Let Us Plan Your Travel to Jordan
Jordan is not only one of the safest countries to travel to in the Middle East, it offers staggering beauty and incredible diversity. From spectacular landscapes to ancient cities, it’s a destination everyone should visit at least once.
The ‘Lost City’ of Petra is on many traveller’s bucket lists, built around the 1st-century BC. After a series of earthquakes it was forgotten, lost to the world until being rediscovered in 1812. To reach it, you’ll pass through the narrow Siq following a path between towering rock walls before laying eyes on the Treasury. Petra’s defining monument, with the massive pillars gradually coming into view, the impression is unlikely to be forgotten.
Wadi Rum is a stunning desert landscape that drew Lawrence of Arabia (T.E. Lawrence) with its red dunes and weathered sandstone. Today, visitors can ride camels on the sandy floor and spend the night in luxury tented camps under a brilliant night’s sky with countless stars. Jordan is renowned as one of the world’s best places for stargazing.
Then there’s the Dead Sea with its famously salty waters one can float in just like a cork while enjoying the nutrient-rich healing properties. Ancient ruins are numerous too, from Crusader castles and Christian mosaics to Roman amphitheatres.
The capital city of Amman is fast becoming a hub for the arts, with the Jaba Amman area especially popular, home to many galleries and a fabulous Bohemian atmosphere. Throughout the country, traditional home-cooked Jordanian cuisine is some of the tastiest in the region.

Where to visit in Jordan
Our travel experts have collated their top recommendations of where to visit in Jordan.
Most travellers to Jordan begin by arriving into the capital city of Amman and then head straight for Petra or one of the other popular destinations, but they’re missing out. It offers a mix of ancient and modern making it worth spending time in. Discover centuries-old ruins like the dramatic Citadel which includes the Roman Temple of Hercules and the 8th-century Umayyad Palace complex. In another hillside, you’ll find a Roman theatre. The Bohemian district of Jabal Amman is a cultural hub with bookshops, art galleries, restaurants, and cafes.
One of the world’s most famous archaeological sites, Petra is a place where Hellenistic architecture blends with ancient Eastern traditions. The stunning ‘Lost City’ was built around the 1st-century BC, after a series of earthquakes it was abandoned, only to be rediscovered in 1812. Carved right into the sandstone cliffs, with dozens of impressive Greco/Roman-style tombs revealing what was once one of the largest and richest kingdoms in the ancient world. To reach it you’ll walk through the Siq, a narrow crack that’s a split in the massive slab of rock, a procession that provides heightened anticipation of what awaits.
Aquaba is the only coastal city in Jordan, popular as a sun-kissed beach holiday resort which offers a splash of Middle Eastern culture and adventure. Located along the Red Sea, many come to enjoy the outstanding diving and snorkeling opportunities, complete with vibrant reefs, colorful fish and shipwrecks like this sunken M42 Duster American Tank. The old town is filled with colorful souqs like the fruit and vegetable market and the spice market with its savory scents. Exploring the winding alleyways will lead you to a stunning mosque.
Also known as the Valley of the Moon, Wadi Rum is a valley that’s cut into the granite rock and sandstone in southern Jordan. A crown jewel in Jordan’s ancient desert, it has a storied history that includes the British officer-turned-author Lawrence of Arabia (T.E. Lawrence), along with spectacular rock formations ancient rock art and one of the world’s most brilliant night skies. With luxury tent camps here, you can even spend the night under the canopy of stars after a day spent exploring on the back of a camel.
The Dead Sea is actually a lake, sitting at nearly 1,400 feet below sea level. Its high salt content, 10 times more than seawater, causes the water to carry your body so that you float like a cork, no matter how much falafel you’ve indulged in. It also has a mineral content with elements like magnesium that’s said to provide healing properties that are especially good for the skin. One of the most popular things to do other than float is to cover up with the nutrient-rich mud, let it dry and then rinse off, a natural purifying mask.

Things to do in Jordan
Discover Ancient Petra
Ancient Petra, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, will literally leave you breathless. You’ll walk through the narrow Siq amidst towering rock walls until suddenly, the grand Treasury with its massive columns comes into view. Carved into the cliffs, the ‘Lost City’ dates back to the 1st-century BC, lost in time after a series of earthquakes, rediscovered in 1812.
See Petra at Night
Petra can also be visited at night by following a candlelit path through the Siq, a surreal experience strolling among the walls toward the Treasury, which is illuminated with thousands of candles after dark. Traditional Bedouin performances are held here at night providing just one more reason to visit at least twice, during the day and after the sun goes down.
Relax in the Dead Sea
While the Dead Sea is a lake, it’s loaded with salt – 10 times more than seawater. The high salt content causes people to float rather than sink – in fact, you can even lay on your back and read a book. It’s also known for its high mineral content with elements like magnesium that are said to be healing for the skin.
Enjoy a Mud Bath
The minerals in the mud along the Dead Sea also contain healing qualities. You can rub it all over yourself, let it dry and then rinse off the sea for a natural mask that results in smooth, baby soft skin. There are also spas that utilize the healing properties of the Dead Sea in indulgent treatments for luxurious pampering.
Go Canyoning in Wadi Mujib
Wadi Mujib, easily reached from the Dead Sea, provides an ideal day trip for canyoning in warm water that starts by rappelling down a waterfall into a fast-flowing river. You’ll plunge down natural waterslides, swim through pools and narrow gorges, one the top adventures to enjoy in Jordan, and one of the best ways to cool off from the heat.
Visit Wadi Rum
This renowned desert valley that was the famous base for British officer-turned-author T.E. Lawrence, better known as Lawrence of Arabia, is filled with magnificent sandstone arches, soaring cliffs and narrow gorges. The home of the Bedouins, inhabited for almost 12,000 years, today visitors enjoy camel safaris and Jeep tours to explore its most impressive sights like the Seven Pillars of Wisdom.
Sleep in a Bedouin Camp
One of the top things to do in Wadi Rum is enjoy an authentic Bedouin experience by camping in luxury tent. Most include traditional dinners with the meal prepared underground, and after dark, your way is lit by candlelight. Far from light pollution, you’ll enjoy one of the world’s best night skies for stargazing, with billions sparkling overhead after dark.
See the Dana Nature Reserve
The Dana Nature Reserve is Jordan’s largest nature reserve, covering over 123 square miles with soaring mountains and Wadis, slicing through the Rift Valley. It’s one of Jordan’s best places for hiking, including the popular trek that travels from the 15th-century stone village of Dana, a farming and arts community overlooking the picturesque valley while providing a glimpse of the local life.
See the Ruins in Jerash
Jerash is a popular day trip from Amman, home to one of the most well-preserved ancient Roman cities in the world, dating back 6,500 years. An important city on the Roman trade route, the dry climate kept it in excellent condition while it laid untouched for centuries. In 1925 excavations began, uncovering water fountains, theatres, arches, temples, columns, plazas and more.
Mount Nebo, an elevated ridge near Madaba, is said to be the spot where Moses saw the Promised Land. Many make a spiritual journey here, with a Byzantium church and active monastery popular destinations on pilgrimages. While it’s an important destination for all faiths, the picturesque views of the Holy land from the top are worth the visit alone.
