An ancient world and a warm welcome awaits you in Jordan. Here, hospitality is rooted in Bedouin tradition. Combine that welcoming attitude with Jordan's stunning landscapes and astonishing historic sites, and you're in for a vacation like no other. Explore countryside and cities you'll swear you've seen somewhere before--you have, in films. Travel through a winding canyon to an ancient treasury carved into the sandstone mountainside, and you've found the central setting for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Gaze out across the pink sands and otherworldly cliffs of Wadi Rum, and you'll recognize Lawrence of Arabia.

But Jordan is more than a Hollywood set. UNESCO World Heritage Sites abound here. Ancient Roman temples and amphitheaters, the stone city of Petra, and castles left over from the Crusades all wait to be discovered. Float on the Dead Sea and explore the Biblical history of the region. Enjoy the capital, Amman, one of the oldest continually occupied cities in the world. That's just the beginning of the wonders waiting for you in Jordan.
