Visiting Jordan is the kind of trip you plan around the sights, and return talking about the people. There's no shortage of sights: even in a region full of must-sees, Petra - an entire city carved from reddish sandstone cliffs - is one of the most awe-inspiring archaeological sites in the world. Jordan's desert landscape and strangely familiar names evoke romantic images in the West; here you can literally walk in the footsteps of Jesus ... or Lawrence of Arabia, or Indiana Jones if you prefer. But whether you taste the world-class diving in the Red Sea or smear yourself with healing mud from the Dead Sea, Jordan's most lasting impression always seems to be its warm, welcoming people.
Jordan Family Adventure (DWFA)
The worst part of resort vacations? Trying to find a spot to lay out your blanket on a crowded beach. Solution: Visit Jordan instead! The beach never ends here (okay, technically it’s the Arabian Desert, but still…), and there’s way more to do here besides laying about and catching rays. Grab the kids and gape at the ancient rock-cut city of Petra one day, hike magnificent Wadi Rum the next, then snorkel the coral reefs of Aqaba and float in the Dead Sea a few days later. Good luck doing all that at an all-inclusive!
Highlights: Arrive at the awe-inspiring sight of Petra, camp out under the stars in Wadi Rum, observe many coloured fish while snorkelling in the Red Sea, float in the salty Dead Sea
