“Outlining the best of the best of hotels, restaurants, places to shop, and entertainment, The Treasures and Pleasures of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Oman, and Yemen is an absolute must for anyone who would consider a vacation in one of these countries.”
–The Midwest Book Review
By Ron and Caryl Krannich, Ph.Ds
They’re surprisingly safe and wealthy havens located in the midst of one of the world’s most troubled regions, the Middle East. Oil-rich desert sheikdoms with savvy trading skills, booming real estate, growing tourism, and large expatriate communities, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Oman are two of the world’s most fascinating countries.
On the other hand, more traditional Yemen offers an exciting travel-shopping adventure unlike any other in the Middle East.
These countries boast first-class tourist and business infrastructures, including some of the world’s finest hotels and resorts. They also are terrific shopping destinations for everything from jewelry and designer apparel to arts, antiques, and handicrafts.
