Jordan
As is often the case with travel expectations, there’s so much more to a site than what we can see in the confines of a screen or read in black and white letters on a page. Often the real place is a shock of depth, colors and aromas, and the way...

Dark-haired, dark-eyed, dark-skinned men ride horses up and down the path that leads to Petra‘s Siq, the mile-long entrance to the ancient city. I walk the stretch of the archeological park, clambering up hills and and rocks for better views of...

A couple days after seeing the Pyramids we came to Petra and were completely blown away. The walk through the canyon only builds up the excitement and then the Treasury appears immediately in front of you. The Pyramids might have been one of the...

Peru
Arriving at the gate at 6:30am, I was extremley excited to see and explore this amazing place. I have been planning this trip for over ten years and the moment was finally here! After entering, the entire mountain range and ruins were covered in a...

Machu Pichu, Peru
This month marks the hundred-year-anniversary of the "re-discovery" of this Inca citadel by Hiram Bingham. Machu Picchu deserves its clichés--'place of a lifetime,' 'bucket-list destination'...'mystical'...'amazing'... Sometimes, it's okay...

Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh 471606, India
For such an amazing place, Khajuraho was surprisingly tourist free. We went early to avoid the heat of the day, and found just a handful of devotees walking the temple grounds. Oh, and don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for the kama sutra...

1 Tiantan E Rd, Dongcheng Qu, Beijing Shi, China
This complex of Taoist religious buildings was constructed in the early 15th century under the Yongle Emperor, who also commissioned the Forbidden City, just to the north. The temple's central building is the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests, a...

Simple in concept, excellent in execution, the Brickyard at Mutianyu is a destination in itself, situated about 90 minutes' drive from downtown Beijing in a traditional village. Recovered tile pieces form mosaics that pop out from otherwise...

Dead Sea, Jordan
I had no clue about the Dead Sea until I started planning my trip to Jordan. I got to the Dead Sea and learned that it is the lowest point on Earth and a source of natural salts! What I found fascinating is that nothing can survive in the Dead Sea...

Abu Al Alaa Al Maari, Amman, Jordan
There's more to Jordan's food than falafel and shwarma (though those are pretty great). The national cuisine is classically Arab with plenty of mezze (small plates made for sharing) and kebabs, but with a few Jordanian specialties as well. A zarb...

This community tourism program, based in the small village of Ghor al-Mazra'a in the Dead Sea region, provides a rare opportunity to experience local village life. Tours here (booking in advance is essential) combine cooking, crafts, and even...

Madaba, Jordan
They don't call Madaba the "mosaic city" for nothing. This small, relaxed town's heyday came in the Byzantine era when it prospered and became an important center of Byzantine art. Today, this heritage is everywhere you look, from the historic...

Every other summer, Amman highlights independent music acts from the Arab word during the Al Balad Music Festival. A variety of concerts take place for a week at one of Amman’s most ancient sites: the downtown Odeon Theater, built in the second...

Amman Civil Airport، Al Mataar St 22، Amman, Jordan
Founded in 2010, Carakale is Jordan's first and only family-owned microbrewery. It began as a labor of love for master brewer Yazan Karadsheh, who has grown production from his family’s backyard to a hillside location by the old city of Fuheis. It...

Jabal Al Lweibdeh, Amman, Jordan
Artists have long flocked to Al Lweibdeh, which remains the preferred neighborhood of creative types, even as it admittedly gentrifies. My favorite lunch spot is Joz Hind. There’s no menu; Luca makes his creations from whatever seasonal, locally...
