Bradt launches new Jordan guidebook

21st Sep 2012

A major travel guide company has published its first ever book on Jordan, coinciding with the 200th anniversary of the rediscovery of the country's most famous site.

Bradt Travel Guides has published the Jordan guidebook, which includes information on its history, culture, wildlife, eco projects, markets and malls, in the year that the country is celebrating the 200th anniversary of the rediscovery of Petra.

There is plenty of advice about the best way to do a day trip to the 'red rose city' but author Carole French hopes there is useful information for both first-time visitors and seasoned travellers to Jordan in the new guide.

"This is Bradt's first guide to Jordan and so it's jam packed with information for both the first-time visitor and regular travellers to the region. I hope that the guide suitably reflects my passion for this inspirational, vibrant, and colourful kingdom," she said.

Other features include ideas for experiencing true Bedouin hospitality in Wadi Rum, tips for discovering more off-the-beaten-track locations like the Eastern Desert and the Decapolis Cities and helpful Arabic phrases.

The 282-page guide also has a picture guide to Jordan's highlights from floating in the Dead Sea to the sights of the capital Amman. And, of course, there is information on luxury, upmarket, mid-range, budget, and shoestring eating and sleeping options.

The Bradt Travel Guide to Jordan is now available for purchase for £16.99 from
