Diving Holidays In Jordan

Jordan borders Saudi Arabia to the east and south-east, Iraq to the east, Syria to the north and West Bank and Israel to the west, sharing control of the Dead Sea. The territory of Jordan had been occupied by many civilizations before the creation of the modern state, that’s why it boasts a rich cultural heritage. Jordan's major tourist activities include numerous ancient places, its unique desert castles and unspoiled natural locations, to its cultural and religious sites. Visitors can explore the magnificent rock-hewn city of Petra, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World; Madaba, well known for its Byzantine mosaics; Roman temples and theaters, the River Jordan and one of the several nature reserves.
