This Middle Eastern nation pulsates with Arabic culture at every corner: Whether that be at the ruins of Petra—an inimitable historical site—or navigating the souks and lively streets of the country’s capital, Amman.
Landscapes are beautiful here, especially in the Wadi Rum Desert. This arid bulk of land is full of moon-like terrain and stargazing opportunities—the two attract nature lovers from all corners of the globe. If you’re really looking to delve into local traditions, learn about the Bedouins through their camping programs—if you are keen on doing this but would like a bit more luxury, some have been modified to more of a “glamping” experience.
Don’t forget to visit the Dead Sea, where you can expect—due to its salty, mineral-rich water—to float for hours.
