  • 1. Jordan in the past and now
  • 2. • Most of Jordan is desert, yet that only heightens the drama of its oases, wildlife reserves and archaeological treasures. This is also one of the most progressive and welcoming of all the Arab states and, right now, one of the most stable. Most Jordanian journeys will include Amman and the capitals souks offer the customary Middle Eastern array, but the single reason is most travellers find themselves in Jordan is Petra. The 2000-year-old Nabataean city is completely sculpted from stone - staircases, stadiums, temples, royal tombs and the former treasury, which provides Jordan with its tourist icon.• The entrance to the city takes you though the Siq, a narrow slit in the sandstone, which effectively blindfolds you to Petras glories until the last jaw-dropping moment. Jordan is one of the traditional homes of the Bedouin, and the encampments of these nomads are a common sight in the countrys deserts. Hop aboard a camel and indulge your Lawrence of Arabia fantasies. Spas are another Jordanian highlight, with deep immersion in the Dead Sea mud a specialty.• Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
