Ultimate Guide to Jordan

From an ancient wonder of the world to modern architectural cities, Jordan is a land of fascinating contrasts, travelers will be one minute swerving through desert landscapes that seem to flourish endlessly to the next be floating in stillness in the middle of the Dead Sea.

The friendly local culture and the importance of fine hospitality is entrenched within the Jordanian people, rooted in their history  of tribal backgrounds and Bedouin ancestry.

Here are three of the best places to visit on your next vacation in Jordan.

Top 3 Unforgettable Locations in Jordan 

Petra

Every Jordan list has to begin with the UNESCO world heritage site of Petra, this beautiful city is located in the southern part of Jordan.

Petra has been known to be a half-built and half-carved city of rocks, which is surrounded by stunning mountains that lead into glorious gorges.

Petra was thought to be one of the first sites inhabited by the thriving Arabian Nabatean civilization in the early parts of the 4th century BC. Interestingly this has been a famous backdrop for many Hollywood blockbusters with the most known being Indiana Jones and the last crusade.

Without a doubt this should be the first site on every travelers itinerary when visiting Jordan.

Dead Sea

The Dead Sea carves its way through the heartland of the Middle East, Geographically speaking the Dead Sea acts as a major border that sits in between both Israel and Jordan.

The water in the Dead Sea is extremely salty, and has been estimated to be the second saltiest major body of water in the world. This is one of the main reason as to why no sea creatures exist as the sea is too salty for marine life.

An incredible experience in the Dead Sea is to let yourself float in the water, as you are taken away by the breathtaking mountainous surroundings. In fact using the salty mud of the sea is incredible for a personal skincare routine.

Amman

The capital of Jordan is always an incredible site for visitors as it is has been the birthplace of several great civilizations, which is contrasted today as the city is in modern development.

Amman is always been an incredible recommendation as it is trending to a westernized ambiance, but still maintains its Middle Eastern flair. This is most reflective in the culinary scene of Amman which is brimming with mouth watering food and incredibly hospitable people.
