The Middle East is a fascinating region, a melting pot of cultural influences, littered with ancient monuments from long lost civilisations. The Egyptians, Romans, Persians, and Babylons are just a few of the great civilisations to have left their mark here.

The magical waters of the Dead Sea, where even the worst swimmer can float in comfort, is a must-do on a trip to Jordan. You’ll be transported back in time, and into the movies, with a visit to the stunning temples of Petra, carved into the pink sandstone cliffs, famously featured in Indiana Jones, and Wadi Rum, the surprisingly beautiful desert wilderness featured in Lawrence of Arabia.

With features including transfers on luxury coaches and knowledgeable guides offering guided excursions, a Travel Escapes escorted tour is the perfect way to explore the region.
