On a border crossing at King Hussein Bridge (Allenby Bridge) going from Amman to Jerusalem is it best to have everything packed away into a suitcase and go across with nothing but passport,money,and clothes on my back?
Naturally i would rather keep a bookbag on me with valuable things like camera/laptop/etc. however i assume that that would be taken away to be x-rayed as well. (or are there smaller x-ray machines near the metal detectors similar to how it is in airports?)
Im sure there has never been any problems just dont like the idea of my stuff being carted away in what i hear will be pure chaos.
How are shared taxi costs figured. i have read its 40USD per shared taxi. does the driver fill up his taxi and split that amount per person?
