Of course, no matter what your personal interests may be, no trip to Jordan is complete without a visit to Petra, the ancient Nabatean city named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

Tanning

The IFBB has banned all tans that can be wiped off. An official will check the tan of all athletes backstage and if the tan comes off by simply wiping, the athlete will be told to remove the tan before going on stage. On-site tanning services will be provided by world-renowned tanning product provider Jan Tana. As the number one provider of airbrush spray tanning products and services to bodybuilding competitors and fitness models around the globe, Jan Tana has provided its services to more bodybuilding and fitness champions than any other tanning system provider.
