Cheap Flights to Jordan

Jordan is the darling of the Middle East, with its slick and contemporary cities, the windswept dunes of its arid deserts, and the glorious treasures of its ancient attractions. Here you can see forums and amphitheatres where the Romans once traded, medieval castles where the country was once ruled, and the ancient city of Petra, where kings are buried.

Things to do in Jordan

When you make the decision to fly to Jordan, you will likely be welcomed into Amman first. As the capital of the country, you’ll find a mixture of modern and ancient attractions, from Roman ruins, to contemporary art galleries. You must also visit Aqaba, though it isn’t as slick as the capital, you’ll find that there’s a slower way of life here allowing you to access the lovely coastal beaches, explore the Yamanieh coral reef, and more importantly—try the excellent cuisine.

Outside of the cities you will find that there are scads of caravans making their way across the burning sands of the desert, and embarking on a camel safari to Wadi Rum can mean the chance to discover, and learn about the Bedouin way of life. Spend a night under the stars, socialise in a carpeted tent, and eat sweet curry in the endless plains.

You should also make a bypass for the Dead Sea, where you can float in its salty waters, and cover yourself in the mineral rich mud, which is vaunted for being revitalising.

And then there is Petra; a city so beautiful and astounding it doesn’t seem real. Tread the age-old steps of the great men and women who built the city of tombs and temples by carving them into the rock face. We dare you not to find a little magic in those ancient corridors.
