Why visit Jordan?

Jordan Outline Map

Have you ever imagined yourself living as a Martian? Or moreover, making a grand entrance into a breath-taking city of ruins? If you’ve ever wondered you can witness the milky way on a desert rather than in snowy lands, then your next trip should be to Jordan. Jordan (الْأُرْدُنّ‎) is an Arab country on the East of the ‘Jordan river’ of Western Asia. Unlike other travel destinations, Jordan is very underrated. A trip to Jordan will ensure a different unforgettable experience that involves not only breath-taking landscapes but also learning a lot about history, archaeology, gastronomy, how peacefully religions co-exist as well as their rich traditional culture. Here are a few reasons to visit Jordan

Weather you like it or not: A plus point of this place is the Pleasant dry weather that’ll enable you to explore the country without hesitation. Springtime kicks in earlier on in February and you can travel in and around the country until November. For diving in Aqaba, the best time is September, October and early November, when the water is relatively warm

Lovely locals in beautiful locales. Jordan is a beautiful country with great locales. And it’s culture is best experienced through the extremely hospitable people of Jordan.. They will go an extra mile to ensure that visitors have a good time in their country. It is a must to meet the Bedouin tribes when in Jordan.

A trip apt for all budgets:  One can experience a luxurious stay at the hotels with great views or can opt for economic & comfortable stay while travelling to Jordan. It is pocket-friendly and comparatively diverse in terms of spending.

Foodies Delight: Have you ever craved for a shawarma? Well, here you get to try it with a million variations and fillings. Apart from the well-known hummus and falafels, the Jordan cuisine has other interesting rice & meat based delicacies like Mansaf, Maqloube  etc

Their coffee culture is very intriguing and sensitive as it symbolizes respect.Declining a cup of coffee could mean disrespect to the household.

Historical intervention: This is a land where Moses was buried and Jesus was baptised

You’ll also get to witness the wondrous architectural landmarks like the Roman ruins, interesting museums, the crusader castles, Hippodromes (chariot race amphitheatre), etc.

The Islamic, Christian, Roman as well as Byzantine historical landmarks and structures still stand strong even after all these years due to the clever architecture and physics behind it.

Witness one of the New 7 Wonders of the world– ‘Petra’ the lost city or the Rose city is an experience in itself.  It is said to be preserved since 312 BC and is also defined as one of the precious properties of cultural heritage by UNESCO.

Take a dip in the Red sea and float in the Dead sea: How could I talk about Jordan and not mention the Dead sea, right? It is the lowest point on Earth (420 mts. below sea level). Red sea is great for adventure sports

Still not convinced?Jordan issues tourist visas upon arrival to over 30 countries in the world, saving you the trouble of applying for a Visa prior to the traveling.

Safety question on your mind? Even though it is located close to the geopolitical red zone, Jordan is unaffected by the troubles of the region. Everyone who has travelled to Jordan can vouch for it and it is absolutely safe to travel in and around the country independently, with family or in a group.

The biggest threat you’d experience is dehydration from not drinking enough water is the heat. There is no dress code, and Jordan is fairly liberal in these matters.

Does that now answer the question “Why should you visit Jordan?”

You might’ve wondered what I meant by starting off this article with reference to the “Martian”. Did you know Jordan consists of locations where various Hollywood and Bollywood movies like Martian, Mummy returns, Transformers, Krissh3 etc. were shot? Walking along the sandstone cave paths and camels will definitely make you feel like a part of it!

Need to be convinced more! Let’s go through the Places to see in Jordan

Their detailing and meticulousness in planning a trip is just amazing. But what just takes, not only the cake, but the whole patisserie is their passion for the places and its people which makes the place come alive for you.

The local Jordanian partner was very good and we were extended the warmest hospitality that I have ever come across.

Finally, please go to Jordan. I cannot emphasise enough how utterly heart-warming and breathtakingly beautiful this place is. I will probably need five pages to talk about why everyone must go to Jordan. So, please just do.
