The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is a small, accessible, though not particularly cheap, country in which to travel.

The huge Nabatean and Roman archaeological site of Petra really does live up to the hype, and will appeal to people who love rugged, natural beauty and hiking, as well as to history buffs. Lawrence of Arabia described the mountains and orange/pink sands of Wadi Rum as "vast, echoing and God-like"; Jerash is one of the best-preserved Roman cities in the world, and the Dead Sea one of the strangest natural wonders.

The inhabitants of the capital, Amman, claim Hashem restaurant serves the best hummus in the Middle East.
