Discover Jordan... Land of Wonders
interlacing of unique sites across the land is but a
small reflection of the rich and vast cultural heritage
of the Kingdom... because for 10,000 years, travelers
have marveled the majestic archaeological sites and
natural wonders of hospitable Jordan. Since then,
visitors have continued to be enchanted, mystified, and
captivated by the famous rose-red Nabatean city of
Petra; the Graeco-Roman temples and cities; Crusader and
Umayyad castles; the spectacular desert made famous by
Lawrence of Arabia; innumerable biblical sites
identified with Job, Moses, Elijah, John the Baptist,
and Jesus Christ; the Red Sea; the Dead Sea; and the
capital city of Amman - a fascinating mixture of ancient
and modern contrasts.
And Jordan because...
It offers venues unparalleled anywhere else in the
world: special events and theme parties; a wide
selection of adventures, from 4 x 4 trips through the
desert to climbing, hiking, and camel caravans; diving
in the clear waters of the Red Sea; and "Green Tourism"
through protected attractions and nature reserves.
There is shopping for rugs, antiques, and handicrafts
native to Jordan; a wide choice of 5-star deluxe hotels;
relaxing spas with treatments based on local and
European products, and an array of Arabic restaurants
for a taste of delicious Jordanian specialties, as well
as fine international restaurants with menus that please
