For a magnificent 360 degree view of the city, head for Citadel Hill, the oldest inhabited area of the city. You’ll also get a birds eye view of the Roman theatre below. PETRA – Nothing can really prepare you for the spectacular city of Petra. Created by the Nabataeans in the 6th century BC, it was hidden away from the western world for centuries. The amazing “treasury” stands 43m high and 30m wide carved into the rock gorge. Entrance is only gained through a ravine that is almost tunnel-like, so be sure to have lots of memory on your camera here as your first sight will be breathtaking. JERASH – Fine examples of Roman urbanism with hilltop temples, paved streets, public squares, fountains, theatres and city walls complete with towers and gates can be found in Jerash. Impressive well-preserved ruins hidden in sand for centuries before being excavated and restored has made this site one of the best-preserved Roman provincial towns in the world. WADI RUM – Traditionally explored by camel, the desert area of Wadi Rum offers gorgeous shades of pink and majestic rocky canyons. The castle used in the movie ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ still sits the same as it was 50 years ago here. THE DEAD SEA – Offering warm, soothing and super salty waters, the Dead Sea is a must. The incredibly buoyant and mineral rich waters allows you to float effortlessly and is quite an experience. The Dead Sea mud is world-renowned for its therapeutic properties.
