Jordan shares its borders with Israel, the Syrian Arab Republic, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. The Dead Sea in the Northwest of Jordan is 400 metres below sea level and is the lowest point on the earth's surface. The capital city of Amman is perched above the Dead Sea at a height of 800 metres on the plateau that extends 324 kilometres from the Syrian Arab Republic to Ras en Naqab in the south. It is well known as one of the country's most distinctive features. By complete contrast the Red Sea is teeming with life.
The capital city of Amman is home to about one third of the population, approximately 2.5 million. It is often referred to as the 'white city' and it was originally built on seven hills which still make up the focal points of the city. Amman is now very well equipped with excellent hotels and tourist facilities, due to the extensive building projects in the region. The hill (jabal) areas are particularly beautiful and the central market (souk) is alive and provides a taste of tradition. The ancient city of Petra attracts a large number of tourists each year.
