Jordan Vacation, Tours, Travel Packages & Experiences
Jordan is a diverse country made up mainly of arable green land in the north and desert in the south. Attractions. when on a Jordan vacation, are numerous including ancient Roman sites, Crusader Castles, interesting churches, excellent beaches and unique desert landscapes.
Amman, built on seven hills, is a sprawling city. The Roman Amphitheatre and the Citadel are two major attractions. However the majority of real interests lie outside of Amman on trips to Jordan.
What are the top things to see in Jordan? Petra
An important archeological site is Petra, a UNESCO world heritage site. Once inhabited by the Nabateans approximately 2000 years ago, it is reached either on foot or by horse drawn carriage initially through a narrow gorge (the Siq) cut through sheer cliffs. The 2 kilometre/1.25 mile trek is well worth it as the first building one finds coming out of the gorge is the magnificent Treasury. Once inside the “city”, there are so many buildings and sites to see, it takes two full days to do justice to Petra on a Jordan vacation.
South of here is Wadi Rum, a barren, isolated but entirely haunting desert site associated with Lawrence of Arabia. To get around Wadi Rum on Jordan tours, 4WD vehicles are used in order to view the exotic scenery of sand dunes, rocky hills and Bedouin camps.
Further south is Aqaba, Jordan’s resort on the Red Sea, a lively modern centre and excellent dive centre.
In the north is the extensive and fascinating ancient Roman site of Jerash, one of the largest in the Middle East. Also worth visits when travelling to Jordan are the village of Madaba with its 6th Century map of the Holy Land constructed in mosaics, Mount Nebo with its amazing views on a clear day of the Jordan River and Western Israel including the rooftops of Jerusalem and also Kerak with its magnificently situated Crusader castle.
Finally, on a Jordan vacation, a stop at one of the resorts on the Dead Sea will complete a rewarding and enjoyable stay.
