A land of weathered sandstone and reddened dunes, Jordan delights its visitors with warm hospitality, world heritage sites and a strong grasp of tradition and history that has not been compromised by modern influences. In the heart of Jordan’s tourism trail is the ancient Nabatean city of Petra. Aptly nicknamed the ‘Rose City’ for its surrounding pink hued sandstone cliffs, Petra mesmerizes visitors with its architectural and archeological wonders of tombs and temples cut into the surrounding sandstone landscape. The Dead Sea, with its nutrient rich mud claimed to have mystical healing powers, is also the source of many archeological treasures that attract tourists from all over the world. Providing glimpses into ancient history and with links to Biblical times, Jordan is one Middle-Eastern country that is beyond magical.
