Jordan is home to a seemingly impossible number of them — from timeworn cities carved from solid, soaring rock faces to the Earth’s lowest point and body of water; from Crusader castles to fertile wetland oases and other rich nature preserves. (And we couldn’t stop ourselves from reading about them, either.)
