Small though it is, the list of attractions in Jordan is a long one. Biblical landscapes compete with convivial towns and historic jewels for your time, yet everything is relatively close by, allowing you to fit a lot into seven days. Embellish your time in this petite country with culinary delights and enriching interactions with Jordanians - hugely welcoming and open hosts. Jordan is without a doubt one of the most fulfilling destinations in the Middle East and only a short haul flight from Europe, making it an ideal target for shorter trips.

Whatever your priority, fill out our online form and our local experts will do the rest.

But while Petra is the jewel in Jordan's crown, that's by no means the only reason to visit. Here's our list of Jordan's other non-Petra experiences, each worth coming to Jordan for in their own right.

Trip Tips - Petra
Jordan
History
Wonders of the world
One of the Middle East's, if not the world's, most impressive archaeological sites, Petra draws visitors by the bucketload. The narrow Siq (the dramatic main entrance to the site), the Treasury and the Monastery are all big draws. But it's a sprawling site which most visitors barely scratch the surface of. How best to make the most of your visit? Here's a few tips from the TravelLocal team.
