Here’s your chance to win one of two all-inclusive 10-night escapes for two people to the Golden Triangle of Jordan — Aqaba, the charming desert of Wadi Rum and the Rose-Red City of Petra — brought to you by Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority and National Geographic Traveller (UK).
The lucky winners will fly with Turkish Airlines to King Hussein International Airport in Aqaba, with the first prize winner receiving business class tickets. On arrival, you’ll be given a warm welcome by tour representatives before being transferred to a five-star hotel in the city.
Aqaba will be your gateway to the rest of the tour. Enjoy your drive to Wadi Rum, just an hour away, where you’ll spend two days roaming the desert, hiking, scrambling and above all, getting the most from this pure, authentic experience.
Next comes Petra, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Famed for the rose coloured rocks from which it is carved, Petra is a breathtaking historical and archaeological city (built circa 312BC) in southern Jordan. Your guided tour will reveal even more of this must-see tourist attraction.
You will then be transported to Shobak for an overnight stay in what is a pleasant southern town. Set in the wild and remote landscape is the remains of the 11th-century Al Shobak castle, one of the string of Crusader fortresses that wind across the country, and which is well worth a visit.
Finally, if you feel tired and need to relax a little, then swimming and floating in the Dead Sea — the legendary salt lake at what is deemed the lowest point on earth — will soon revive you. You’ll spend two rejuvenating days and one night here, before heading back to Aqaba for your return flight. aqaba.jo
