I started the tour in Anman for 2 nights visiting ancient sites, followed by one night in Petra and one night in the Dead Sea. Of all the ancient sites visited on my Middle East trip, Petra takes the cake. I especially enjoyed walking through the Siq. The red sands of Wadi Rum accentuated the desert. The Dead Sea hotel is actually a resort on the grounds of the Dead Sea, which makes it easy to access the waters. The water was warm in mid November. The weather was warmer than I expected, with a bit of humidity.
