Vast Deserts, Ancient Artistry, Infinity Pools
In these troubled times, it’s good to remember that there are countries in the Middle East with warm, welcoming people and compelling experiences for travelers. Jordan is such a place. It has Petra, the ancient city carved of rose-colored sandstone, but also wetland preserves, eco-lodges, castles and spa resorts. Adventurers can ride camels across the boundless Wadi Rum, then sleep in a Bedouin camp like the one above. Through all of Jordan, its rich and ancient cultures prevail.
