Jordan Tourism

Jordan, aka Lawrence’s Arabia, is one of the most hospitable and welcoming countries in the world. In the Middle East, which has a reputation for being exceptionally male-oriented, Jordan comes across as a cool breath of equality. Famous for its pink Petra caves, glimpses of ancient Greek, Roman temples, amphitheatres and gateways and samples of Christian civilization. Jordan isn’t quite swamped by tourists though.

The tensions of the region are to blame for that, but don’t get taken in by incomplete information – Jordan is a safe place, as safe as any place around the world. So don the kaffiyeh, contemplate the expanses of desert and feel the romance and inspiration, as Lawrence of Arabia and Moses once did!

Jordanians are quite serious about preparing their national dish Mansaf- lamb seasoned with aromatic herbs, cooked in yoghurt. They believe in spending hours preparing this lip smacking dish….so don’t miss out to try their speciality!

The natives of the country are quite superstitious about making remarks…they believe that excessive praise of children brings bad luck, so it should be avoided.
