Overview for Jordan

Amman is the capital of Jordan and is a city of contrasts. The old and ultra modern rub shoulders as the hip restaurants and art galleries sit next to the traditional coffee shops. As you explore the streets of Amman you will find friendly locals and around every corner is a new sight to behold.

Petra is a breathtaking sight to visit. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1985, the city was carved out of the sheer pink rock face sometime around the 6 BC and was the home of the Nabataean Arabs. There are still some 500 tombs standing along with a Roman style theatre, temples, colonnaded streets and much more.

A trip to Jordan would not be complete without a visit to the Dead Sea. Known for its medicinal healing properties, the Dead Sea is up to 10 times saltier than sea water and is 422 metres below sea level. There are many health spas in the area or you can simply soak up the minerals by floating in the sea or covering yourself in its mud.
