Things to do in Jordan in 2013

Visit Petra | Swim in the Dead Sea | Wadi Rum and the desert

Vast deserts once traversed by Biblical caravans and Lawrence of Arabia; frenzied urban shopping streets with families shopping for seasonal fruits and new threads; ancient, mind-boggling ruins, and an over-arching sense of mystery. Jordan is more than just sand.

In an arid land - areas of speckled shrubs are considered verdant in Jordanian eyes - there is plenty to whet the appetite. Culinarily speaking, Jordan is not a match for its palate-pleasuring neighbour Lebanon, but if it's culture, camels and the superhuman ability to float that you're after, this historical Goliath ticks all the boxes.
