, biggest, tallest, largest and highest, Dubai is the destination. It has the largest immigrant population in the world. Not surprisingly, Dubai has ranked among the most expensive cities in the world.

2.      Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is the federal capital and center of government in the United Arab Emirates. It is the largest city of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and one of the most modern cities in the world. With only 420,000 citizens in the entire emirate, each has an average net worth of $17 million, and Abu Dhabi has been described by CNN as “the richest city in the world”. The city features large gardens and parks, green boulevards lining all the streets and roads, sophisticated high-rise buildings, international luxury hotel chains and opulent shopping malls.

3.      Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv is a rapidly growing city in the midst of an exciting transition from medium-sized urban center to bustling international metropolis. It’s the city that many Israelis think of as their New York. While the comparison was once a stretch – and indeed Tel Aviv is still a fraction of New York’s size – Tel Aviv’s booming population, energy, edginess and 24-hour life give the city a cosmopolitan flair comparable to few other cities in this part of the world.

4.      Jerusalem

The City of Gold, as it has come to be known in Hebrew, is a fascinatingly unique place where the first century rubs shoulders with the twenty-first century, each jostling for legitimacy and space, and where picturesque “old” neighborhoods nestle against glistening office towers and high-rise apartments. It is one of those places which have to be seen to be believed. Influx of tourists and religious pilgrims from all over the world has established Jerusalem as one of the most expensive destinations in the Middle East.

5.      Amman

Although not seen as much when in the air over Amman, the capital of Jordan holds many surprises for the visitor. Anything can be found in Amman if one asks. Visit Amman’s Roman Amphitheatre or study in the University of Jordan or stay in a luxurious hotel. Shopping malls are abundant in Jordan. With new construction in Abdali, in a few years the high-end traveler could eat in the most high-end restaurant, study in the American University of Jordan, stay in a five star hotel or shop in massive malls, all a few metres from one another.
