Jordan Unique venues
Jordan's unique venues for special events and
experience some fascinating possibilities for
theme parties. Only a few of them are listed here:
The Hijaz Railway
over 100 years old, this railway station offers
you an exclusively chartered old steam engine
train ride that transports visitors to an exciting
trip in the desert. Some of the fun possibilities
throughout this trip includes musicians on board
to entertain guests, robbers on horseback to attack
the train and capture "hostages", a
Bedouin tent along the roadbed for a Lawrence
of Arabia coffee break, a catered lunch on the
platform of the Jiza station, and more.
Hijaz Railway was built by the Ottomans to run
from Damascus (in Syria) to Mecca (in Saudi Arabia).
It was constructed in 1900, but was never completed
because of attacks by robbers, and by Lawrence
of Arabia and his men. Although a great part of
the railway was destroyed at the time, much of
the line has been rebuilt and runs throughout
at the Citadel in Amman
a special evening atop one of Amman's hills at
the Citadel, in the shadow of the 2nd century
Temple of Hercules. Attend a reception or dinner
at the 8th century Umayyad Palace with waiters
dressed in costumes from that period. Or, enjoy
an evening under a Bedouin tent with traditional
Middle Eastern food and entertainment.
Evening in Little Petra
can top a visit to the splendours of Petra except
a continuation of the excitement and mystery of
Little Petra with its own 1500-foot "Siq"
entrance, with rock-cut chambers. Colourful carpets
line a large candle-lit tent. Gifted musicians
play during dinner followed by a light show and
dancers. It is a magnificent finale to one of
the most impressive visits to Jordan.
Dead Sea Barbecue
afloat in the buoyancy of the Dead Sea at an exclusive
beach. Then, enjoy a Middle Eastern barbecue served
under a tent with comfortable seating on cushions
and low tables. Immerse yourself in the tranquillity
of the moment. What more delightful way to spend
half a day at only an hour's drive from Amman.
in the Crusader Castle of Karak
deep into the 12th century Karak Castle to the
vaulted underground Great Hall for a memorable
meal. Candles dance, musicians perform, and you
can visualize life during Crusader days.
into Roman History in Jarash
a quest for hidden treasures that leads you through
the splendid ruins and historical paths of this
ancient Roman city. You will be divided into teams
with a map that guides you throughout the treasure
hunt. After the treasure is
found and coffee served, you can play Roman style
team games and have lunch in this spectacular
Evening at Kan Zaman Village
century-old village of Kan Zaman is today a charming
complex of shops and a handicraft centre, cafes
and a large restaurant located in what originally
were huge, high-ceiling stables. The shops sell
everything from spices to antiques, and you can
watch the artisans practice their trades in many
of them. Local music provides the background for
a delicious home-style dinner.
Arabian Nights Dinner
theme dinner is organized in one of the deluxe
hotels in Amman. A Bedouin tent, rich decor and
waiters in costume provide the ambiance of a Sultan's
palace. Seating is Oriental style at low tables.
