Close to the bustling capital of Amman lies Jerash, undoubtedly the best preserved Roman site in Jordan, boasting impressive ceremonial gates, amphitheatres and colonnaded avenues.
The origins of Petra go even further back into antiquity but the Rose Red City has aged gracefully and has to be seen to be believed. Your first glimpse of the Treasury as you emerge from the Siq is a memory that will stay with you forever.
Wadi Rum may well be Jordan's best kept secret; huge mountains rise out of the desert sand like surreal cathedrals with wind as their architects.
Aqaba is an historic port city that is now home to the country's luxurious Red Sea resorts and boasts a mild climate and access to excellent dive sites in the Red Sea, perfect for some relaxation in the middle or at the end of your holiday in Jordan. Equally the Dead Sea has the power to rejuvenate with its mineral rich waters and the resorts offer the chance to unwind and experience a dip in the buoyant salt waters.
