Ancient ruins, stunning views and sandy, rugged terrain as far as the eye can see make Jordan a truly unforgettable holiday destination. Through the ages, countless empires made Jordan its home, seeking control of its profitable trade routes. Now, the arid, golden landscape of this history-filled Middle Eastern nation hides archaeological gems in every corner of its vast territory. None, however, are more impressive than the ancient Nabatean city of Petra, carved out of the cliff faces of a rosy limestone gorge to provide a truly inspiring experience.
This warm rose hue sprawls south towards Wadi Rum, an eerily silent desert of craggy canyons that bounce the sun’s rays while granting breath-taking views.
As an escape from the heat and just a stone’s throw away from the country’s bustling capital, Amman, the Dead Sea appears as a salty oasis of tranquillity, with its health spas and luxury resorts.
