Spend two nights in the sun-soaked city of Aqaba on an independent trip from Amman! With all travel logistics between the two cities arranged by a private driver, the trip is the ideal experience if you’re looking to enjoy some hassle-free rest and relaxation time in Jordan’s charming Red Sea city. Lounge on the beaches, visit nearby Red Sea dive sites (if that’s your thing) or sightsee independently. Two nights of tourist-class, prime-class or superior-class hotel accommodation are included.
Day 1: Amman – Aqaba (D)Start your 2-night tour with a pickup from your Amman hotel, and then travel south by luxury minibus. After a 4-hour journey, arrive at the Red Sea city and then check in to your hotel. Enjoy dinner at your hotel, and then spend the rest of your afternoon and evening at leisure. Day 2: Aqaba (B)After a relaxing breakfast in your hotel, the day is yours to spend at leisure. The Red Sea beaches are one of Aqaba’s biggest draws, and the waters – with their impressive coral reefs -- hold untold appeal for underwater enthusiasts. So, perhaps take a stroll to the beaches to bask on them at leisure, or even dive or snorkel independently (own expense).Alternatively, check out some of Aqaba’s sights, like the ruins of Ayla – an intriguing old church near the city marina – or Aqaba Fort. The small (yet impressive) castle is said to have been built around the 16th century, when it was used as a pilgrimage stop for pilgrims making their way to Mecca.Return to your hotel for dinner and then spend your evening doing whatever you please. The streets are pleasant for a nighttime stroll, and many of the outdoor coffee shops (with chairs on the pavement) stay open until late.Day 3: Aqaba – Amman (B)Check out of your hotel after breakfast, and then spend your morning at leisure. Shopping in Aqaba is fun, so maybe head down to the souq (market) to haggle for souvenirs such Dead Sea skin-care products or jewelry. Meet your guide at the pre-arranged time and return to Amman by minibus. Your experience finishes with a drop-off at your Amman hotel.
