Surrounded by windswept mountains that arise from burnt orange sands, the region is marked by several moods that are dictated by the changing angles of the sun.

Dive into an Aqaba Adventure
With over 30 diving sites, Aqaba is a dream come true for couples who share a love for the wonders of the underwater world. The Red Sea has always attracted diving and snorkeling enthusiasts with its vibrant coral gardens and fish. However, the captivating sea-life can be witnessed even by casual swimmers at Aqaba. Additionally, the beach makes for a pretty spot to lounge at and relax after a refreshing dip in the sea.
Discover the past at Jerash
Dip your toes in history while exploring the Roman ruins in the Middle Eastern city of Jerash. Founded by Alexander the Great, the Greco-Roman metropolis comprises paved and colonnaded streets, soaring hilltop temples, regal theatres, spacious public squares, plazas, baths, fountains and city walls dotted with towers and gates. However, that’s not all, The Jerash Heritage Company puts up performances of the Roman army and chariots to showcase their battle techniques and philosophy.
Explore Ancient History at Petra
The steep sandstone terrain of the ancient Nabatean city of Petra is mesmerizing from all angles. The ancient rose-hued town includes the imposing carved facade of the Al Khazneh monument, and numerous other structures. Petra is one of the seven wonders of the world, and was the location for the ‘Indiana Jones’ film shoot. So relive an adventure here or bask in the magical glow of 1800 candles which lights up the ancient marvel as night falls. Petra under the stars makes for one of the most memorable and romantic destinations and an early morning hike into the city’s many mysterious corners is also a highly recommended activity.
