Hottest Travel Spot: The Middle East!

Who would've guessed it: From Paris and Gaga to Brad and Angelina, the biggest celebs ventured to far-flung Asian and African cities this year

BRAD PITT & ANGELINA JOLIE

First, Jolie's ambassadorship with the United Nations refugee commission took her to Baghdad in July. Then it wasn't long before Pitt was traveling to the Middle East, too, joining his partner in October for her trip to Damascus, Syria. They even returned to the region for a third time, bonding with orphaned children in Jordan. Can't wait to see where they land next in 2010!
