A landlocked Arabic country home to more than 10 million people, Jordan packs a lot into a small space. It boasts a semi-arid climate, dazzling natural wonders, and modern cities like the capital of Amman, whose founding goes back to ancient times.
History and culture lovers will be thrilled to learn that Jordan is home to many well-preserved historical cities and other archeological attractions, including Petra and Jerash. After days of exploring these cities, head to a waterfront resort along the Dead Sea, technically a salt lake and the deepest one in the world at that. For some late-night fun, don’t miss Amman’s flourishing nightlife scene, fueled by the city’s younger residents.
