Dead Sea Vacation Packages
Amman, which is the national capital, is situated 50 miles (80 kilometers) northeast of Dead Sea.
This region is popular with travelers from all four corners of the globe. To see why, explore the other interesting attractions around Dead Sea. Ma'In, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the east, and Sweimeh, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south of Dead Sea are good spots to check out if you have the time.
When it's time to explore beyond Dead Sea, why not visit the nearest regional center. Amman lays 50 miles (80 kilometers) away and features attractions like Coptic Church, Temple of Hercules and Military Museum. Amman Mall, Mecca Mall and King Abdullah I Mosque are just a handful of the many other visitor attractions on offer here.
Holy places are the perfect portals into a community's heart and soul. The shrines throughout Jordan are certainly no exception.
A great way to enjoy the unique natural environment in Jordan is to sign up for a four-wheel driving or horse riding adventure.
A way to experience the true soul of a place is by exploring the restaurants in the area. Try some dishes and connect with the people who live in the area. Two of the region's key cooking ingredients are chicken and lamb. Maqluba (meat, rice and fried vegetables) and falafel sandwiches are commonly enjoyed by travelers and residents. Jordan desserts such as harissa (honey, semolina cake) are also great to try. Visitors who are not used to drinking alcoholic drinks will can order shaneeneh (aged goat milk yoghurt), a common drink in this region.
Sadly, vacations can't go on forever, so when it's time return home, head to the nearest major airport in Amman, 40 miles (64 kilometers) away.
