Amman

Our Jordan vacation packages also take you to Amman, the country’s capital city. Blessed with rich culture, several ruins, and modern amenities, this destination is for every tourist.

Petra

Another noteworthy attraction to visit during your US trips to Jordan is Petra, a red-stone Nabataean city. Although archeologists only rediscovered it in 1812, the site started existing before the 7th century AD. UNESCO considers it one of the world’s new Seven Wonders.

Dead Sea

If you’ve heard about the Dead Sea before, it’s time to visit this site with religious and cultural significance. It’s a body of milky blue waters bordering Jordan, Israel, and the West Bank. Apart from being the world’s saltiest sea, it’s also the lowest point on the planet.

Get into the Dead Sea and relax as its high salinity helps you float. Although it’s not ideal for swimming, many believe the water body possesses unparalleled healing properties.

Enjoy the sight of sunset as the day comes to an end. Watch the night lights beautifying the skyline of Jerusalem.

As part of our Jordan vacation packages, go to Wadi Rum, a spectacular desert valley. It’s decorated with thousands of rock carvings, archeological sites, and inscriptions. Don’t forget to tour Aqada, the country’s only coastal town.

Due to its strategic location at the crossroads between AsiaAfrica and EuropeJordan is a history buffs paradise with a multitude of ancient relics showcasing different parts of the country’s complex past. It’s immense desert landscapes contrast with its modern, exciting cities, such as the capital, Amman, located in the north of the country and known for its brilliant cultural institutions, ancient ruins and labyrinthine bazaars.

Jordan shares borders with Iraq, Syria, Israel and Palestine, and is considered a safe haven for tourists in a region that has seen varying levels of conflict in recent years. A tour of Jordan is a journey through great civilisations. Here you can walk in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia in the Wadi Rum desert or step back to the time of the Crusades at the derelict ruins desert castles. With biblical sites and Bedouin culture to boot, a Jordan vacation package is sure to open up a world of opportunities for all intrepid travellers. 

 

History of Jordan

Jordan, despite its modest size, has a rich and fascinating history, captivating to all who visit. Ancient empires and kingdoms such as the RomansOttomans and Nabataeans have each left their mark on the country, the latter of which built the majestic pink sandstone city of Petra as its capital around 500BC. The Nabataeans had a rich civilisation with strong trade links to other Arab nations until being absorbed into the Roman Empire in around 106 AD. 

If you travel to Jordan you cannot miss out on the experience of walking through the dusty canyons to come face-to-face with the beautiful Treasury at Petra, a bucket-list favourite and seen in the popular Indian Jones movie, The Last Crusade. Christianity soon spread to region and the country flourished until the Roman Empire split and Jordan became part of the Byzantine Empire.

You can see the vestiges of this era at the incredible Amman Citadel, home to both Roman and Byzantine ruins, a must-see stop on a tour of Jordan. The 7th-century was a pivotal time for the country; Jordan was conquered by Muslims and became part of the Islamic world, whilst it continued to flourish as an important trade centre, awash with travelling merchants and road-side caravanserais.

In the 16th-centuryJordan was absorbed into the powerful Turkish Empire and remained so until Turkey’s defeat in World War I and the Great Arab Revolt of 1916, after which it came under a British mandate. It wasn’t until 1946 that Jordan gained independence and Abdullah was crowned the king of the Hashemite Kingdom.

This era saw many conflicts between Jordan and Israel over the West Bank, such as the Arab-Israeli War of 1948Jordan renounced its claim to the West Bank in 1988 and later signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1994. Today, Jordan still remains a kingdom and a beacon of peace in the Middle East.

Nature in Jordan

A land of mountains, deserts and spring-link oases, Jordan captivates nature lovers with its diverse terrains and untouched natural beauty of its wilderness. The golden coastline of Aqaba, at the northern tip of the Red Sea, is a haven of tropical marine line and palm-lined beaches, a favourite of Jordanian holidaymakers. 

Jordan is home to the lowest point on earthamazing wildlife, such as Arabian wolves, snakes, jackals and deer, and a varied climate. Whilst the desert regions can be scorching, the more northern regions enjoy a Mediterranean climate.

On a Jordan tour, you can hike in the ‘wadis’, explore the numerous nature reserves, the most popular of which is the incredible Dana Biosphere Reserve, and snorkel in the warm waters of the Red Sea. A tour of Jordan is incomplete without taking a dip in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earthIt’s almost impossible to swim in the waters due to the high salt content, so instead, you can float around and enjoy the landscape. The waters are thought to be therapeutic and have healing powers.

Another must-see natural attraction is the immortal desert of Wadi Rum, a protected area in the south of Jordan. Here, unique sandstone mountains, landscapes and historic canyons, complete with ancient rock carvings, are yours to explore. Watching the sunrise from a tent in the middle of Wadi Rum is the ultimate travel experience and sure to take your breath away. 

 

Culture in Jordan

Jordan has long welcomed refugees and immigrants to its lands with warm hospitality, so you can expect a diverse and cosmopolitan culture, with vibrant cities bursting with sights to explore. Arabic is the official language, but you may also find that English is widely spoken by locals as it is taught in schools and used in university education. 

On a vacation package to Jordan, travelling through the country, you’ll notice that it is somewhat more liberal than its neighbours, and has embraced Westernisation in its cities. Despite this, Jordan has continued to retain many of its cultural traditions despite the shadow of modernity. 

Bedouin communities still exist and continue to live nomadic lives and if you have the opportunity to stay in a Bedouin camp in the desert you’ll see first hand the famous Jordanian hospitality; copious amounts of food, tasty coffee and friendly conversation. Without a doubt, this is the best way to get to know the culture of Jordan. 

Even in the streets of Amman is it common for foreigners to be greeted and welcomed by passers-by! Museums in the city showcase the cornerstones history and culture in Jordan and the capital is thought to be one of the Middle East’s most sophisticated cities. At the heart of Jordanian culture is food and the cuisine is vegetarian-friendly with lots of beans, pulses and fresh vegetables and salads, all with oodles of flavour! Don’t forget, Jordan is one of the largest producers of olives in the world, so be sure to take home a bottle of olive oil if you travel to Jordan.
