Epic deserts, beautiful canyons, ancient history and the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Need we say more?
For a small country, Jordan really packs in a lot of unforgettable adventures. From floating in the Dead Sea to drinking tea with the Bedouins, going deep into water filled canyons to exploring the land of Lawrence of Arabia, Jordan offers so many diverse experiences that it can be hard to figure out why it isn't one of the biggest tourist destinations in the world.
However, things are changing and with the announcement of Ryanair flights Jordan may no longer be one of the best kept secrets in the Northern Hemisphere.
