Jordan Luxury Holidays


Biblical histories, stories about lost cities and the adventures of Lawrence of Arabia: Jordan will bring these legends alive. The lost city of Jerash,50 kilometres north of the capital of Amman, will show you stories of the Roman Empire. The pink city of Petra, carved into rocks, shows stories of the Nabateans and Madaba tells about the Byzantines. In the memorable landscape of Wadi Rum, in the golden shine of the desert, you may notice the mythical fi gure of Lawrence of Arabia. The rock city Petra got into oblivion after a devastating earthquake in 365. In 1812 Petra was rediscovered by a Swiss, who by chance turned up the famous gap and reached the treasury chamber. Only in 1929 the fi rst unearthings took place. Recently Petra is recognized as one of the 7 new world wonders.

Facts: The village that has sprung up around Petra is Wadi Musa (Valley of Moses), formerly known as Elji but now named after the valley it follows. It's a patchy mass of hotels, restaurants and shops stretching about 5km down from 'Ain Musa to the main entrance of Petra.

After the signing of Jordan's peace agreement with Israel & the Palestinian Territories in 1994, Wadi Musa became a boom tourist town, transformed almost overnight from a small town with few visitors and a traditional Bedouin society to a sprawling competitive place overrun by visitors laden with cash. Large numbers of Israelis began to visit, along with other tourists, encouraged by moves towards peace in the region. Some locals have coped with these changes better than others.
