There is a lot of history in Jordan. Learn about how the Romans lived; get a taste for the regality of the era via the Crusader castles; make sure you visit the desert citadels and put your religion in context at the biblical sites, most notably the one where Jesus was baptized. Also there is the fortress where Herod beheaded John the Baptist. For Jews the mountain top is a great place to see – just imagine Moses there as he looked at the Promised Land in which he was forbidden to enter.
But Jordan is not just for the religious-inclined. Amman is a very cultural diverse Arab-based city that is quite moden and very different from the stereotypical city we imagine from the Middle East.
Jordan is also an adventure country, with a backdrop of natural beauty hailing from its Wadi Rum red desert sands and coral-filled Aqaba Gulf. And then of course there is the Dead Sea and nargileh and more.
Jordan is a great tourist destination for all these reasons but also because Jordanians are some of the friendliest people around and incredibly proud and passionate of their land. They love to show tourists what a beautiful place they live and enjoy showing them around. And of course, seeing a place via the locals is a true, ethnic way to get a real feel of the place.
