The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, which once captivated ancient travellers, continues to enthral a whole new generation as a modern, vibrant nation.

How safe is a trip to Jordan
Despite Jordan being in the heart of the middle east, it is just as safe to take a trip in 2016 as it was in any other years in its past, with the greatest dangers being from random acts of thefts and other petty crimes just like in any other tourist country in the world, including U.S. and Europe.
The areas to avoid as a cautionary measure are the border between Syria and Jordan and stick to the south and central parts of the country. The good news is that the best parts of the country are in south and central Jordan and you can look forward to a memorable trip in the beautiful and historic country
