Jordan in pictures - Petra
In brief +
FCO travel update: the FCO advises against all but essential travel to within 3km of the Syrian border from the Sad Al-Wihdeh Dam up to, but not including, the Jabr crossing. The FCO also advise avoiding large crowds, political gatherings and demonstrations, including in downtown Amman and other urban centres after Friday midday prayers.
Bordered by the Dead Sea and the Red sea, Jordan has become a leading cultural destination. From Petra, the Nabataean city, to the beaches of the Gulf of Aqaba, through to the Negev desert, Jordan is about sports, relaxation and culture. Do not hesitate to follow the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia and the Bedouins, at the crossroads of the Phoenician, Greek, Roman and Byzantine civilisations where you will meet very welcoming people.
FCO travel update: there are no travel restrictions in place in this travel advice for Jordan - 3 Dec 2012.
