Steeped in history, Jordan is famed for its archaeological treasures, from the Desert Castles of the north to the Nabataean capital of Petra. South of the capital Amman and beyond the Jordan Valley where John the Baptist lived and preached, lies the Dead Sea, the lowest place on Earth and the deepest salt lake in the world. To the south lies Wadi Rum, Lawrence of Arabia’s dramatic desert valley formed countless thousands of years ago and settled around 10,000 BC. A journey through Jordan’s changing landscape culminates in the port town of Aqaba on the Red Sea, offering exceptional diving amongst the coral reefs. Jordan is truly an awe-inspiring country to explore.

From the top, there is a splendid view westwards into the Jordan Valley.
Hotels and flights
Although much has been written about Petra, nothing really prepares you for this amazing place. It has to be seen to be believed. Often described as the eighth wonder of the ancient world, it is without doubt Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. It is a vast, unique city, carved into the sheer rock face by the Nabataeans, an industrious Arab people who settled here more than 2000 years ago.
Amman, the capital of Jordan, is one of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world; and despite being essentially a product of the 20th century, it still retains its old world charm. In modern, culturally diverse Amman, it isn’t uncommon to see luxury hotels tower over traditional coffee shops where old men gather to play backgammon. Travellers looking to discover old Arabia in Amman will find the souks and bazaars intriguing.
Without doubt, one of the world’s most surreal places, the Jordan Rift Valley is a dramatic, beautiful landscape, which at the Dead Sea, is over 400 metres (1,312 ft.) below sea level. The lowest point on the face of the earth, this vast, stretch of water receives a number of incoming rivers, including the River Jordan and offers excellent hotels for a relaxing stay.
Wadi Rum Camps
The haunting moonscape terrain of Wadi Rum, described by T. E. Lawrence as “vast, echoing and God-like offers a peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. With clear night skies you can appreciate the millions of stars as you relax in your camp.
Aqaba & Red Sea
With its wealth of other attractions, Jordan’s splendid Red Sea resort is often overlooked by modern-day visitors. But apart from being a delightful place for discerning holidaymakers, this is actually a great base from which to explore various places of interest in southern Jordan.
Here you can find hotels and resorts that are located elsewhere in Jordan.
