Jordan is one of the safest countries to visit in the Middle East and to my mind one of the most stunning. And forget that it is in the Middle East.
Aqaba sits at the southern tip of Jordan and is a sort of Jordanian beach town.
Wadi Rum is the stunning desert area in Jordan. Made famous by Lawrence of Arabia it is a jaw-dropping landscape of rich colours and shapes and a must see in Jordan.
Petra is an amazing archaeological city in Jordan. For many Petra is best known for its appearance in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
The extremely salty waters of the Dead Sea lie between Jordan and Israel. It is estimated to be the second saltiest major body of water in the world.
Many people, including me, choose to spend their last night in Jordan on the Dead Sea and get up early to be driven to Amman and the airport.
