01

PETRA

The Nabatean city of Petra is undoubtedly Jordan's most illustrious historical sight. The 2,000-year-old rock-carved city is surrounded by hundreds of breathtaking structures including soaring temples, elaborate royal tombs, a carved Roman-style theater, burial chambers, and funerary banqueting halls. Other well-preserved relics include baths, staircases, markets, arched gates, and paved streets, in addition to hidden treasures such as the sprawling monastery (Al-Deir), and the High Place of Sacrifice. Petra is in south Jordan, a few miles west of Wadi Musa, about a three-and-a-half-hour drive from Amman.

02

WADI RUM

Between Petra and Aqaba, a haunting, silent landscape of ancient riverbeds and pastel stretches of barren desert, is beautifully shattered by towering sandstone mountains and dramatic cliffs. Wadi Rum, a vast expanse of spectacular desert scenery, is--along with Petra--one of Jordan's most visited attractions. Here, semi-nomadic Bedouins living in goat's hair tents tend their herds of sheep much like their ancestors did thousands of years ago. Throughout Wadi Rum, a rich legacy of rock art depicting hunting scenes and cultic symbols provides a vivid testament to the Thamudic, Safaitic, Nabataean, Greek, and Arabic peoples who passed through or settled in the area. Wadi Rum is also the now mythical place where Lawrence of Arabia carried out his valiant exploits during World War I. Since there are no accommodations in Wadi Rum, the place is usually visited from Petra or Aqaba. This vast desert is a favorite with hiking and mountain-climbing fans

03

DEAD SEA

The Dead Sea, which lies between Israel (and the West Bank) and Jordan, is the lowest point on earth, reaching depths of 13,000 feet (3,900m) below sea level. This enclosed body of water's high salt content makes it impossible for any kind of plant or animal life to survive. For humans, however, the rich accumulation of salt and minerals is highly beneficial, especially for the skin. In addition, the high concentration of salt makes it nearly impossible for even the most inexperienced of swimmers to drown in the sea's waters. The town of Suweimeh offers accommodations for those wishing to spend one or two nights along the sea. There are also numerous plans underway to develop additional towns, including Zara and El Mazra'a, into major tourist resorts. A new coastal highway, linking Jordan to Aqaba, runs the length of the Dead Sea.

04

AQABA - Red Sea

Aqaba

Aqaba, located in southwestern Jordan near the Israeli, Egyptian, and Saudi Arabian borders, is a favorite destination for both Jordanians and foreigners seeking to escape the cold winter weather. Sitting on the Gulf of Aqaba, not far from Egypt, the resort town enjoys balmy weather during the winter months, with temperatures seldom dipping below 70 degrees Fahrenheit (21C). Aqaba has been popular with beach-goers for quite a few years, but it is now attracting divers and snorkelers as well. Underwater sights include over 1,000 species of fish, and countless varieties of fringing and fan corals, sea grasses, sponges, invertebrates, and other forms of marine life.

05

AMMAN

The Citadel, Amman

During its heyday as a Greco-Roman trading post, Amman used to be known as Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love. Few traces of that ancient history remain in modern-day Amman, with the notable exceptions of the Roman Theater, and the Citadel. Much of what constituted the Citadel has suffered under the unkind ravages of time, but travelers can still appreciate the faded glory of the site by visiting the impressive palace that now houses the Jordan Archaeological Museum, and exploring what remains of the famed Temple of Hercules. The Citadel is a few minutes' drive uphill from downtown Amman. Perched upon one of the city's seven hills, with the city of Amman and its Roman Theater spread out below, the Citadel affords a stunning view of Amman's urban sprawl

06

JERASH

Jerash

Dating back to the second century AD, Jerash is a spectacularly well-preserved provincial Roman city that was unearthed as recently as the 1920s. The main ruins, lying west of the Zarqa River, include the colonnaded street, the south and north theaters, the Temple of Zeus, and an oval piazza. Jerash also contains 14 churches with fine mosaics from the Byzantine era. Jerash is north of Amman, about halfway between Irbid and the capital, and is billed as one of the nation's top two attractions--the other being Petra.
