Arabian delight - History & adventure

Arabian delight off course it was really a combination of History and adventure when I had traveled to Jordan.

Most of the people have apprehension in traveling to Arabian Country but Jordan is something that would make one enjoy the holiday in true sense.

The people there are as hospitable as we Indians are and would go all out to make you feel at home in their country.

The gateway to Jordan is Amman a city that is based over 7 hills which has a lot of its history to offer. Shall give in details of the day wise activities that I did there which covered a lot of Jordan right from Amman to Aqaba. Will not be going into Historical details, just mention the places which any one can read in net. The whole point being this article is to apprise all with all what one can do in Jordan.

My journey started from Delhi via Royal Jordanian the national carrier of Jordan. On reaching Amman it took over an hour from the Airport to the city center where we were made to stay. An early morning flight makes one miss the sleep of yester night so that day we just relaxed get acquainted with each other, had fun pulling leg of each other and had good time.

Next day Morning our Tour started right after breakfast to Citadel and then onward to Jerash, which was way back one of the 10 great cities of Romans. Those who do not have any liking for history then should not go to these places, rather after landing at Amman Airport should proceed for Wadi Rum.

After covering various historical places our tour's last point was Royal Automobile Museum, and really thatwas the best part of the tour, as the Museum is just world class, showcasing the oldest cycle to earlier bikes, the earlier models of Rolls Royce, Mercedes, Volkswagen etc etc to the latest models, simply awesome.

Next day was a very hectic one we started off with early breakfast to Ajlun, a city comprising of desert castles dated way back 8th century.

Quseir Amra, one of the best preserved monuments, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its interior walls and ceilings are covered with lively frescoes, and two of the rooms are paved with colorful mosaics.

Spending over a half day there had our lunch enroute to Wadi Rum. That was really magnificient desert drive when we reached there.

Lawrence had said - "the crimson sunset on its stupendous cliffs and slanted ladders of hazy fire down its walled avenue"


There we boarded our 4x4 and the desert safari was simply awesome. In between we stopped at various places and as the sun was setting we could literally see sand changing colour. End of the safari was at a deluxe camp made in the desert which had tented rooms just like a 5* hotel.

The moment we reached there we were greeted with drinks it was now dark and one could see stars twinkling nearby, they appeared really close and the best part was that every 2-3 minutes you could see shooting stars.

It was really difficult to withdraw your eyes once you start looking up.

After some time there was a belly dance and the gyrations of the dancer was superb hundred times better than what you see in Dubai camps. Till late night we kept on drinking dancing, had our dinner around 11 pm and on our request the dancer performed again. Finally around 2 early morning we retired into our tented rooms.

Next day we moved around 10 am and after breakfast headed for Petra.

Dating back 300 BC

Will not be going into the history of Petra, that one can read on net. But would advise that if you are going there, then do not climb up to any of the caves enroute on Al Siq, it really stinks as people (locals) use those caves for deficating.

Well once you reach the end of Siq you greeted by this mammoth structure made in single rock piece called Treasury.

Hotels in Petra are good, but do not go in below 4* there.

So after our tour of Petra was over, we stayed that night in a 5* hotel, had our dinner in a different hotel as we were all invited there, to have a look around of the hotel.

Next day early Morning after breakfast we left for Dead Sea. Details about Dead Sea can be read here
