7) What kind of a traveler is well suited for Jordan?
ALL KINDS. It has everything for everybody. I would definitely recommend this country as it is rich in culture, tradition and has some of the most breathtaking archeological sites in the world that date back to the second century. The capital Amman, is a city with not that much appeal but once you have visited the lowest point on earth i.e Dead Sea and floated in its salty waters, hiked through the gobsmacking towering canyon caves that open out into the Treasury at Petra or even gazed in awe at the starry skies from your luxurious tent at Wadi Rum or taken a swim in the Red Sea, there is just about everything for every kind of traveler. Family, friends, couple or solo, Jordan is a must. I would go back in a heartbeat.
8) Is Jordan safe?
I found Jordan to be one of the safest countries. The people are very nice, friendly and willing to help. I think I have had good experiences in most places I've traveled to. People are more welcoming of tourists everywhere. From my hotel reception staff to my driver who took me everywhere, people were friendly and went out of their way to make sure my trip was hasslefree and fun. Safety wise, I would absolutely recommend Jordan.
9) What is Jordan known for? What can I see/buy/do?
Extremely archaeological in its display, Jordan has some marvelous sites to visit. The lowest point on earth, The Dead Sea will leave you invigorated and slightly sore after you're done floating in it. One of the new seven wonders of the world, Petra, will leave your jaw still on the floor even after you're back home. A starry night glamping in Wadi Rum will leave you hypnotized and the deep blue of Aqaba will render you speechless. Jerash, Amman Citadel and the amphitheater are also gorgeous. I am trying to keep this short, but Jordan is a visual wonder of the world!
What it is known for, other than its wonderous sites is their intricate mosaic work. Needless to say that it is expensive, but their mosaic work is beautiful and creative with the tiniest of details being taken into consideration. It attracts all types of people - students, teachers, collectors, suppliers as well as manufacturers visit Jordan so that they can indulge in this glorious and ancient form of art. One will also see a lot of it used in the sites.
After addressing the basic questions I had and a few others that were thrown my way, this is a simple pre-travel tips guide that I thought might be helpful to my readers. I would suggest that it would be a great experience to step out of your comfort zone and visit unusual and exotic places every now and then. Rich is travel is rich in life!
