Jordan's huge range of tourist attractions didn't disappoint
For such a relatively small country, Jordan sure does have more than its fair share of amazing world famous landmarks. For people who are enthusiastic about both natural and man-made history, this Middle Eastern country is surely a must-see destination. When I travelled to Jordan, I couldn't make up my mind as to which places I wanted to see the most.
Luckily I had booked a trip that took me around all of the major hotspots such as Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea, as well as to some places that I hadn't really given much thought to. One of these - the Roman town of Jerash - proved to be a highlight for me. Evidence of the Empire is everywhere, with the remains of temples and a hippodrome still clearly visible. Jerash is now so peaceful that it is hard to believe that 25,000 people lived here back in the first and second centuries.
While Jerash took me by surprise somewhat, I knew exactly what to expect when I eventually came to Petra, or at least I thought I did. I had seen the beautiful carvings that form the front of the Treasury building in photos and on TV, but this was scant preparation for the real thing. The first time I clapped eyes on the imposing rock face, I couldn't believe the sheer magnitude of it. The area really is breathtaking and the images I had seen didn't do it justice at all.
Having visited the fascinating region of Wadi Rum and spent a night in a tent in the desert, I was headed for the Dead Sea - something else that I was really looking forward to. Again, I had seen footage of people floating around in the salty waters on the TV, but I was desperate to follow in the footsteps of great historical figures such as King Herod the Great and the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra by jumping in the lake myself.
Jordan's renowned array of tourist attractions really didn't disappoint and it is easy to see why so many people visit the country every year.
