Top Descriptions

Unlike many of its neighbours, Jordan is a safe and inviting kingdom in the heart of the Middle East. Whether you’re here to bathe in the Dead Sea, snorkel in the Gulf of Aqaba, or marvel at the great Nabatean necropolis of , you will be sure to enjoy your time in the country. Sadly though, because of the current political and civil states of many of the surrounding countries, Jordan has seen far fewer tourists in recent years and many businesses are struggling because of this. Backpackers who like to go on multi-country trips are simply unable to move freely through its borders, while tourists are put off visiting mostly because of the negative press in the region. But those travellers that do make it here find a friendly and warm country with a lot to offer in a compact space. – Daniel
