Yes, it’s Jordan


Officially called the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Jordan is a country located on the east bank of the River Jordan. Amman, the capital of Jordan, was known in Biblical times as the home of the Ammonites.

Jordan is rich in both archaeological and natural beauty. You can scale the cliffs at Wadi Rum, dive the reefs of the Red Sea, get baptized in the same spot as Jesus, float in the Dead Sea, and lose yourself in the rose red city of Petra. Almost half of Jordan is covered by the Arabian Desert. Travel into the arid landscape and find fortified castles, ornate churches, and desert citadels.
