Dispatches coming out of the Middle East report non-stop bombings, oppressed women and unimaginable oil wealth. But, of course, there’s much more to the region, and Jordan is a prime example.

Tucked at the center of Egypt, Israel, Syria, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, the small nation is chockablock with paradisiacal escapes, spiritual landmarks, archaeological wonders, even pop-culture destinations (remember the desert mountain horse chase scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade?).

Definitely a destination to put on your “Must List,” we’ve put together a guide for where to go and what to do. Check out for more info.
