Watch out for th­ese highly rec­om­mended 6 things/ places that one can­not miss out when in Jor­dan.

The Dead Sea

Jor­dan's Dead Sea re­mains one of the coun­try’s top at­trac­tions for its wa­ter qual­ity, cli­mate and his­tor­i­cal and spir­i­tual sig­nif­i­cance.

Con­sid­ered the world's largest out­door nat­u­ral spa, the Dead Sea lets visi­tors lie back and float in sea­wa­ter rich in min­er­als and vi­ta­mins.

Wadi Rum

The semi desert re­gion in the south of Jor­dan, Wadi Rum is also known as the Val­ley of the Moon.

With its rose sand­stone moun­tains, canyons and dunes that of­fer trekking and climb­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties, Wadi Rum can be ex­plored by jeep, camel or horse or hot air bal­loon.

The best time of the year to visit Wadi Rum is either in early spring (March/April) or in late au­tumn (Oc­to­ber/Novem­ber).

Jor­da­nian food

The spices used in the Jor­da­nian palate have been traded through this re­gion for hun­dreds of years, such as the na­tional dish of Jor­dan, the mansaf, made of lamb cooked in fer­mented dried yo­gurt called jameed and served with rice or bul­gur.

Desserts in­clude kanafeh with a but­tery sweet­ness and the world- fa­mous baklava.

Snorkelling

Jor­dan is of­ten seen as a coun­try of desert and moun­tain but Aqaba’s wa­ters have abun­dant ma­rine life: the Gulf of Aqaba is home to hun­dreds of species of coral, fish and aquatic an­i­mals.

For snorkelling fans or begin­ners, Aqaba of­fers easy ac­cess to dive spots and great op­por­tu­ni­ties for un­der­wa­ter pho­tog­ra­phy. READ MORE
