Book your holiday to Jordan with Wendy Wu Tours
Jordan is an Arab country of Southwest Asia, in the rocky desert of the northern Arabian Peninsula. Also known as The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, it has played a pivotal role in the Middle East.
A safe haven in a region of conflict, Jordan has delighted visitors for centuries with its World Heritage Sites, friendly towns and inspiring desert landscapes. Jordan is located in the heart of the Middle East, Northwest of Saudi Arabia, South of Syria, Southwest of Iraq, and East of Israel and the Palestenian National Authority. Jordan has access to the Red Sea via the port city of Aqaba, located at the northern end of the Gulf of Aqaba.
Jordan has a combination of Mediterranean and arid desert climates, with Mediterranean prevailing in the North and West of the country, while the majority of the country is desert. Generally, the country has warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters, with annual average temperatures ranging from 12 to 25 C and summertime highs reaching 40 C in the desert regions. Rainfall averages vary from 50 mm annually in the desert to 800 mm in the northern hills, some of which falls as snow in some years.
Jordan offers a wealth of wonderful sights and experiences. What better way to explore them than on a Wendy Wu tour?
