Jordan is family-friendly as well as fascinating

Most people may assume that the intriguing historical sights of Jordan are best explored alone or as a couple - well I can categorically say they are wrong.

Make no bones about it, the country is fantastic if you are on your own, but to the surprise of many, the Jordan offers family-friendly holiday that is welcoming and fascinating. Throughout the entire duration of the trip the kids were able to play football and other games with the very hospitable local youngsters, which really did make the holiday extra special.

One would think children may not appreciate the stunning architecture of the famous city of Petra or the rugged natural beauty of Wadi Rum - but this was definitely not the case. They were equally in awe of Jordan's charms as I was and the tremendous guides who were on hand really broadened their knowledge - it was the best history lesson they could have hoped for.

Towards the end of our eight-day family holiday we headed to Aqaba, which proved to be one of two major overall highlights. People have compared the coastal region with the Great Barrier Reef in Australia such is the vast array of stunning marine life that exists in the area. The beaches are gorgeous and, unsurprisingly, they were extremely popular with the younger members of our clan.

The second standout moment of our Jordan family holiday came the following day when we visited the Dead Sea. I had been told this particular part of the Middle East - which is the lowest point on Earth - has almost a spiritual feel to it and they were not wrong. It is hard to describe the feeling you get when you jump in the water and instantly start to float around due to the high salt content. I can confirm it was enormous fun and it was a great moment to share as a family - one that I will cherish forever.
