Posted on By Blog Admin

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan offers a visual and cultural treat for travelers with its world heritage sites, friendly people and inspiring desert landscapes. Most people visit Jordan to experience the ancient Nabatean city of Petra, a world heritage site. You can walk or ride horseback along the ancient site, and explore the Siq or the treasury of the ancient Nabateans. Like Petra, Mount Nebo is also an ancient site of Christian pilgrimage, from where Moses saw the Promised Land before he died.
Israel’s stunning landscape with the green hills and valleys is one reason why you must visit this place. The other is because of the Holy Land’s scared sites on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount. Thousands of Jews, Christians and Muslims visit Israel every year. When you are in the country, visit the Old City of Israel, the Holocaust Museum of Yad Vashem and the Western Wall.
