2017 Culinary and Cultural Tour of Jordan

2017 Culinary and Cultural Tour of Jordan

For the second year in a row, Jordan Tourism Board, North America (JTBNA) has hosted IFWTWA on a culinary and cultural tour of Jordan that participants rank at the top of their list of extraordinary journeys. Indeed, this country of the Middle East stands alone amidst surrounding chaos, but who would know. Safe, friendly, inspiring and jaw dropping, Jordan offers unforgettable sites, unexpected welcoming, unique links to ancient times inching up through the earth’s surface aching to be uncovered, and natural wonders that feed the soul. From Nebetaneans and Romans to Moses and Jesus, from Lawrence of Arabia to Red Sea diving and Dead Sea spas, Jordan offers so much to the observer. It’s a beautiful country in so many surprising ways.
