If you’re like many people, you might not even know where Jordan is on a map, let alone thought of traveling there.  If you say “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”, you might get some recognition for Petra. But this small country is packed full of culture and incredible sites.

Geosciences Professor Dr. Tom Paradise has been studying Jordan for over 25 years. Engaging Cultures Travel had a chance to sit with him and ask the question, “Why visit Jordan?”  Click the video below to see what he had to say.
