Special Interests, Shopping and Beaches

“In both countries it is possible to arrange Archeological Tours; Pilgrimages and Christian Heritage Tours. These are very popular and give a focus to your visit which can be helpful in narrowing down what you want to see.”

“Shopping for traditional items is always interesting in the markets and shops. In Jordan be sure to buy some local handicrafts like hand-woven rugs and cushions, pottery, marquetry work, embroidered items and gold and silver work. While in Israel you’ll enjoy shopping for olive wood products, icons and antiques.”

“Both countries have excellent beaches. The best in Jordan are at Aqaba and the Dead Sea with some fine resorts in both places. In Israel, the best beaches with good beach resorts are found at Eilat, the Dead Sea, Tel Aviv and Herzlia.”
