Travelling with a local guide in Jordan is highly recommended, although English is spoken in all the country's tourist sites. Travelling with a guide is generally essential in the desert...particularly if you want to come back!
There are many possibilities in this simple box of unrivalled treasures. Small in size, Jordan doesn't lack in cultural or historic richness, or in charming landscapes. A honeymoon to this scared land of history will leave you with lasting memories and will be an original and wise choice.
The Grand Rift valley, the plateaus, and the desert: Jordan has a variety of landscapes for travellers, with some difficult climatic conditions. I'm especially thinking about those people who are brave enough to take a trip to the Dead Sea in summer, when the temperature can easily reach 50 degrees centigrade!
In the heart of the Middle East, Jordan is a stronghold of forward thinking in terms of the relationship, treatment and understanding of disabled people on a large scale. It has also been rewarded by the UN for its actions in this regard.
Ruled first by the Romans and then the Byzantines, Jordan became part of the Ottoman empire in 636. Then, it started the Great Arab Revolt, aided by Lawrence of Arabia, and obtained independence after having fought alongside the English during the Second World War. Although the country has been involved in numerous wars in the Middle East, it has been careful to maintain peaceful relationships with its neighbours since 2000.
