Jordan is an Instagram paradise, from the vibrant colored sand to the pink, rose-colored rock faces and ancient historical sites. The Wadi Rum Desert served as the set for the movie “The Martian” meant to look like mars, so it is easy to see why Jordan is such an awe-inspiring place that is so special to capture on camera. There are many more places but here are the 5 most Instagrammable places in Jordan.
The lost city of Petra is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a thrilling glimpse into the past. Sites like the Monastery or the treasury are large facades carved directly into the rock face on a grand scale. It is easy to imagine the once thriving city of the Nabateans. People travel from far and wide to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World, so it is no wonder Petra is one of the most Instagrammable places in Jordan, but also in the world. Another special way to capture Petra is at night when the entire area is lit up by candles creating a mystical and magical vibe in this enchanting ancient site.

The famous Dead Sea is more than 400 m below sea level and is, in fact, the lowest point on earth. Due to the hypersalinity of the water, it is only possible to float.

There are also plenty of resorts situated along the Dead Sea ideal for catching up on some R&R. One of the most Instagrammable places in Jordan, it is easy to get a few pictures floating in the water, covered and mud, and arguably one of the best shots – seeing the sunset over the Dead Sea.
