Jordan shares borders with Israel, Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

Unlike its neighbours, Jordan has no significant crude oil reserves but is one of the world’s largest producers and exporters of phosphate.

Amman, in the North West, is the capital and offers a choice of nightclubs, theatre, cinemas and restaurants serving European and Arabic dishes. The souk offers a shopping experience with a difference.

The giant amphitheatre a Petra, in the south, is said to be one of the wonders of the Middle Eastern world. The Gulf of Aqaba, with its coral reef, colourful fish and warm waters, offers year round snorkelling.
