I would disagree with two things in this quiz. Turkey is in the Middle East and receives more tourists than any other country there, including the UAE and Saudi. And second, the only part of Egypt that's in the Middle East is the Sinai, once you go past that it becomes North Africa which is where the pyramids, Abu Simbel, and the majority of it's tourist attractions are located. The only locations in the Sinai that receive many tourists that I'm aware of are Sharm El Sheik and St Catherine's monastery. So do those two Middle Eastern Egyptian locations really get enough tourists to hold that spot as indicated above?

Also fairly surprised to see Iran here. I thought it's tourism industry was more or less in it's infancy.
