Jordan in a nutshell...
Going to Jordan means taking a trip back in time. In this small country with an area comparable to that of the New Aquitaine Region, the remains of ancient Greco-Roman towns rub shoulders with the modern buildings of Amman, the capital. Likewise, the vegetal shades of the northern hills mark an incredible contrast with the mineral tones of the Wadi Rum desert, without forgetting the mysterious City of Petra, a cultural and natural treasure. If you are a fan of water and water sports, you will find your happiness at the edge of the Red Sea in Aqaba. The Dead Sea will be the ideal place if you are rather looking for a place to relax.
Area: 89,342 km
Population: 9.702 million (2017)
Language: Arabic, English as a second language
