Book Description

1 May 2013 Insight Guides

Insight Guide Jordan is a comprehensive full-colour travel guide to the culture, history, people and sights in this peaceful and prosperous Middle Eastern country. Our inspirational Best Of section selects Jordan's top attractions, from the iconic rose-red city of Petra and the desert landscape of Wadi Rum, associated with Lawrence of Arabia, to the Dead Sea, Roman ruins, desert castles, Biblical sites and first-class diving in the Red Sea.

Our unrivalled coverage of history, landscape and culture provides an essential introduction to Jordan's heritage and contemporary life, to complement the in-depth look at crafts, outdoor activities and Jordanians' love affair with the Arabian horse. The informative text, written by regional experts, is a pleasure to read and accompanied by stunning photography.

Lavish, magazine-style features offer an insight into Jordanian architecture, the Bedouin, café society in the capital, Amman, and the Red Sea.

All major sights are cross-referenced with the maps, and the travel tips section provides a wealth of practical information on how to plan your trip, as well as carefully selected hotel and restaurant listings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide 13 Sep 2013
By Maureen
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Would recommend this book for a traveller wanting to get a fairly comprehensive overview of the country before their visit. There are good descriptions of the major sites with excellent photography. Enjoyed reading about the background history of Jordan. The recommendations for hotels and restaurants are discretely positioned in the guide so it would be good for visitors with pre booked accomodation etc. I am not sure if the book is detailed enough to act a guide book whilst actually visiting a site such as Petra.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Book 10 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book goes into great depth and so is very informative.
I will be visiting Jordan this year and this book will be coming with me.
The topics covered in this book are well laid out and the many colour pictures are great.
I am reading this book in advance of my trip as you would read any book, for the history and culture,
having cherry picked the places I will be visiting and practical travel details.

I have most of the series in my native language but for some reason I couldn't find Jordan so I got the English version. Excellent and comprehensive country guide from an equally excellent series!

3.0 out of 5 stars Insight Guide to Jordan 30 Aug 2013
By patricia a. white - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Disappointing that the Guide doesn't contain better maps, especially maps of Amman that are legible on my iPad. And that there's little info about walking in Amman, restaurants, etc.
