Travels in Arabia Deserta (1888) is a travel book by Charles Montagu Doughty (1843–1926), an English poet, writer, and traveller. Doughty had travelled in the Middle East and spent some time living with the Bedouin during the 1870s. Rory Stewart describes the book as "a unique chronicle of a piece of history that has been lost".[1]

An abridged version was published in 1908, with an introduction by T. E. Lawrence.[2]
