Aqaba, Jordan

Awaiting Your Return From Shore

Aqaba is Jordan's only port; it provides the gateway for excursions to famed Petra and spectacular Wadi Rum, as well as trips to the Dead Sea. Aqaba is equally popular as a diving location. With stark mountains rising in the background, the port boasts an attractive setting. In the center of town is a string of shops, hotels and restaurants.
   The strikingly beautiful site of Petra was founded in the 3rd century B.C. by the Nabataeans, who carved elaborate buildings and tombs out of solid rock. Abandoned and forgotten for centuries, the rose-red City of Petra was rediscovered in the 1800s. Excavations did not get underway until a hundred years later; the central city was unearthed after 1958. Today the site is recognized as one of the most spectacular attractions in the Middle East a must-see for any visitor to this area.

Pier Information
The ship is scheduled to dock at the Port of Aqaba. It is approximately 1.5 miles to the town center. Taxis are usually available at the pier.

Shopping
Look for Bedouin rugs and tapestries created by local women. Brassware and copper coffee pots are also popular. Small bottles of colored sand from Petra with intricate patterns make nice souvenirs. Ladies may want to get some of the Dead Sea beauty products. The local currency is the dinar.

Cuisine
Meals start with mezze, or appetizers, followed by the main course, which may include such specialties as lamb roasted on a spit and kebabs cooked over a charcoal fire. Several restaurants in Aqaba offer tasty seafood.
