With most major sights clustered around the Dead Sea, one week's trip to Jordan is enough to cover the country’s highlights. Spend a day wandering through Amman’s souks before climbing Mount Nebo for biblical views of the surrounding areas. Then drive along the shores of the Dead Sea to Petra, a city carved in stone. Not far from its ruins is the vast expanse of lunar landscape called Wadi Rum, another must-see destination in the country. Crown your journey by drifting in the Dead Sea and kicking back on its shores before it is time to fly back. Check out our two recommend Jordan itineraries lasting 7 to 8 days below.
