Summer may almost be over, but there's still time for a final quick getaway, and those looking to travel without going through the hassle of getting a visa need look no further than the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.The Al-Abdali area is packed with towers and hotels intermingled with several historical sites that can give the visitor a taste of Jordan's cultural riches.Make sure to visit the Amman Citadel, situated on one of the city's hilltops. One can, for instance, spend a comfortable and relaxing night at one of Amman's many well-appointed hotels, such as Le Meridien Amman, before embarking the next day on trip north to Ajloun Castle.A trip planned for the summer months is likely to coincide with the cultural festival held annually in Jerash, not far from Ajloun Castle.After a few hours visiting these sites – you may be ready for the pampering you are about to enjoy at one of the resorts along the Dead Sea.The port city lies just across from occupied Palestinian land, and the discerning traveler can even spot Egypt in the distance.Packed with ancient sites, spectacular scenery, comfortable accommodation and a warm welcome from the locals, Jordan contains many unexpected pleasures, and – given its proximity – Lebanese travelers needn't think twice about exploring this regional gem.
