Multi-country guide. Arabia packs quite a mythical punch in the West - say the word 'Arabia' and languorous, rose-heady, magic-carpet images rise up like hookah smoke. And when you're standing on the edge of a limitless duned horizon or wandering lonely ruins or haggling for daggers in a souk, you feel like you're inhabiting that romantic world. But Arabia is a complex and fast-moving society - spend some time with its people to get a true feel for the place.
