What could there possibly be to see and do in the arid and desert landscape of Jordan in the Middle East? Here are 6 reasons NOT to holiday in Jordan.
Rocks & Ruins
Tombs and temples carved in to pink sandstone rocks, Petra is in ruins. By old we mean REALLY old…dating back to 300 BC.
What an ominous name – Dead Sea! Float in its saline water and use its mineral infused black mud to look clean up. Or, jump in to the shower and opt for body wash instead!
Sand, sand, everywhere. Chasms and carvings in the middle of nowhere. The vastness and wilderness of Wadi Rum in Jordan is overwhelmingly intense.
Ancient castles and citadels, amphitheaters and archaeological sites, Jordan offers an endless history lesson. With SO many monuments to see, you won’t have much time to do much else.
Falafel, hummus, shawarma, tabbouleh and kanafeh. Expect to eat find these dishes on your Jordanian food platter. Whatever happened to egg and toast?
Winding souks (street markets) selling everything from spices to souvenirs and modern shopping malls with the choicest brands only mean you spending more money!
Oh My! Who could possibly want to go here, right? Well if you’re still not convinced about not visiting Jordan, here are a few Jordan Holiday Tours you can check out.
