The Kingdom of Jordan has been an important trading point for thousands of years, so is well practised in welcoming visitors, with a tradition of hospitality that is very much prominent to this day. Ancient sites like: Petra, the city carved into the rock face; Jerash, an amazingly well preserved Roman city; the Crusader Castles in Shoubak and Ajloun; the Wadi Rum desert, full of mountains and hills that inspired T. E. Lawrence to fight so hard for the region; and Umm el-Jimal, the so-called 'Black Gem of the Desert', to name just a few. Among the significant religious sites in Jordan can be found the Jordan River, where Jesus was baptised by John the Baptist, and Mount Nebo, said to be where Moses went to view the promised land before his death. The Dead Sea, on the border west of Amman, is the lowest point on earth and has such a high concentration of salt in its water that swimming is more like floating, is a popular attraction, with beaches, resorts, water parks and spas dotted up and down its shore.
The City of Amman - Jordan's capital city is fast becoming one of the Arab World's premier hotspots for nightlife, along with Dubai, Sharm el Sheik and Beirut. An extremely liberal and westernised city that's very popular with expats and students, as alcohol is widely available in restaurants, supermarkets and the many bars and pubs across the city. However, the other side of the town, the chaotic heart of the city found downtown, is watched over by the majestic Citadel. Peppered with Roman ruins, museums and the main concentration of mosques, souqs and traditional coffeehouses, it shows there is more to Amman than McDonalds and TGI Fridays.
The Gulf of Aqaba - Known for its luxurious beach resorts and hotels, and visitors searching for the best in snorkelling and diving along the amazing coral reefs, as well as windsurfing, sunbathing and the archetypical sun and sand vacation. More adventurous travellers also like to venture into the village of Aqaba for a more authentic coffeehouse experience or brave the nearby Turkish Baths, that date from 306 AD.
