About this book

With its stunning Red Sea resorts and Blue Flag beaches, world famous heritage sites, deserts and sophisticated capital, Jordan is an increasingly popular holiday destination. Bringing this fabulous country to life through words, Carole French discusses Jordan's history and culture, eco projects, wildlife and marine life, desert treks, markets and malls.

She takes you through the main cities and regions, from the capital Amman – an exotic mix of old-fashioned bazaars, tiny streets, swish five-star hotels and glitzy new shopping malls – to the UNESCO city of Petra, the hauntingly beautiful Wadi Rum desert, religious sites, castles, diving sites and the healing waters of the Dead Sea. This insightful guide is perfect for anyone planning their first trip to this magnificent country.
