Holiday in Jordan

Jordan is an Arab kingdom in the Middle East. Jordan borders Saudi Arabia to the south and east, Iraq to the north-east, Syria to the north and Israel to the west, sharing control of the Dead Sea with the Israel.

Jordan is part of a region considered to be “the cradle of civilization”, the Levant region of the Fertile Crescent. Major cities include the capital Amman, Irbid, Jerash and Zarqa, in the northwest and Madaba, Karak and Aqaba in the southwest.

In 2010, there were 8 million visitors to Jordan visiting everything from world-class historical and cultural sites like Petra and Jerash to modern entertainment in urban areas like Amman.

The beach holiday hotspots of Aqaba and the Dead Sea have international 4 and 5 star resorts from which you can visit a nature reserve like the famous Dana Nature Reserve. Religious tourists visit Mt. Nebo, the Baptist Site, and the mosaic city of Madaba.

There is wide variety of food in Jordanian cuisine ranging from baking, sautéeing and grilling to stuffing of vegetables (grape leaves, eggplants, etc.), meat, and poultry.

The most common and popular appetiser is hummus, which is a puree of chick peas blended with tahini, lemon, and garlic. A successful mezze must of course have koubbamaqliya, labaneh, baba ghanoush, tabbouleh, olives and pickles. The most distinctive Jordanian dish is mansaf, the national dish of Jordan.

In Jordan, drinking coffee or tea flavored with na’na (mint) is almost a ritual.
