Jordan in March

I am currently in nursing school in the U.S. and was offered an international experience to go to Amman Jordan and work in the hospital for 3 weeks. I am sure this would be an amazing experience, but with all that is going on in the Middle East I am honestly very hesitant to accept the offer. I would most likely be traveling with a few other female nursing students and am wondering about the safety of things there. My skin is exceptionally pale, so I know that I will stick out like crazy. Have…

Scuba diving in Aqaba

Hi! I am coming to Aqaba this weekend to dive Friday and Saturday. I tried Darna Village before with snorkle from shore and it was so nice that I decided to take the diving certificate.
Now I want to go scuba and will try from same place, also shore diving. Does anyone have experience in that part of the coral reef?

I am coming from Amman with a rented car Thursday evening and back to Amman Saturday evening.

Anyone wants to join?

Trip Report

Hi I just crossed the King Hussain Bridge into the West Bank from Jordan.

I stayed in Jordan a total of 6 nights, 7 days. I think it was a fair amount of time, however, if i had fallen in with a good travel group, im sure i wouldve stayed longer. Except for a day in Petra and another day Wadi Rum, I was solo.

I liked Amman, despite what some people have reported. I enjoyed walking the city, albeit through extremely hilly terrain, i enjoyed the two main sites (the Roman Theater and the Citadel…

Jordanian Canyoning trip

Does anyone have a solid recommendation for a guide or tour company that does 2/3 day canyon hikes in Jordan?
If anyone knows an Aqaba-based company, even better because it's easiest for me to enter Jordan from Eilat.

Cheers!

Visa before arrival?

Hi, Im EU passport holder and I'm thinking to go travelling in the Middle East around winter.
I'll be probably in KSA before and I plan either to cross overland to Jordan from Al Qurayyat or fly directly from Jeddah to Amman. In any case I'd be granted a VoA. The point is I'd like to visit the West Bank and I really can't afford any israeli stamp in my passport.......
The sketch of my plan is this: Amman-Jerusalem via the Allenby, few places around Palestine, Nazareth, Jordan crossing to Irbid,…

Local Tour operator recommendations

Hi,

Am planning a very short notice trip to Jordan. Please can anyone recommend a good, reputable local tour operator?

Or is it easy to arrive and just make plans upon arrival?

Also a good middle of the road hotel/hostel in Amman?

Any general tips/advice gratefully received. Is it best to take USD or should I change money before arrival?

Many thx.

Travel Companion wanted - short notice trip to Jordan Oct 2014

Hi, this is extremely short notice and unplanned but I'm hoping to fly to Amman in the next few days, spending about 8 days and seeing the main sites (a couple of days at Petra, Wadi Rum, Jerash etc). I'm mid 40s female and easy going. I like historical sites and nature. Just wondered if anyone is there already or arriving at a similar time and would like to share travel costs (joint private tour or bus etc) and possibly twin accommodation? Just looking for an easy going travel companion -…
