Luxury hotels have played an unexpected part in conflict zones around the Middle East for over a century. Harboring journalists, diplomats and sometimes affluent locals looking for shelter, these places try their best to uphold a normal existence for their patrons, often with chaos raging outside its gilded doors.

Pretty awesome photo story from Erbil - and 10 REASONS why you must visit this emerging hub. How about the biggest city park in the Middle East, a high-end ski resort, legendary clientele, and ancient landmarks?

Yes, you gotta go Erbil-style.

We're an independent media changing the way news is reported
Introduction

We’re doing what BBC, CNN and the rest of the mainstream media can’t. Disrupting the global newsflow with a unique digital media about the Middle East and North Africa.

Your Middle East is a new type of media that is network based, fast-moving, lean, and grassroots – closely connected to events on-the-ground. We're different, dynamic and closer to reality!

By engaging citizen journalists, bloggers, tweeters and combining that with newswires, professional writers and high-profile commentators we provide a much more interesting soup than what a traditional media company can ever produce.

We would like to invite you to join us on our journey towards bringing the Middle East closer to the rest of the world. It is our great hope that you will find Your Middle East useful, interesting and important.
