The capital Amman is located in the north of Jordan, and features are spread along the entire length of the north-south side of the country.
North of Amman is also the ancient city of Jerash, where you can visit some of the most impressive Roman ruins in the eastern Mediterranean world.
Other places of interest include Umm Quais, Ajlun Castle and Pella (northwest of Amman). Madaba and its archaeological park include some of the most beautiful mosaics in the world.
Parts of the western edge of Jordan’s border are the Jordan River and the Dead Sea.
Near the Dead Sea is Bethany (the place of Jesus’ baptism). One should also visit the Dead Sea to experience floating without the fear of drowning.
Wadi Rum is a desert landscape that leaves no one untouched.
The archaeological ruins of Petra are Jordan’s biggest tourist magnet and a must-see for anyone travelling in Jordan. It’s a huge area that takes a few days to really see everything.
