Then there’s the Jordan desert. The Nabataean kingdom among the dunes – home to crusader castle. The desert of Lawrence of Arabia and white-robed shepherds leading their sheep across the desert. Travel across the lunar landscape of Wadi Rum on a 4 X 4 safari, float in the Dead Sea, explore palm-fringed wadis and wander old Roman roads to the ancient city of Petra.

* The weather in Jordan can get quite extreme. Overall, it tends to be hot during the day and cold at night (in desert areas, expect it to be extremely hot during the day and freezing at night). Yet during winter it can get bitterly cold, with snowfall occurring in some parts of the country.
* Travelling during the summer months (June, July and August) can be challenging for those not accustomed to the heat, so visiting Jordan during spring and autumn is recommended for those who wish to escape the hotter temperatures.
