Jordan Kingdom of Peace

Jordan, the land of ancient civilization and modern glory, welcomes you and wishes you a pleasant stay
Jordan is situated at the crossroads of the continents and it is easily accessible from all parts of the world. Your stay in Jordan will be stimulating and rewarding. Relive the past amongst the ancient monuments and relicts of the great Greek, Roman and Islamic civilizations.
The Jordan people are friendly, warm and hospitable. You will find yourself amazed by fascinating natural surroundings under bright blue skies. Memories of the beaches of Aqaba and at the ruins of Petra will never to be forgotten.
The cultural heritage is enriched by outdoor activities that can be enjoyed amongst the many attractions of Jordan’s varied natural terrain, including sandy, rocky and basalt volcanic desert, stepplands, highland plateaus, evergreen mountain forests at Ajlun and Dibbin, the tropical Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea, the Dead Sea and the Jordan Valley, the pink and salmon-coloured Nubian sandstones of Petra, the moonscape of Wadi Rum, and several thermal hot springs.
For the visitors from abroad, the splendor of nature and the legacy of mankind are further complemented by several activities that have been devised by the human quest for fun and thrills, such as: camel and four-wheel-drive safaris in the desert; horseback treks along the ancient spice and incense routes, or through the hills of the biblical kingdoms of Ammon, Moab and Edom; hiking through the soaring cliffs and pink and purple mountains of Wadi Rum and Petra; scuba diving and snorkeling amongst the fabulous corals and marine life of the Gulf of Aqaba; riding WWI-vintage stream trains through the desert south of Amman; enjoying monumental banquets, grand and ancient castles; bathing and soaking in the warm, soothing waters of the Dead Sea or several thermal hot springs.
