Places to Visit in Jordan

The land once roamed by the real-life Lawrence of Arabia and the reel-life Indiana Jones, is a playground of places to visit, both antiquated and modern. As you go from one to other, you’ll cross eras in history, ancient relics and exquisite natural wonders – it’s all a part of touring the places to visit in Jordan.

You’re only just beginning to see the depth and excitement of Jordan tourist places. A trip to this other-worldly land is incomplete without visiting the famed Dead Sea for its healing energy, Aqaba for its vibe and underwater marvels, the sacred Mount Nebo where Moses was laid to rest, and so much more. Let SOTC show you the way, to finding yourself while travelling Jordan, with its exclusive Jordan tour packages and Africa tour packages.

Jordan’s capital ranks high on tourist spots in the Middle East, with plenty to see and experience. You’d love a few days of what Amman has to offer, before making your way to famed Jordan tourist places like Petra or Wadi Rum. Some of the most well-preserved Roman ruins, the Citadel, the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, and historic structures left behind by the Byzantines and Ottomans – are just a handful of the things you can look forward to.

There is a reason this is considered top of the must visit places in Jordan. Petra rightfully earned recognition as one of the new 7 wonders of the world, an ancient city intricately carved into red sandstone, a flourishing centre of activity even in pre-Biblical times, a towering accomplishment of mankind from a mysterious time in the past. The best part – you could visit it in a day trip or overnight trek, for sunrise or sunset. Don’t forget to wear your explorer shoes!

You can picture what life was like in a Roman kingdom when you visit Jerash – one of the most highly regarded architectural ruins from the era. Let your imagination run wild as you visit exquisite sites like the Temples of Zeus and Artemis, South and North Theatres and the Forum. Then there’s the modern marvels waiting for you, on the other side of Hadrian’s Arch, like quaint cafes and marketplaces.

Explore endless deserts and infinite night skies, in true Bedouin style, at Wadi Rum. This is one of those places to visit in Jordan that will touch your soul. Such is its breathtaking beauty, its red and yellow sunsets, its clear path to view shooting stars and magnificent points of interest like Burdah Rock Bridge, Alameleh Inscriptions and Jebel Rum!

Around a 15th century stone village called Dana, is the Dana Biosphere Reserve – if you’re looking for places to go in Jordan that don’t make the usual itineraries, your search ends here. Visit some of the archaeological sites like ancient copper mines or Khirbet Feynan. Spend your days hiking and your nights under a blanket of stars. There’s also native wildlife and foliage to look out for and photograph!
