The Municipality of Amman has launched the master plan for a future Amman was unveiled with designated areas for the building of towers. The plan, which includes 260 high-rise buildings, appears well thought out and has had a lot of input from the citizens who attend public meetings.

Love Jordan

February 12, 2007 at 7:51 am (Jordan)


Perhaps it would be a good start for my blog to begin it with the most thing i love and belong to, Jordan.

Check out this cool website for eco-adventures in Jordan, you’ll be amazed how much you can do and enjoy here! Terhaal is a Jordanian ecoadventure operator specialized in offering enchanting green holidays and adventure tours in Jordan. Check out the trips they designed.

Its worth mentioning that the Jordan Tourism Board (JTB) is proud to announce that Petra is among the finalists in the race to become part of the new Seven Wonders of the World. With its giant red mountains and vast mausoleums, Petra is testament of the greatest wonders ever wrought by Nature and Man. It is already often described as the eighth wonder of the ancient world because this vast and unique city is completely carved into the sheer rock face by the Nabataeans more than 2000 years ago.
