Jordan is one of the best destinations in the Middle East. It has managed to avoid much of the conflict of the surrounding nations, and is best known for the ancient ruins of Petra, as well as the Wadi Rum desert preserve. The capital city of Amman is rich with culture and cuisine, while Beouin nomads roam the countryside, very much unchanged by modern technology.
