Visit Jordan

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.

A visit to Petra

The ancient city of Petra, (Rock in greek), is a beautiful archeological city in Jordan. It is world renowned for its natural rock shape architecture. In July 2007, Petra was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

The city lies on the slope of Mount Hor, enclosed in a basin amid the towering rock mountains of Arabah. A beautiful stream runs down perennially throughout the mountains. Because of its natural shape and structure it used to act as a fortress in the ancient times as it controlled the commercial trading routes that connected Gaza, Bosra, Persian Gulf and Damascus. One can see magnificent rocks carved out to form monastery, and theater. One can see the shafts, the sandstones, cliffs and other extensive ruins.

The city is truly a red rose carved forever in time. The rock structures and carved monuments lend an air of mystique and elegance to the city which was declared a World Heritage Site in 1985. A traveler, who looks forward to an adventure of timelessness, will definitely fall in love with the rock city. Jordan, of all the places in the world is a rare place that blends with mystique, tradition and hospitality. Petra signifies that beauty is indeed timelessness. If one had to see elegance and beauty personified, the city of Petra would make for the perfect picture. Without a doubt, Petra is a precious jewel in the crown of Jordan’s popular places.

For a wanderer, or a photographer, Petra embodies the ultimate charm. With a number of well equipped resorts and hotels around Petra, one can easily stay here. It is also very well connected by flights and local transportation. For a Petra tourist to enjoy the old world charm, Jordan offers the right blend of hospitality and a rich culture that adds up to a beautiful experience.
