Travel to Jordan

  • Flag
Bible stories, lost cities, Lawrence of Arabia ... Jordan is associated with many romantic legends. It is a country that should be overflowing with tourists, however, the Middle East conflicts have kept the masses away. But do not be fooled: Jordan is usually a quiet place. More than that, is one of the most welcoming and hospitable, and even so disturbing that machismo reigns that breathes throughout the region. What other country can the traveler to leave their belongings on the street for hours and hope that is still going to find when he returns? What other country totally unknown people invite tourists to their home, without this meaning that they own a carpet business? But Jordan is not only the friendly cup of tea with the locals, is also the scene of two of the most spectacular places in the Middle East. Petra, the ancient city of the Nabateans, flooded with visitors, is one of the world's most captivating ruins. For a slightly more contemplative experience, you must visit the desert landscape of Wadi Rum, which fascinated Lawrence of Arabia and has pushed more than a typical visitor to slip into the Palestinian scarf (kaffiyeh).

In Jordan you can visit cities like Amman, Aqaba, Azraq or Madaba
Other user descriptions
Jordan (الأردن Al-'Urdunn), officially the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (المملكة الأردنية الهاشمية Mamlaka Al-al-al-Hāshimiyya Urdunniyya), called Transjordan until 1950 is a country of Asia situated in the Middle East. Bordered on the north by Syria, Iraq to the northeast, east and south with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, on the southwest by the Red Sea (Gulf of Aqaba) and the west by Israel and the West Bank. The land later became Jordan is part of the historic region of the Fertile Crescent. Its history began around 2000 BC. BC, when Semitic Amorites settled around the Jordan River in the area called Canaan. Subsequent invaders and settlers included Hittites, Egyptians, Israelites, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Nabateans, Romans, Arab Muslims, Christian Crusaders, Mamelukes and Ottomans. Approximately in 312 a. BC, the Nabataeans in Petra fled, escaping the Seleucid kings. They enjoyed relative independence, thanks to the decline of the Seleucid monarchy, why Petra became an important stop for caravans. At the time of Pompey the Great, in Jordan Nabataean autonomy was threatened, and finally, in 105. BC, the Romans annexed much of modern Jordan to his empire, under the name of Stony Arabia, with Petra as its capital. The province would try to rebel in the third century, without success.
