Near Eastern
Cities Offer
Tourist Sights
Jerusalem, Pyramids,
Suez Canal Included
As Main Attractions
AljANY people are now including,
in their European tours, trips
to the NeareEast.
This section of the world, in-
cluding the countries of Egypt,
Israel, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria,
Turkey and Iraq, is easily acces-
sible by either plane or ship.
The main tourist interest cen-
ters itself in the city of Jerusalem,
home of three of the world's great
ancient cultures. At present, the
city is split by the Israeli-Jordan
border, and tourists see each half
Other tourist attractions in Is-
rael are the cities of Haifa and
Tel Aviv; the latter being known
as one of the world's most modern
Egypt, its ancient pyramids, the
Sues Canal, and the city of Cairo
probably offers more tourist at-
tractions than the other Arabian
countries. The northward-flowing
Nile, with its ancient history dat-
ing back to the days of Cleopatra,
is also a strong tourist attraction.
ELSEWHERE in Arabian coun-
tries, one can see the world's
largest oil-producing center and
also the world's saltiest sea-the
Dead Sea.
Because the climate is generally
warmer than ours, a good travel
wardrobe would include mostly
light-weight fabric materials. The
tourist should also take a good
supply of personal items such as
soap and toothpaste with him.
An average round-trip by plane
from -New York lasting approxi-
mately. three weeks, costs about
$1,400, tourist class and $1,700
first class. This price includes
transportation, hotel facilities,
three meals a day and tips.
Because the Arabic countries do
not grant entry to anyone holding
in their passport an Israeli visa,
anyone wishing to visit the coun-
tries of the Arab League and also
Israel, should get their Israeli visa
put on a sheet separate from
their passport.

O N THE assumption that many
travelers like to see their own
country before they see the rest
of the world, SITA Tours are of-
