My partner and I are travelling to Jordan in a couple of weeks. We are 25 and 29 years old from Malta - our travel interests are generally architecture/history/cuisine. We plan on renting a car in Amman from Monte Carlo and driving down to the main sites. We'd like to get the longest drive out of the way at the beginning of the trip (Amman-Aqaba), and drive back to Amman with stops along the way.
Our itinerary is looking quite busy so any advice would help;
Day 1 Monday
I know that people can leave and return Jordan thru KHB with a single entry visa on arrival. However, I have booked a short tour in Jordan and they offer us a free visa (tourist collective visa)upon arrival at Amman airport. We do want to know whether this visa also allows the same routing (i.e. in and out thru KHB without getting another visa).
Can anybody share some experience with us?
I am in Jordan until the 21st of July and was hoping to spend a long weekend in Petra (2 days) and hopefully a day your of Wadi Rum. If anyone would be interested in a shared tour to lower the cost that would be fantastic! Or perhaps travel to Petra as well. I have seen the JETT buses which would seem to work fine if I was only going to Petra, but less easy with for Wadi Rum.
I am 20 years old and from Scotland. Would be so excited to travel with anyone. Please let me know :)
I'm booking a tour in Wadi Rum for 2 weeks' time for myself and my friend, with jeep your, camels, trekking, and overnight stay for 2 nights. A tour guide has offered me a choice of 3 options for the trekking part: Burdah Rock Bridge, Jebel Khasch, or Um Adaami. I wondered if anyone had advice on which of these you would recommend going for? My friend and I are relatively fit and healthy for trekking, and it is our first time in Jordan so weare looking for a good taste of Wadi Rum.
Is Jordan a good place to visit in February? we are looking to do a 7-8 days trip to Jordan in the first week of February. Please let us know if February makes sense or not.
Thanks in advance
Has anyone gone the route of going from Amman up to the Jordan River Crossing, across into Israel, then up to Capernaum by bus from Beit She'an? I could go the natural route across to Jerusalem and then take a direct bus, but I figure crossing into Israel at the Jordan river crossing will be quicker red tape wise, is more directly en route to Capernaum, and makes the trip more interesting as a circuitous route rather than the there and back scenario from Jerusalem. It also saves me the hassle of…
I am travelling in late August around Jordan, and I am planning to book a car. Does anyone know the road conditions? Is a city car good enough?
I will do Amman, Jerash, Wadi Dana, Petra and Wadi Rum (in Wadi Rum I will book a camping and a jeep tour).
My friend and I have a trip to Jordan booked from 16th - 25th June, starting and finishing in Amman and travelling around the country by hire car to visit all the main sights.
Given the current situation, I wonder whether any travellers/hosts who are already in Jordan, or who know the country, would have any advice for us as to whether it is safe and feasible for us to go ahead with the trip? It appears that the protests have been peaceful so far, but I realise it is a potentially escalating…
Hey guys, I'm going to be heading to Jordan for 1 and a half days in November. I want to go down to Petra. I'm flying into Amman on a friday night at 6:20pm (assuming no delays). What I can't decide on is whether or not to stay in Amman that night and take the JETT bus to Petra and back on Saturday or if I should hire a taxi to take me to Petra Friday night, stay outside Petra that night and then bring the JETT bus back to Amman on Saturday night to catch my flight Sunday morning. Option 1…
