Jordan is a Middle Eastern nation unlike its neighbours. Despite being surrounded by countries in conflict, it’s safe and remarkably modern, with a history dating back to biblical times. Stunning sights like Jerash, Kerak Castle and the Amman citadel are dotted across Jordan and their ruins act as windows into the country’s fascinating past.
As one of the driest countries in the world, it’s no surprise that Jordan is home to sweeping deserts and otherworldly landscapes like Wadi Rum. From wandering the world-famous Nabatean city of Petra in the southwest, to taking a dip in the Dead Sea – the world’s lowest point – and tucking into a spicy zarb (Bedoin barbeque), a trip to Jordan is an unforgettable sensory journey.
