Are they safe places?
Are they cheap?
What about the culture?

I am asking it in a nutshell how was it for anyone who have been in these places?
I visited Jordan, safer than most of USA. Hotels are cheap but in general not as cheap as I thought. People are the most friendly I have ever known.

I knew two guys from Jordan, they were very nice. Seems like a nice country, altho not sure I would visit considering who Jordan's neighbors are

How about Maldives?

Why would the neighbours matter? Do people stop visiting the US because of Mexico?

Jordan is very safe.

I have no fear of traveling to Arab countries, but those 5 calls to prayer every day, blasted from loud speakers, that stops me from going there, as I'm very noise sensitive!

First call to prayer can be as early as 4:30am, and to be jolted awake at that hour???

I spent two years living next door to a mosque. Better than an alarm clock....LOL. I didn't have to worry about the electricity being off or forgetting to wind the clock.

It doesn't wake you up unless you are very close to a mosque.
