One of the most populous and dynamic countries of the Middle East, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan steeped in history and culture. Its capital Amman is one of the region’s top destinations. With a great location, stunning natural beauty and some of the world’s best historic sights, Amman is a great place to visit.
With over 9,000 years of history, Amman boasts some of the greatest historical sites in the entire Middle East including one of the largest Neolithic settlements to be discovered in the region. A true history buff’s paradise, some of the most popular sites include the Citadel, The Umayyad Palace, the Roman Forum and Theatre, the Grand Husseini Mosque and many others. Amman is also only a three-hour drive to Petra, one of the world’s seven wonders, an hour’s drive to the ancient city of Jerash, and a half-hour drive to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. Amman is also a half hour drive to the site of John the Baptist's settlement at Bethany Beyond the Jordan, where Jesus was baptized. Wadi Rum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its towering and magnificent red rockscapes and dunes is a three-hour drive away from Amman. The city boasts of cafes, restaurants, and bookstores and comes to life in the evening when Ammanis head there to catch up after a day’s work. You can actually experience all the four seasons in this city with the summer and spring being notable highlights when the fields are in beautiful bloom and the rooftop terraces are full.
