Jordan is a land steeped in majestic ancient monuments, stunning landscapes, biblical history and religious wars. Bordering Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Israel and the West bank, Jordan has maintained its stability and encouraged tourism amidst political uprisings in the region and warring neighbors and is an extremely safe place to visit.
Home to excellent attractions like Petra which is among the seven wonders of the world, the enchantingly desolate landscape of Wadi Rum, the high salinity Dead Sea area, and well-preserved Roman ruins of Jerash and Umm Qais, Jordan is a must on any traveler’s bucket-list. Jordan is a foodie’s delight with its pan-Arab and Bedouin cuisines, delicacies like baklava, kunafa to feast on and fresh dry fruits being sold cheaply on roadside carts. It is also a country that is slowly shedding religious conservatism, embracing progress and tourism, and filled with welcoming and friendly people.
