Destination With A Difference

Breathtaking scenery, extraordinary venues and ultra-modern facilities create an ideal environment for both business and leisure in Jordan

Today, Jordan’s wide choice of attractions makes it easy to entertain clients outside of office hours or relax with the team after a busy day in the boardroom. In Amman, the diverse dining scene is complemented by evening destinations catering to a variety of interests, from cigar lounges and exclusive bars to live music venues and clubs. During the day, trips to major landmarks can be combined with a few hours at the mall, a visit to one of the city’s many art galleries or a tour of the old Downtown area, which offers an authentic experience of a traditional Middle Eastern capital.

Those looking to delve deeper into Jordan’s fascinating history can pay a visit to one of the country’s museums. The Jordan Archaeological Museum in The Citadel presents artefacts from prehistoric times to the 15th century, providing a comprehensive overview of the passage of human civilisation in this area across millennia. The Jordan Museum, meanwhile, focuses on more recent societies, offering an insight into the culture of the nomadic Bedu people in the desert and the towns and villages that emerged across the country as they began to settle.


Jordan’s cosmopolitan capital is a hub for business and commerce in the region.
Today, Amman is one of the most visited cities in the Arab world and a major destination for tourism in the region fuelled by its impressive catalogue of business and leisure attractions, Amman is home for one of the largest Roman amphitheatres located in the downtown of the city. 


For much of modern history, Petra was believed to be a myth, unknown to the Western World until 1812, when Swiss explorer Johann Burckhardt re-discoverd the ancient site. Now, the city is restored to former glory as architects carefully uncover its hidden treasures and people comes from the far corners of the planet to admire the work of another age and experience one of the wonders of the world.

Magnificent by day, Petra is even more extraordinary after dark, particularly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, when the Siq and the Treasury are lit up by hundreds of candles for night tours. This experience can be reserved for private groups and combined with a Bedouin-style feast under the stars, surrounded on all sides by rare relics from an ancient time.
