Jordan is in the Middle East, bordering Israel, Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth at 400m below sea level and lies between Israel and Jordan. Amman is the country's capital towards the north. Much of Jordan is desert towards the East. Towards the South is the start of the Red Sea and the town of Aquaba.
In Amman, visit the lively souk and don't overlook the 2nd century AD Roman amphitheater in the centre of the city. Less than an hour's drive to the north is the Graeco-Roman city of Jerash. The Dead Sea is full of minerals and healing properties. Go to Petra for the caves, temples and an insight into Bedouin life.
If you're interested in ancient history, a visit to Jordan is essential. Visitors often claim that of all Middle Eastern countries, Jordan is the most culturally rich and spectacular.
