Kish Island - Islamic Republic of Iran

Kish is a 91.5-square-kilometre (35.3 sq mi) resort island in the Persian Gulf. It is part of the Hormozgân Province of Iran. Due to its free trade zone status it is touted as a consumer's paradise, with numerous malls, shopping centres, tourist attractions, and resort hotels.

It has an estimated population of 20,000 residents and about 1 million people visit the island annually. Kish Island was ranked among the world’s 10 most beautiful islands by The New York Times in 2010, and is the fourth most visited vacation destination in the Middle East after Dubai, U.A.E, and Sharm el-Sheikh. Foreign nationals wishing to enter Kish Free Zone from legal ports are not required to obtain visas prior to travel. Valid travel permits are stamped for 14 days by airport and Kish port police officials.

Though being a very small island, there are many attractions around the island that make it a tourist-oriented place. One of the spot that draws much visitors is the Greek Ship stranded near to its shores. To this day, it is not clear how the ship got stranded. It is said by the locals that the sailors who boarded the ship tried many unsuccessful attempts to re-float it, but eventually had to abandon it. They burned down the ship while they left and all what is left is the steel structure.

Another attraction is the underground ancient aqueduct also called the 'Underground City' which is partially open for tourists.The underground aqueduct was built around 1000 years ago for transportation and water supply across the different parts of the island. The next attraction are the beautiful beaches that all captivate the eye with their bluish tint and the long shoreline that attracts many tourists during the winter season. The water is so clear that fish can be seen swimming in the sea all year long.

Dubai - United Arab Emirates

Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The emirate is located south of the Persian Gulf on the Arabian Peninsula and has the largest population with the second-largest land territory by area of all the emirates, after Abu Dhabi. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are the only two emirates to have veto power over critical matters of national importance in the country's legislature. Dubai City is located on the emirate's northern coastline.

Today, Dubai City has emerged as a global city and a business hub. Although Dubai's economy was built on the oil industry, the emirate's model of business drives its economy, with the effect that its main revenues are now from tourism, real estate, and financial services, similar to that of Western countries. Dubai has recently attracted world attention through many innovative large construction projects and sports events.

-Dubai has been called the "shopping capital of the Middle East". Dubai alone has more than 70 shopping malls, including the world's largest shopping mall, Dubai Mall.
-Dubai's lure for tourists is based mainly on shopping, but also on its possession of other ancient and modern attractions.
-As of 2007, Dubai was the 8th most visited city of the world. Dubai is expected to accommodate over 15 million tourists by 2015. Dubai is the most populous emirate of the seven emirates of United Arab Emirates.
-It is distinct from other members of the UAE in that a large part of the emirate's revenues are from tourism.

Town of Sale' - Morocco

-Salé from the Berber word asla, meaning "rock" is a city in north-western Morocco, on the right bank of the Bou Regreg river, opposite the national capital Rabat, for which it serves as a commuter town.
-The city's name is sometimes transliterated as Salli or Sallee.
-The film Black Hawk Down was partially filmed in Salé, in particular the wide angle aerial shots with helicopters flying down the coastline.
-The National Route 6 connects it to Fes and Meknes in the east. Its population is approximately 800,000.
-Not much difference than Rabat in terms of surroundings since, these two (Sale' and Rabat) are just next to each other.
