Yes, it’s Jordan

Do you want to float in the Dead Sea or lose yourself in the rose red city of Petra? You’ve found your dream destination. Officially called the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Jordan is one of the most tourist friendly countries in the Middle East!

For nature lovers, you can travel into the arid Arabian Desert to hike through a biosphere reserve, and dive the reefs of the Red Sea, and scale the cliffs at Wadi Rum.

Faith-based travelers can get baptized in the same spot as Jesus, make a pilgrimage journey to Mount Nebo, where Moses was buried, and see the incredible Madaba Mosaic Map of the ancient Near East.

History lovers can explore Crusade-era castles and Roman amphitheaters, and view the Dead Sea Scrolls in Amman.

Yes, it’s Jordan. All of it.
