Jordanmay be a relatively young state, but it is one that contains the hallmarks of many civilisations. From the ancient kingdoms of Moab, Gilead and Edom to Petra, the epicentre of the Nabatean dynasty, Jordan has been home to a vast array of cultures through its history. Also formally part of the Roman and Ottoman empires, the country gained
independence in 1946 and today is among the most liberal nations in the Arab world.
This history serves as one of Jordan’s major draws for tourists, with no fewer than five World Heritage Sites representing the cultural diversity enshrined in the country’s past.
Indeed, Petra has been named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, while the Wadi Rum represents one of many inspiring desert landscapes that caused Lawrence of Arabia to fall in love with this region.
Asides these monuments and terrains, Jordan also has a tradition of welcoming visitors, from camel trading caravans to the modern-day business and leisure traveller.
This combination of history, natural wonder and hospitality present a unique and enticing tourism offering, and one which has seen increasing numbers of visitors explore the country in recent years.
Steeped in history, spectacular desert and a growing array of active outdoor pursuits, Jordan’s tourism offering is both diverse and welcoming
