Travellers who take a trip to Jordan will find plenty of historic sights and amazing landscapes, one journalist has noted.
Writing for the Yorkshire Evening Post, Rod McPhee noted that one of Jordan's main attractions - Petra - is the "ultimate oasis of history".
Talking about his trip to Petra and The Treasury - one of its most famous landmarks - he commented: "No superlative could do justice to the spectacle which greets you."
After walking through the passageway carved into the rock to reach the ancient city, Mr McPhee explained that "your eyes readjust and the extremes of light and shade are replaced by a subtle kaleidoscope of golds, muted reds, pinks and browns".
The Roman city of Jerash is another location that travellers should visit, he added, with its temples, ancient streets, arches and piazzas.
Anyone who wants to see something extra on a visit to Jerash should consider heading to Jordan in July, because this is when the city holds its annual festival.
Folklore dances by locals, concerts and plays are among the shows on offer during this time, according to the Jordan tourism board.
