Top Ten Most Interesting Arab Countries

darthvadern
Yes, I'm continuing with interesting countries in certain parts of the world lists, and this is surely going to be a fun one! I have so far done this type of list on countries in south america, central asia, europe, latin america, asia, sub-saharan africa and oceania. Now it's time for the arab world, and there are surely a lot of interesting countries there! I'll only allow countries that are member of the arab league, so here's the list!

The Top Ten

1 Egypt Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

Egypt easly takes the number #1 spot! As one of the oldest countries in the arab world with its extremly iconic and interesting history with the nile and pyraminds, Egypt tops the list easly. It's like the hub of the arab world and the most famous one as well, and it surely is the most interesting. It's pretty much impossible to not have heard anything about Egypt, as its history is massive! - darthvadern

2 Iraq Iraq Iraq, officially the Republic of Iraq, is a country in Western Asia. ...read more.

The ancient land of Mesopotamia was located in Iraq for the most part. The sumerian and babylonian empires to be specific, which I think were the most interesting empires in Mesopotamia as well (The assyrian empire was locatedin Iraq as well but more in Syria). The fact that Mesopotamia was located in Iraq shows why this country surely is so high up - darthvadern

3 Lebanon Lebanon Lebanon was established in 1920 and gained its independence in 1943. For a couple of years it has lacked a president; yet, on October 31st, 2016, it got president Michel Aoun . It is known as the Phoenix of the world since it has sunken under the ocean and has been destroyed by wars 7 times . In advance, ...read more.

Lebanon has among the oldest history of the arab countries and were the country where the phoenicians originated from and they are surely interesting. They were quite famous for seafaring and they are the main reason Lebanon is so high up - darthvadern

4 Libya Libya Libya, officially the State of Libya, is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, Egypt to the east, Sudan to the southeast, Chad and Niger to the south, and Algeria and Tunisia to the west.

You know about Italy, right? One of the most interesting European countries in my opinion. Libya is an african country in the maghreb region and an arab country that has actually been a bit influenced by italian culture and it's surely quite fascinating. It's very underrated to be honest - darthvadern

5 Sudan Sudan

The southern brother of Egypt, and shares a very similar history to Egypt in fact. They used to be part of the same country at one point and under an alliance at one point as well, and they have pyramids and stuff as well. I heard somewhere that Sudan has more pyraminds than Egypt, but that the egyptian pyraminds are bigger, which may also be why it's more known. Sudan also used to be the biggest country in Africa when it came to size but since South Sudan gained independence, it has dropped to third place giving Algeria the title instead (D.R Congo is the second biggest) - darthvadern

6 Syria Syria Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a country in Western Asia. Syria has been involved in a civil war since 2011.

Bring back the Syrian Empire!

The assyrian empire in Mesopotamia was mostly located in what is today modern Syria (although a bit in Iraq as well), and is part the reason this country is on the list. However since Mesopotamia was located mostly in Iraq, and due to the fact I find the sumerians and babylonians to be more interesting I put it higher than Syria. Still a very interesting country - darthvadern

7 Morocco Morocco

The most western arab country, and the most berber arab country as well. They actually speak a different dialect of arabic in this country, a very hard one to understand, even native arab speakers have hard understanding this dialect. Morocco has very colourful history and culture, just like the name and flag of the country - darthvadern

8 Mauritania Mauritania Mauritania, officially the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, is a country in the Maghreb region of western North Africa.

Basically the most "saharan" country in the sahara desert and a very interesting arab country overall. While it's unfortuanely one of the few countries in the world where slavery is still practised, it's still a very interesting country with interesting history and places such as the city of Nouadhibou where you can find the largest ship graveyard in the entire world and it certainly looks spooky. There's over three hundreds of ships found there - darthvadern

9 Oman Oman Oman, officially the Sultanate of Oman, is an Arab country in the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula.

Yes definitely, Oman deserves a mention. It's known for being one of the friendliest countries in the arab world and it's one of the most conservative countries in the arab world. Just by looking at the pictures in Oman it's like travelling back in time because the culture and stuff is still the same as it was a few hundreds of years ago, it's not super modern, like the UAE or Qatar for example - darthvadern

10 Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is an Arab state in Western Asia (Middle East) constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula. The official Language is Arabic. The capital city is Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia was the birthplace of Islam which in itself makes it a very interesting and old country overall. There are some very holy and interesting cities here such as Mecca and Medina and it deserves a mention on the list - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 United Arab Emirates United Arab Emirates The United Arab Emirates, sometimes simply called the Emirates or the UAE, is a country located at the southeast end of the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf, bordering Oman to the east and Saudi Arabia to the south, as well as sharing sea borders with Qatar and Iran.
