Middle East Destinations | Jordan

Key Points for Planners

  • Jordan is a treasure trove of archaeological sites and a rich history
  • Jordan’s borders are open to all countries in the region


Jordan is a land as old as history, yet a modern kingdom offering the discerning traveller culture, security, and hospitality. The epic film, Lawrence of Arabia, is what jettisoned this beautiful country into tourism in 1962. SInce then, this destination has set its sights on offering guests a window into its ancient history and culture.

Key Locations

  • Amman
  • Aqaba
  • Petra
  • The Dead Sea
  • The Jordan River
  • The Jordan Trail
  • Wadi Rum
In addition to Lawrence of Arabia, Jordan’s Wadi Rum has been the site for other epic favorites including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, The Martian, and the 2019 live-action remake of Aladdin. Major tourist attractions here include historical sites like the world-famous archeological site of Petra, Mount Nebo, Madaba, numerous medieval mosques and churches,
and the Jordan River, significant in both Judaism and Christianity for being the river the Israelites crossed over to get to the Promised Land. It is written that Jesus and John the Baptist were both baptized here as well. In addition to its incredible history and more recent connection to pop culture, Jordan also offers education and cultural tourism, hiking along the Jordan Trail,
and snorkeling and scuba diving in Aqaba’s coral reefs. Jordan offers unique cultural, historical and religious heritage, deluxe hotels, gracious spas and warm, hospitable people. A peaceful, moderate, and modern Arab country, it is the perfect location for groups interested in history and relaxation.
