About Amman and Jordan

Jordan is a land steeped in history. It has been home to some mankind’s earliest settlements and villages, and relics of many of the world’s great civilizations can still be seen today. As the crossroads of the Middle East, the lands of Jordan and Palestine have served as a strategic nexus connecting Asia, Africa and Europe. Thus, since the dawn of civilization, Jordan’s geography has given it an important role to play as a conduit for trade and communications, connecting east and west, north and south. Jordan continues to play this role today.​


AMMAN "A Modern City Built on the Sands of Time"

Amman, the capital of Jordan, is a fascinating city of contrasts- a unique blend of old and new; deep valleys vs. high hills, old markets vs. new malls, ancient castles vs. rich villas, traditional handicrafts vs. modern art, and an old souk vs. a futuristic modern downtown. It is ideally situated on a hilly area between the desert and the fertile Jordan valley. The city is enriched in its biblical sites and plethora of historical attractions. From the pink stones of Petra to the Roman Amphitheatre in Amman, Jordan unveils its complex history for you to discover.



PETRA “The Rose City”

Petra,one of the New7Wonders of the World, is without a doubt Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. It is a vast unique city, carved into the sheer rock face by the Nabataeans, an industrious Arab people who settled here more than 2000 years ago, turning it into an important junction for the silk, spice and other trade routes that linked China, India and southern Arabia with Egypt, Syria, Greece and Rome.

A maze of monolithic rockscapes rise from the desert floor to height of 1,750m creating a natural challenge for serious mountaineers. Hikers can enjoy the tranquility of the boundless empty spaces and explore the canyons and wate holes to discover 4000-year old rock drawings and the many other spectacular treasures this wilderness holds in store.

One of the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the world, the Jordanian east coast of the Dead Sea has evolved into a major hub of both religious and health & wellness tourism in the region. It is the lowest point on the face of the earth; over 400m (1,312 ft.) below sea level, this vast stretch of water receives many incoming rivers, including River Jordan. Once the waters reach the Dead Sea they are locked and have nowhere to go, so they evaporate leaving behind a dense, rich, cocktail of salts and minerals that supply industry, agriculture and medicine with some of its finest products.
