Jordan is a popular destination on its own. Many visits to Jordan also include a trip to Israel because of how connected the historical sites of these two nations happen to be. You’ll find adventures available in the desert wilderness of Wadi Rum, ancient ruins at Amman, and access to wildlife, natural reserves, and relaxing resorts. This allows you to plan a stay in your own preferred way with a visit to Jordan.
One of the most visited sites in Jordan is the ancient city of Petra. This city was carved out of rock, with its entry protected by a thin and winding gorge called the Siq. Nothing really prepares you for what you’ll encounter at Petra due to its sheer size. If you want to see everything that Petra has to offer, it is recommended that you spend at least 4 days there.
Jordan may offer adventures in faith and history, but there is also an emphasis on leisure and wellness that can be found. First-class resorts offer visitors access to natural therapeutic sites so that everyone can relax in their own way. Access to the Dead Sea is also readily available from most locations within Jordan, which is a unique experience because the water is so salty that it is impossible to sink in it.
From the hot springs to the ancient ruins and everything in-between, Jordan offers visitors a chance to find the perfect location to rest and relax. It is a delightful destination to consider that can be enjoyed all year long.
