Is the dead sea worth visiting?
The Dead Sea – known locally as Al-Bahr al-Mayit or Bahr Lut (Sea of Lot) – is one of the world’s most extreme locations. About 65km long, with waters six times saltier than the ocean, the depression lies sweltering and sticky at the lowest point on earth. As you descend from the central Jordanian plateau into the Rift Valley the air gets warmer, thicker and muggier. The scenery turns barren brown and a spectacularly blue lake opens up before your eyes, most people come to the Dead Sea to float in the weirdly buoyant waters or to pamper themselves in a seashore spa, for more information visit the Official tourist website
If you only go to one place in Jordan, make it Petra. Hewn from towering rock walls of multicoloured sandstone, the imposing façades of its great temples and tombs are an enduring testament to the vision of the desert tribes who sculpted them. The Nabataeans – Arabs who dominated the region in pre-Roman times – chose as their capital a place concealed from the outside world and fashioned it into one of the Middle East’s most remarkable cities. almost as spectacular as the monuments themselves are the countless shades and Neapolitan swirls formed in the rock. Petra is often called the ‘Rose-red City’ but even this hardly does justice to the extraordinary range of colours that blend as the sun makes its daily passage over the site.
Is a modern Arab city rather than one of the great cultural centres of the Middle East, it has never rivalled Damascus or Cairo as a grand Islamic city of antiquity. For those arriving from Syria or Egypt it can, depending on your perspective, feel either refreshingly or disappointingly modern or Westernized. Residents talk openly of two Ammans. Conservative and Islamic in its sympathies, Eastern Amman (which includes downtown) is home to the urbanised poor, with vast suburban Palestinian refugee camps on its fringe. Western Amman is a world apart, with leafy residential districts, trendy cafés and bars, and impressive art galleries. It’s impossible to gain a full understanding of Amman, or even Jordan, without visiting both areas.
The old Roman town of Jerash sits overlooking the modern town of Jerash - the contrast is startling. Spend a full day here to thoroughly appreciate the place and visit all areas. Travelling north from Amman is a 1-hour drive. It has a Mediterranean-type climate. The best time to visit is in the spring. There are many good restaurants in the area the bakeries around here make fantastic bread.
