What people are saying:

The land on both sides of the Jordan River is fertile and the scenery is beautiful, but it is the many historical and religious relics on both sides that make the Jordan River famous. According to legend, the ancient Israelites passed this river and entered Canaan, the “land promised by God”. Jesus was also baptized here before embarking on the thorny road of preaching. Before the Jordan River flows into the Dead Sea, there are two famous bridges across the Jordan River, namely the Abdullah Bridge and the Allenby Bridge. They are the border bridges between Israel and Jordan. Between the two bridges, 8 kilometers away from the desert oasis Jericho, according to legend, Jesus was baptized here.
