A compact country with relatively short transfer times and only a five hour flight from the UK, Jordan is an easy country to visit in a short period of time.

There is a selection of hotels that cater for families with large swimming pools and activities for children. The highlight of the country is the city of Petra - most easily recognised from the movie 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade'.

There are many other activities around the country including 4x4 driving in the desert of Wadi Rum and floating in the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth.
