Jordan is an Arab country in Southwest Asia spanning the southern part of the Syrian Desert down to the Gulf of Aqaba. Much of Jordan is covered by desert, particularly the Arabian Desert; however the north-western area, with the Jordan River, is regarded as part of the Fertile Crescent. The capital city of Amman is in the north-west.

Jordan is a unique destination which boasts both modern, vibrant cities and the majestic ruins of bygone civilizations. Highlights include the city of Amman, the ruins at Jerash, the granite cliffs at Wadi Rum and the cleansing mud baths of the Dead Sea.
