Wadi Rum
A journey to Wadi Rum is a journey to another world. A vast, silent place, timeless and starkly beautiful, Wadi Rum is one of Jordan most stunning deserts capes in the World. As the main inhabitants of Wadi Rum, the lives of the Bedouin are intrinsically linked with the desert landscape and here and there you will see women herding goats and families around their traditional camel hair tents. Uniquely shaped massive mountains rise vertically out of the pink desert sand, which separate one dark mass from another in magnificent desert scenery of strange breathtaking beauty with towering cliffs of weathered stone. The faces of the sheer rock cliffs have been eroded by the wind into faces of men, animals and monsters. Immortalized as the desert of Lawrence of Arabia, Wadi Rum (Wadi means valley) was once a meeting place for caravans from Arabia but also has a longer history dating back to pre-historic times.

Jerash, located 48 km north of Amman and nestled in a quiet valley among the mountains of Gilead, is the grandeur of Imperial Rome being one of the largest and most well preserved sites of Roman architecture in the World outside Italy. To this day, its paved and colonnaded streets, soaring hilltop temples, handsome theaters, spacious public squares and plazas, baths, fountains and city walls pierced by towers and gates remain in exceptional condition. Here the past really comes to life as you stand on the stage of the beautiful amphitheater, stroll around the once bustling market place and imagine the sounds of laughter coming from the bathhouses. As you walk between the columns, glance down at your feet where narrow channels worn into the stone are a remarkable reminder of the days when chariots regularly thundered by.

Less than 2 km. east of the Jordan River is an important place associated with the lives of Jesus and John the Baptist  the settlement of Bethany, where John lived and baptized. John 1:28 refer to it as "Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing". In John 10:40 it is mentioned as the place to which Jesus fled for safety after being threatened with stoning in Jerusalem: "Then Jesus went back across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing in the early days". The small natural hill forming the core of Bethany is called Elijah's Hill or Tell Mar Elias in Arabic. Local tradition for thousands of years has identified it as the place from where Elijah ascended to heaven.
Bethany's ancient remains include structures from the 1st century settlement of John the Baptist , including large plastered pools with steps for full immersion, and the 5th-6th century remains of the Byzantine period settlement called Ainon or Saphsaphas and depicted on the 6th century Madaba Mosaic Map of the Holy Land.

Dead Sea
The Dead Sea is one of the most spectacular natural places in the world. It is the lowest body of water on earth, the lowest point on earth and the world's richest source of natural salts. As you descend to 400 meters below sea level, the mountains tower above, looking fierce and unforgiving.  The salt content is four times that of most worlds' oceans; you can float in the Dead Sea without even trying, which makes swimming here a truly unique experience not to be missed. The Dead Sea is said to contain many healing properties and you can reach down and pick up some of the soft, sulphuric black mud and cover your body like a mud pack! Many travellers remark just how good their skin feels after a quick dip in its waters. Stepping into the Dead Sea is a sensation like no other and definitely one of those life experiences that you shouldn't miss out on.
