Jordan travel guide

Historic Sites · Ruins · Deserts
For such a small country, Jordan boasts a surprising variety of natural landscapes and urban attractions. A trip to Jordan takes visitors on a journey back to biblical times, when sites like the Dead Sea and the ancient yet astonishingly well-preserved city of Petra seemed to be at the heart of world events. Although covered in rocky deserts, Jordan boasts a good network of roads, which makes sightseeing by car an easy way to discover many of the country's top highlights. Begin your tour of Jordan in Amman, the largest urban center and a major political, cultural, and economic hub of this Middle Eastern kingdom.

A vacation in Jordan's Dead Sea Region allows you to relax and reinvigorate as you bathe in the beneficial waters of the salt lake, while also having access to historic sights and natural attractions. The Dead Sea Region is part of the Jordan Rift Valley, a natural depression known for its many interesting rock formations, mineral hot springs, and ancient sites. Besides floating on the water and catching the rays, things to do in the Dead Sea Region include hiking the trails of the nearby nature reserve, exploring the town of Madaba, or visiting what was reportedly the baptism site of Jesus Christ.
