Jordan Travel Tips

From ruined Roman cities and Crusade-era castles to Biblical landmarks, Jordan is a country with a riveting history. Jordan is home to many beautiful sights like the red, color-shifting sands of Wadi Rum in the desert, the practically royal blue waters of the Gulf of Aqaba, and the kaleidoscopic coral reefs of the Red Sea. Follow in the footsteps of ancient merchants to Petra on a voyage of discovery and intrigue. Journey through the Siq gorge between 80-meter-high cliffs, which leads into the city. Then come face to face with the mighty Al-Khazneh, (The Treasury), a 141-foot-high king’s tomb.

Visit the modern, fast-growing capital of Amman is built out of white stone on nineteen hills, and is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Explore the old souk and Citadel Hill, home to the remains of the Roman Temple of Hercules. And the huge eighth-century Umayyad Palace, a complex of former royal buildings. Learn the history behind Amman’s 6,000-seater Roman forum and theatre, which is carved into the hillside and still used for events.
