Jordan is an overlooked gem of the Middle East, and despite its not-very-tempting location in between war zones, it’s a very safe country to visit with warm and friendly locals, a rich history and a diverse array of natural landscapes. The country is situated on the Dead Sea - a salt lake and the world’s lowest body of water. Brightsun Travel has some great holiday packages to Jordan, so you can witness the appeal of this charming Arabian country for yourself.
Jordan is undoubtedly a history lover’s paradise with an array of spectacular sightseeing opportunities, from Roman ruins to archaeological cities.
