Thinking about going backpacking to Jordan? Good decision. Petra is undoubtly the highlight of Jordan but there is a lot more to this country than this. A visit to the Dead Sea is also recommended whilst riding a camel in the land made famous by Laurence of Arabia is a fun trip. The capital - Amman is a contract of old and new and its a great place to get lost and see new things. Away from the main sights you could travel overland on one of our holidays and see the desert or join a local homestay staying in a remote oasis.
