Jordan is a land that typifies the synergy of old and new, a country that for centuries was situated on the crossroads of the greatest civilisations in history. This small Arab Kingdom holds within its borders sites of antiquity that rank amongst the most exceptional in the world; the unique rose-red city of Petra; the outstanding remains of Jerash; considered as one of the most magnificent of Roman provincial cities, the remarkable vestiges of Umayyad palaces built deep in the desert, and the incredibly scenic Wadi Rum, which is eternally associated with Lawrence of Arabia.
Today Jordan embraces all that is modern whilst holding on to a heritage and traditions millennia old. This amazing contrast is immediately visible to any visitor. Home to some of the friendliest people on Earth, every visitor is a guest of honour and is treated as such, in a very natural and unassuming way. Jordan also has a proven record of being one of the safest countries in the world.
Yet this land is not only rich in history, The amazing diversity and contrast of Jordan is exemplified by its deserts and forests, canyons and mountains, even by its two seas; the first bursting with life like no other, and the second with none at all, yet you’ll soon discover that Jordan is about much more than the sum of its parts.
