The Jordanian resort town of Aqaba beside the Red Sea is now more accessible to travellers than ever as airline Royal Jordanian have added prompt same-day connecting flights from the country’s capital Amman down to Aqaba that includes free carriage of scuba diving gear.
The Jordan Tourism Board has revealed that the number of daily Indian travellers visiting Jordan declined in 2016. Figures show that daily numbers from India were down by 4.5 per cent, which indicated that travellers were staying overnight rather than just visiting the sites and attractions for the day. Overnight visitors increased by 18.4 per cent.
The Jordan Trail winds through some of the most historically significant land in the Middle East, as well as some of the most beautiful. The 650-kilometre trail opened earlier this year, and tourism officials hope that the trail will be an economic boon to the 52 villages situated along the trail.
Comprising sandstone and granite rock formations, the Wadi Rum desert in Jordan is the closest place to Mars (at least in appearance) on Earth. After designing the set for 2015 Oscar-winning film “The Martian”, Freedomes created smaller versions of this domed habitat and now travellers can visit for an experience that is out of this world.
A rare natural gem not many know about, the Shaumari Wildlife Reserve is one of Jordan's most surprising eco-attractions; a protected home and breeding ground to some of the rarest animal species to be found in the Middle East. Comprising desert wadis as well as rocky hamada areas, not only are the landscapes here worthy of admiration, but the biodiversity supported means a visit to this reserve is a must for nature and wildlife lovers.
