Jordan is full of local color, historical landmarks, and sights you won’t see anywhere else in the world. Whether you’re a history buff, a nature walk lover, or a spa enthusiast, Jordan has something for everyone.
The monastery at Petra
This magnificent archaeological find has been preserved throughout the centuries for your viewing pleasure. This building carved into rock is so picturesque that it has been used for several major Hollywood productions such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The trek to reach the monastery is also an adventure, as you’ll be surrounded by natural beauty such as giant cliffs and canyons.
Today, this Biblical site is home to a number of luxury resorts with public and private beaches. It’s been said that the Dead Sea’s waters are so buoyant that you can lay on your back and read a newspaper while you’re taking a dip. This is because the Dead Sea contains so much salt that you can’t sink; you can only float. You’ll have to experience it for yourself to believe it.
Exploring the Wadi Rum in the desert summer heat is not for the faint of heart, but if you decide to go, it will be an unforgettable adventure. This valley is most famous as a filming location from the classic film Lawrence of Arabia. It’s home to canyons, cliffs, valleys, rock bridges, and other scenic rock formations. You might even be able to see some ancient cave drawings or engage in some rock climbing.
As you’re travelling to these different sites, you might need a quick, reliable mode of transportation. Outside of Amman, driving in Jordan is relatively easy, and Monte Carlo Rent a Car, LLC provides car rentals in Jordan for tourists who want to make use of Jordan’s vast road system.
