Things to do while in Jordan

Jordan is a fascinating country filled with ancient history, vibrant culture, and natural wonders. One of the most popular attractions is Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Petra is a city carved into the rock, with stunning structures such as the Treasury and the Monastery. The site is vast, and it's best explored over a couple of days to fully appreciate its beauty. Another must-visit site is the Dead Sea, which is located at the lowest point on Earth. The water is rich in minerals and believed to have therapeutic properties. Visitors can float effortlessly in the water, cover themselves in the famous Dead Sea mud, and relax in the many resorts and spas in the area.

For those interested in adventure, the Wadi Rum desert is a must-see. The desert has been used as a filming location for many movies, including Lawrence of Arabia, and it's easy to see why. The vast and stunning landscape of red sand and rock formations is best explored on a guided tour, either on foot or by jeep. Camping overnight in Bedouin-style tents and stargazing is also a popular activity in Wadi Rum. Jordan is also home to some of the most beautiful hiking trails in the world, including the Jordan Trail, which stretches over 600 km from the north to the south of the country.

Jordan is also known for its delicious food, which is influenced by its neighbors, including Syria and Lebanon. Some must-try dishes include Mansaf, a traditional Bedouin dish made of lamb cooked in yogurt, and Falafel, a popular street food made of chickpeas and spices. Visitors can also enjoy a cup of sweet tea and a shisha in a traditional café, while listening to live music and taking in the lively atmosphere.

In conclusion, Jordan is a destination that offers a unique blend of history, culture, adventure, and natural wonders. With so much to see and do, it's no wonder why it's becoming an increasingly popular travel destination.
