One of Jordan’s more contemporary cities, Amman is a frenetic capital bursting with energy. Visit the citadel – one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited places with sites that still remain unexcavated, and the breathtaking 1900-yearold Amphitheatre. At the Dead Sea, cover each other in the renowned healing properties of the mineral-rich mud and effortlessly float on the water’s surface at the lowest point on earth. Visit Jerash, a city once buried underground, thus preserving much of its ancient architecture. This ancient walled city was once the administrative, commercial, civic and religious centre of the region.
Carved into the rose-coloured sandstone rock face over 2000 years ago, the imposing façades Oval Place, Petra Salt formations at Dead Sea of Petra’s famous Monastery and Treasury are Jordan’s most remarkable sight. Their grand columns and cornices stretch magnificently skywards and remain as awe-inspiring today as when re-discovered 200 years ago.
Absorb the venerated holy site of Mount Nebo, following the biblical route Moses was prohibited to take by the King of Edom. And, after engaging in the ancient world, travel south to the Red Sea resort of Aqaba, diving into azure seas and absorbing a marine playground, dwelling place of dazzling coral reefs. Follow in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia to the windswept hills of Wadi Rum, one of the most exhilarating and profound desert landscapes in the world. Breathe in all the chronicles of its beguiling history as a sparkling moon and a clear celestial sphere take force in Jordan’s warm night air, swaddling you in Arabian dreams.
