From the barren desert to the Gulf of Aqaba and the Jordan River to the mountains of Jerash, Jordan’s beautiful landscape is home to ancient Middle Eastern history and timeless Bedouin hospitality. Enjoy a scenic road trip and eventful visit to the Dead Sea and Petra during the day, and drive back in time for an evening performance or collaboration in Amman.
