With its wealth of other attractions, Jordan’s splendid Red Sea resort is delightful place for discerning holidaymakers, and it serves as a great base from which to explore various places of interest in southern Jordan including Wadi Rum and Dana Reserve.

Aqaba is a fun place. It is a microcosm of all good things Jordan has to offer, including a fascinating history with some outstanding sites, excellent hotels and activities, superb visitor facilities, good shopping, and welcoming friendly people, who enjoy nothing more than making sure their visitors, have a good time.

From as far back as five and half thousand years ago, Aqaba has played an important role in the economy of the region.

It was a prime junction for land and sea routes from Asia, Africa and Europe, a role it still plays today. Because of this vital function, there are many historic sites to be explored within the area, including what is believed to be the oldest purpose-built church in the world.
