The People

Jordan is extremely safe, despite popular belief. It is totally cut off from the unrest in the area. There won’t be any problems for you here. The Jordanian government spends significant money and time making tourists feel comfortable by maintaining strong security and police patrols in tourist hotspots and hotels. The locals are curious, friendly, and welcoming. The only troubling areas are close to the borders with Iraq and Syria. Fortunately, none of the major tourist destinations are close to these boundaries, so you won’t miss anything by staying away.



Petra is one of the world’s seven wonders and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Nabatean city was lost to history for centuries before it was rediscovered in 1812. The biggest draw in this place is the Treasury. Thanks to movies like the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones, the world is aware of its majesty. However, the pictures still don’t do it justice. This structure, carved out of the pink sandstone cliffs, is the largest of Petra’s 500 tombs. Other features include the Great Temple, the Renaissance Tomb, the Nabatean Theatre, etc. Spend a day or two here to enjoy it all.

The Food

The mouthwatering Jordanian cuisine dishes never fail to astound those who try them, thanks to the strong Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influences that permeate everything. The typical baba ghanoush (an eggplant dish), hummus, and meat are among the mezze served as starters. For the main course, you can select among various options, including mansaf, the traditional Jordanian dish comprised of lamb, spices, rice, and fermented yogurt.

Various rock formations, ancient rock sculptures, and temples can be seen throughout the huge reddish-pink Wadi Rum environment. Why not go camping with the wandering Bedouins to experience all these things, plus stargazing in one of the loveliest places on earth?

The History

Jordan has traces of human activity dating back to the Old Stone Age. Because of its location, various nations and empires, including the Istraelites, Persians, Romans, Ottomans, and Crusaders, have traversed this territory. Any history enthusiast will relish exploring this region, from Petra to the Jerash Ruins, Mount Nebo, and more. In fact, it has acquired the moniker “open air museum.”

The Dead Sea


A dip in the famous Dead Sea is a must-do in Jordan. This sea is 418 meters below sea level, making it the lowest spot on Earth. In contrast to the salt-covered rock ledges and desolate red mountain backdrop, it almost glows a bright shade of blue, making for an especially remarkable sight. Its water is supposed to offer therapeutic benefits for the skin because of its mineral content. But the water is too salinated and dense for lap swimming, so floating is the only thing you can do.


We hope we’ve convinced you to see Jordan. Now all you have to do is organize a trip and experience its beauty. Consider us for the best lodging in town if you plan a trip to the Amman area. We will ensure you sleep in serious luxury night after night as you explore the region.
