Best Life-Changing Trips: Jordan

Herbert Ypma

Ruins and Renewal in Jordan

Important ruins and religious sites, Dead Sea healing spas, and desert landscapes can all be found in Jordan. And thanks to the country’s compact size, visitors can easily fit all these experiences into one trip. From the eco-chic Evason Ma’In Resort & Spa (next to healing hot springs in use since the time of King Herod), you can explore the pink-hued ruins at Petra, float among the minerals of the Dead Sea, ride a camel through Lawrence of Arabia’s old stomping ground—and even overnight in a bedouin tent.
