Jerash is one of the best kept secrets of Jordan travel. Just an hour from Amman, Jerash is one of the largest and best preserved Roman sites. To this day, its paved and colonnaded streets, hilltop temples and impressive theatres remain in exceptional condition.
From here journey south along the scenic King's Highway, visit the mosaics of Madaba and the impressive crusader castle of Karak. Spend time walking in the beautiful Dana Nature Reserve or, if the anticipation is too much, continue south to Petra. Although much has been written about Petra, nothing really prepares you for its size and beauty until you see it for yourself.
Jordan holidays are perfectly completed by exploring the desert of Wadi rum and the Seven Pillars, relaxing in one of the beach resorts on the Red Sea, or simply luxuriating at the Dead Sea and being pampered with soothing mudpacks and spa treatments.
