Jordan Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 50%, Jordan comes across as a calmer destination than many of its neighbors, where strife seems the order of the day. As with most of the Middle East, hospitality seems to be an integral part of every Jordanian's DNA, which makes any visit here a truly pleasant experience. For many PlanetHoppers!, Jordan offers everything you could possibly want, ranging from famous historical sites, to a range of outdoor options that will satisfy the most adrenaline-pumping outdoor enthusiast. At the top of any list must be the incomparable ruins of Petra, a city of rose red stone carved directly into the cliff side. Then after you've claimed your Petra stamp, move onto Jordan's other wonders that include the Wadi Rum Nature Reserve, where you can trek through the stunning valley cut directly through sandstone of the surrounding countryside. But don't forget the picturesque Red Sea coast, where you can dive some of the most pristine waters to be found anywhere in the world. Overall, Jordan has a diversity that many larger countries would envy.
