Jordan is a country that well and truly has something for all types of travelers; a marvelous blend of vast natural beauty, and an abundance of fascinating historical attractions. When you travel through Jordan with us, we make sure you to enjoy a bit of both. Here are a few of what we believe to be the best attractions to look out for in Jordan:
- The Roman Theater – Located in the heart of Amman, Jordan’s capital city, one cannot help falling in love with the ancient Roman Theater which to this very day is still used for hosting various performances. It is also home to some museums, so it really is a great place to spend some time while you are in the city.
- Mount Nebo – This is the famous mountain, which, according to the Bible, was the place where God first showed Moses the Promised Land. Standing on the mountain and being able to gaze upon the Promised Land is for most visitors a very touching experience.
- The Dead Sea – No trip to Jordan is complete without spending at least some time at the Dead Sea, enjoying the benefits of its mineral-rich mud, and floating effortlessly on the water, a feat which is made possible by the water’s incredibly high salt content.
- The Jordan Desert – A trip into the desert, is for most visitors, an experience they never forget, and particularly if your trip includes an overnight stay in the desert. Certain parts of the desert, such as Wadi Rum, for example, have also become immensely popular among adventure seekers in search of great rock climbing opportunities. Wadi Rum is a very beautiful part of the desert which enjoyed a huge boost in tourism as a result of the Lawrence of Arabia movie which was filmed in the area.
- Jerash – This ancient Roman provincial city never fails to amaze and impress all who visit, and it is widely seen as being the largest and most well-preserved collection of ancient Roman architecture outside of Italy.

