A former minister of tourism for Jordan once described the country as a “quiet house in a noisy neighbourhood”.
While the events in certain countries in the Middle East have been very much in the news recently, the beautiful Kingdom of Jordan remains calm, welcoming, and open to visitors. Not only does Jordan remain safe to visit, it could be argued that now – when visitor numbers are down – is THE time to seize the moment and discover one of the most beautiful and historically fascinating countries in Arabia.
The ‘rose-red’ ancient city of Petra never fails to awe the visitor, nor will the experience of travelling off-road through the stunning red desert of Wadi Rum or floating on the saline waters of the Dead Sea disappoint. Discovering the great Roman city of Jerash (where the emperor Hadrian once trod) is another highlight, as is walking along the walls of the great Crusader castle of Kerak. Other highly memorable experiences include walking through Jordan’s national parks and tasting some of the delicious local delicacies in Amman.
Jordan can be a perfect destination for an exotic short break, or for a one or two week holiday. The ideal mix of adventure, comfort and culture make family holidays in Jordan particularly successful.
