Best of Umm Qais
It’s easy to feel as though you’ve stepped back in time while wandering an impressive collonaded street and the ruins of two theatres in a once thriving place that was part of the Decapolis (ten great cities in the Middle East). Umm Qais is also a great place to experience community tourism. You can get insight into beekeeping, by helping to harvest the honey (beekeeper suit provided), or learn how to prepare classic dishes followed by a farm-to-table feast in the home of a local family. You can also take a guided bike tour through the surrounding farmlands or go on hikes along country trails just outside of town.
