Voice of Travelers to Jordan

Jordan is the best trip I have ever taken

I bought tickets and traveled to Jordan from the UK with my partner and 3 children. I was worried that buying tickets and traveling with my 3 children and their non-biological father to Jordan may be a problem but the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was happy to have us visit their land. The people in Jordan are so accommodating. The crime in Jordan is almost non-existent which makes the experience so much more pleasurable when you do not have to worry about your belongings. Jordan is as beautiful as its culture is and I felt such an attachment to the people and the land they live on. Everyone was so friendly and open to our lack of knowledge of their beliefs and customs in Jordan which are amazingly interesting. I would definitely go again and I recommend it to anyone who is thinking of buying an air ticket to Jordan.

Buying a ticket and traveling in Jordan was easy and cheap

I have bought a ticket to Jordan at least 4 times now and I have found that the ticket transportation system in Jordan is top quality. I was scared of buying an air ticket to Jordan because of the crisis in Syria but the roads used by my drivers were incredibly safe even when traveling closer to Syria. The air ticket was cheap and the ticket prices for traveling by car were very reasonable. The air ticket I bought is good enough in price to just travel by air, to be honest. Most travel ticket outlets in Jordan offer competitive rates which make their ticket prices cheaper.

Jordan is the best place to buy an air ticket for the budding historian

I have just finished my thesis which was based on ancient cultures around Jordan. For a treat, I decided to buy an air ticket to one of the places I found the most interesting during my studies, Jordan. I knew Jordan was littered with historical sites and artifacts but never did I think that I would be swamped and overwhelmed with so many options after buying a ticket. I could not even visit all the historical sites which Jordan is home to. I could not believe the ingenuity of the ancient people in Jordan. I would highly recommend Jordan to anyone who is looking to buy a ticket and experience a truly historical experience in the Middle East. I learned so much even after basing my thesis on Jordan so I know that the money I spent on the ticket was most definitely worth it all and I would spend money on another ticket to Jordan again.
