Jordan

Middle East

Overview

Jordan is a truly unique and unmatched blend of the old and the new, the natural and the man made, the authentic and the modern.  With about 1,000 or more things to do in Amman, Aqaba, Madaba, the Dead Sea and what seems to be an infinite list of other locations, Jordan is definitely a place you need to visit at least once or twice in your lifetime.

Camping amidst the splendour of Wadi Rum or Dana Reserve, trekking the ancient caravan trails from the highlands of Moab and Edom, snorkelling in the Red Sea, hiking the wooded hills of biblical Gilead, or floating effortlessly in the Dead Sea are just a few examples of the adventures awaiting you when you visit this unique tourist destination.
