Jordan is a small country which has its capital in Amman, attracts over a million tourist annually with peak travel times occurring in the summer. Although Jordan has 4 seasons it receives about 310 days of sunlight due to it being primarily a desert. Jordan is a predominately Islam nation that has a unique culture when compared to other Arab nations as a result of the western world’s influence. Jordanian cuisine primarily consists of meat (lamb, beef and goat), poultry, that is usually baked, grilled, roasted or sautéed. Like most Arab countries, the majority of its citizens practice Islam while the minority practice Christianity. The national language in Jordan is Arabic, however, English is spoken in urban areas particularly in Amman.

Jordan has 3 commercial airports but only has one domestic route between Amman and Aqaba because of how small the country is. There are however public buses and taxis available and you can rent vehicles equipped with GPS to get around. For travellers coming into the country, it is advised that you dress appropriately as Jordan is a conservative country. Beyond that, it is relatively safe even if you travel Independently.
