1. Petra

Petra is one of the wonders of the world and is the reason for much tourism in Jordan. To understand the importance of this prehistoric city, you have to go back and delve into the pages of history. Petra is isolated from the rest of the world and sits like a valley between the rugged mountains of the Jordanian countryside. It is said that this city was hidden from the world for many years and was only discovered by chance by some curious and inquisitive archaeologists. The most incredible thing about this place are the waterways that are considered too modern to have existed in the time to which Petra belonged. This place is a sight to behold for all and a feast for sore eyes for any fan of history.

2. The Dead Sea

One of the most amazing aspects of the world when it comes to science is the Dead Sea. As the title already helps us understand, the Dead Sea stretches at the lowest point that can be found on the Earth’s surface without having to dig. The seawater here has more salt content than any other body of water in the world, making it practically uninhabitable for fish. Another amazing thing about this is the fact that you can’t drown in the Dead Sea no matter how hard you try. There are no live or dead fish here, and no plants to help you navigate the depths of the sea. But deep sea diving here is still said to be a worthwhile experience.

3. Wadi Rum

The Water Valley or Wadi Rum, as the locals call it, consists of centuries-old river beds and huge areas of dry sand desert combined. This valley is located in southern Jordan. The beauty of this place is the result of thousands of years of accumulation of dust and sand that has resulted in this amazing rock formation. Going here will definitely make you feel like you’ve stepped into the real life version of the Arabian Nights and will start looking for a genie to appear in front of you.
