I had been wanting to visit Jordan for a long time because of Jordan’s treasure trove of archaeological sites and spectacular landscapes.
Most visitors that come to Jordan only visit Petra, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the Dead Sea, the Crusader castle Kerak and the dramatic Wadi Rum desert. But Jordan offers more than that. Along the journey, you can also enjoy dramatic nature reserves and hiking wadis (canyon). If I could offer one “off the grid” gem tip for Jordan, it would be to visit at least one slot canyon, for example Wadi Numeira, Wadi Mujib, Wadi Hissa or Wadi Bin Hammad. They are often neglected by the casual tourist, but all of them are well worth visiting.
