Jordan is a small country with a fascinating history, beautiful scenery and vibrant culture. Numerous remarkable civilizations have made Jordan their home. Moses saw the promised land from Jordan, and later John the Baptist made this area his home. The Nabateans built their capital at Petra - the rose red city carved into sheer rock face in a hidden canyon - while the Romans built the Decapolis cities of Jerash, Umm Qais and Philadelphia (the modern day Amman). During the crusades of the middle ages great castles were built on strategic hills while during the Arab Revolt in 1917-18 Lawrence of Arabia was based here, contributing to the downfall of the Great Ottoman Empire.
Today Jordan is a peaceful country with a tremendous cultural legacy. Add to this the stunning landscapes, unique flora and fauna and the tremendous hospitality of the modern day Jordanians, and you have a brilliant destination for a holiday.
If you are interested in history, Petra and Jerash are must see sights. If you want some adventure go horse riding, walking or taking a jeep safari. For nature and wildlife, the national parks at Shawmari, Dana and Wadi Rum are home to the rare Arabian oryx, ostriches, gazelles, and many bird species. For relaxation, the salty waters of the Dead Sea are home to several spa resorts while the coral reefs of the Red Sea are easily accessible from Aqaba. The traditional cultures of the desert tribes give this Middle Eastern country a sense of the exotic.