Often referred to as the City of Gold, Dubai really is a city of almost unfathomable contrasts. On one side you have centuries-old mosques, monuments and market places surround by a maze of narrow roads an alleyways, while on the other hand you are surrounded by opulence and all things ultra-modern. Here are some of the top attractions which we believe all visitors should see:
- Burj Khalifa – Being the tallest building and the tallest manmade structure ever built, it is virtually impossible for visitors not to see this awe-inspiring masterpiece. However, to fully appreciate the real magic of this skyscraper, we recommend looking for a tour which includes admission to the tower’s observation deck.
- Dubai Mall – It should come as little surprise to learn that this is the largest shopping mall in the world. Apart from an almost infinite number of shops, the mall is also home to some fantastic attractions, including the spectacular Dubai Aquarium for example. Dubai Mall also holds the record of being the most visited tourist attraction in the entire world.
- Gold and Spice Souks – Don’t for a minute expect these souks to be anything like any other souks you may have visited elsewhere during your travels. One could very easily spend an entire day at the souks, and the sheer amount of gold which is openly displayed at the Gold Souk is something which has to be seen in order to be believed.
- Palm Jumeirah – Welcome to the world’s largest manmade island; the in place to be for those with plenty of money to spare. Besides an abundance of opulent homes, the island is also home to the fairytale-like Atlantis Hotel, complete with its very own dolphins and a water park which is beyond words.
- Souk Madinat Jumeirah – A real gem of a place where you could quite happily spend several hours or even an entire day exploring the many narrow roads and pathways, many of which are lined with small cafes and boutique restaurants.
- Dubai Desert Experience – If you want a truly amazing outdoor experience, we highly recommend choosing a tour which includes a 4×4 desert experience with an opportunity to ride a camel and enjoy a wonderful BBQ dinner under the stars at a local Bedouin camp in the desert.
While Turkey is without doubt an incredibly popular destination for people who are looking for an affordable and relaxing holiday in the sun, with days spent lounging on the country’s lovely beach, there is in fact so much more to see in the amazing country. Turkey has an endless number of tourist attractions to suite all types of travelers. Here are some of the top attractions, all of which can be found in our multi-country Asia tour packages that feature Turkey:
- Hagia Sofia – Nobody should visit Istanbul without visiting Hagia Sofia. Originally built as a Greek Orthodox Church, this immense building was so impressive that when the Ottoman Turks successfully invaded the area in 1453, the leader of the invasion gave the order to convert it into a mosque, rather than demolish it. In 1931, Hagia Sofia ceased to function as a mosque, and instead, it was converted into a museum which, today, is visited by nearly 4 million people every year.
- Topkapi Palace – Be prepared to be dazzled from the moment you arrive at this incredible palace which served as the official residence of the Ottoman sultans who ruled Turkey for around 400 years, from the 15th to the 19th There is so much to see at the palace, including large treasure collections, a vast amount of antiquities, and even gold thrones.
- The Blue Mosque – Located only a short distance from Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosque is truly a magnificent complex, best known for its abundance of blue hand-painted ceramic tiles; its many lavish chandeliers, and its abundance of stained glass windows. What also sets this vast mosque apart from many other mosques is the fact that it is open to visitors, including non-Muslims. As a sign of respect, visitors should however refrain from entering the mosque during prayer times.
- Cappadocia – While Cappadocia is actually an area in Turkey rather that a tourist attraction, it nonetheless qualifies as an attraction simply because it is home to so many fascinating sites, including underground cities and a vast collection of churches, fortresses, dwellings and more which have all been carved out of the mountain cliffs at various times in antiquity.
- Pamukkale – If you choose one of our multi-country Asia tour packages that feature Turkey, there is a strong possibility that your tour itinerary will include a short stay in Pamukkale, along with some incredible sightseeing at a number of attractions in this area, including a remarkable old basilica, some Roman baths, and a magnificent old necropolis.
The attractions which have been mentioned within this article only represent only a very small number of the attractions which you will actually end up seeing, regardless of which of our multi-country Asia tour packages you choose.
When Is the Best Time to Travel to Asia?
When Is the Best Time to Travel to Asia?
When is the best time for people to enjoy multi-country Asia tour packages? The most popular time of the year tends to be between September and May (high season), when the weather is generally cooler. However, there may be some fluctuation, depending on which countries are paired in our multi-country Asia tour packages. The cooler weather is one of the main reasons why many people like to visit during the high season, but it is not the only reason. Many travelers also book the holidays during the high season because it often coincides with very cold winters back in their own countries.
While booking your vacation during the high season certainly has its advantages, there are also a few disadvantages. To begin with, popular tourist attractions can frequently become very crowded and very busy during the high season due to the increased influx of tourists. During the warmer months of the low season, there are considerably less tourists, so if you are the sort of person who likes to avoid large crowds, then this might be something worth considering.
Difference in Pricing
It is also worth noting that there can be quite a substantial price difference High Season and Low Season tour prices. This is common throughout the travel industry. In countries where there is a distinct High Season and Low Season, hotel operators and cruise ship operators all lower their tariffs during the Low Season, and in the case of reputable tour operators, these savings can be passed on to consumers.
It is also worth noting that not all tours have different High Season and Low Season prices. However, this is something which can easily be determined simply by clicking on any of our multi-country Asia tour packages, and then click on the “Price” tab on the upper left-hand side of the page that opens. If there are different High Season and Low Season rates, it will be clearly visible.
How to Stay Safe While Touring Asia
How to Stay Safe While Touring Asia
At Egypt Tours Plus, we cannot stress enough just how seriously we take the safety and wellbeing of our clients. At no time would we ever be willing to take our clients anywhere where we ourselves would not want to go. If there is any risk of danger in a particular area, regardless of how small that risk is, then we automatically exclude/remove it from our tour itineraries.
With all of that having been said, nobody is capable of eliminating risk entirely, regardless of whether you are in your own country, or whether you are on foreign shores. To this end, we strongly recommend applying some common sense when traveling abroad, particularly during those time when you will be alone, such as in the evening after tours and etc.
Many of our clients like to leave their hotels in the evening for one reason or another, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with this at all. However, remembering that you are a tourist in an unfamiliar area is the sensible thing to do. A bit of common sense and a few basic precautions can go a long way in keeping you out of harm’s way, particularly when you are out and about on your own:
- Leave unnecessary valuables at your hotel rather than carry them around with you.
- Avoid walking around alone at night in very quiet dimly lit areas.
- Be aware of pickpockets when visiting busy tourist attractions.
- Be aware of scammers who like to prey on unsuspecting tourists. If someone in the street tries to offer or sell you something you don’t want, simply decline their offer in a way which is friendly but firm, and then move on.
- Always try to avoid confrontation, both with locals and other tourists alike.
Note: Visitors who are unfamiliar with local customs in the countries we travel to quite often don’t understand the concept of haggling when they want to buy something. Some mistake haggling for scamming, but in the overwhelming majority of cases, this is not the case. Haggling for better prices is a deep-rooted custom in many countries, so much so, that some vendors will be genuinely disappointed if you don’t make any to haggle for a better price. Don’t worry, once you get the hang of it, it can really be a lot of fun, to the point where you can even strike up new friendships

For example, it is important to keep your body adequately hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids.

It is perfectly understandable that you will almost certainly want to try various snacks and foods sold in the markets and at roadside stalls. One of the biggest rewards of traveling to foreign countries is the opportunity to try so many foods which you may never have seen or heard of before in your own country. However, eating food and or snacks at the side of the road and in markets is not without risk.
The golden rule for minimizing the risk of picking up some sort of a stomach bug is to look to the locals for guidance. If a lot of locals are buy snacks from a particular vendor, or eating at a particular café or restaurant, then you can almost be certain that it is safe for you to do the same.
We also strongly recommend that you do a little bit of research regarding any vaccines which may be required or recommended for the countries you are going to be visiting. In most cases, your physician should be able to advise you on this.
Lastly, many people, and especially those traveling from cold climates, are not accustomed to sort of sunshine one experiences in the various countries that feature in our multi-country Asia tour packages.
