Jordan's only coastal and port city, Aqaba offers a wide range of water-related activities offshore to accompany its mix of historic buildings back on land.
Wadi Rum Protected Area and Horseback Riding Tours are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to South Beach and Sharif Hussein Bin Ali. There's much more to do: get outside with Outdoor Activities, view the masterpieces at Arts of Sham Countries Art Gallery, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and explore the historical opulence of Aqaba Castle.
