Located strategically at the crossroads of Asia, Africa and Europe, Jordan is a country straight out of the pages of history. Jordan’s tryst with history began in the Palaeolithic age, the relics of which can still be found in the present day. From museums, to ancient ruins, to classical cities, there’s never a dull moment. Our Jordan tour packages help you experience Jordan like never before.
The kingdom of Jordan was named after the Jordan River, to whose east this country lies. Jordan is a country where you can find a confluence of Arab and European cultures co-existing, giving the country its unique look and feel. Right from the Classical era, to the Islamic era, to the current Modern era, Jordan has thrived through it all. The marks of history can be seen in the architecture of Jordan and in the streets of its capital Amman.
If you do happen to make your way to Jordan, there’s a lot of interesting things to do that’ll keep you occupied. The ancient rock city of Petra is a must visit, as is the Ajloun castle and the Temple of Artemis. The Wadi Rum desert is also a thing of beauty. The crevice riddled cliffs or the ever evolving light will take your breath away.
Talking about a place is incomplete without a mention of food. The food in Jordan is brimming with middle eastern spices and flavours. If you want to get an authentic feel of the place, we suggest trying the local cuisine. Don’t forget to try Mansaf, the national dish of Jordan. It’s a preparation of lamb cooked in the sauce of fermented yogurt served with rice or bulgur. A definite must-try.
