Egypt and Jordan Vacations
Imagine experiencing the wonders of Jordan and Egypt in one adventure package. Both countries boast of a stunning array of eye-catching destinations that include ancient cities, deserts, and seas. Why enjoy only one country when you can have the best of two incredible ones. Get ready for the ride as we explore what is in store for us in Jordan and Egypt.
The Rose City of Petra in Jordan
Have you ever watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade? When Indiana Jones rode down a canyon as he approached the temple? That particular canyon is known as the Siq, and the temple is actually the treasury inside Petra, an ancient UNESCO-listed Nabataean city in Jordan. Nothing will prepare you the sheer expanse of the city, expertly carved into the red-rose colored limestone in the Wadi Musa desert. And it pays that Petra is among the biggest and most crucial archaeological sites worldwide. And also that in 2007, it was inducted among the New 7 Wonders of the World?

The Dead Sea in Jordan
Maybe you don t know this, but The Dead Sea is one of the earliest known health resort. Well, this is where Herod the Great used to immerse himself for rejuvenating baths. It is also one of the lowest continental places on the earth’s surface, and nothing beats a swim there. Experience a night in the Dead Sea and float in the renowned buoyant waters rich in minerals. Also, you can go further and smother yourself with Dead Sea mud!

The Barren Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan
A 4×4 trip is all you need to explore the lands of T. E. Lawrence. When you see the vista in this desert, you will understand why the local tribes call it the Valley of the Moon. This is where you can view a red desert so untamed and that has endless sand dunes and rock formations. And what beats sleeping under the desert sky and exploring ancient caravan routes? And the Bedouins living in the desert will give you a glimpse of their ancient way of life.
Hurghada – Egypt
You can t really end your visit without visiting the beach, now can you? The Hurghada beach resort town should be on the itinerary of every tourist.
