I have 12 days in Jordan starting 12th November I would like spend 3/4 days in Petra ,a day and night in Wadi Rum .I am a solo female backpacker on a budget,is it possible to travel by local buses to all major attractions?should I buy the Jordan pass?
Thanks in advance.
I would welcome ideas on places to drive in Jordan. All my research indicates there are no issues with driving, but you may know unique places to see that, only by driving, can be so seen.
Thank you for your comments.
Hi! I am trying to plan next summer ( northern hemisphere) holiday.
I am keen to go to Jordan for a short trip but when is really the best time to visit Jordan? And how long do you think I need to enjoy some good tourists spots?
Thanks for your help!
Will be traveling to Jordan, Oman, and Iran next spring.
What are the places "not to miss" in Jordan?
I am planing to travel Jordan next weeck, but in the present moment, is It a safe country? There is risk of terrorist attack?
With the current situation in the midle east, is safe travel to Jordan?
I am going to Jordan at the end of February for 12 nights. I wish to visit Petra and also head to Aqaba to enjoy a few days of diving. Should I head to Petra first then down to Aqaba or go down to Aqaba first and then head back to Amman via Petra? How many days should I spend in Petra? Are there any other places that I really should see whilst in Jordan?
I heared that there is a bus from Aqaba to Tafilah, can we take a cab from there?
How is the bus? and which company operates it?
Hi everyone! I am going to Jordan in the first half of October. I found out that in these days they will celebrate the Islamic New Year's Eve. Has anyone experienced it while in Jordan? Which are the travel limitations? Are taxis and buses available for tourists?
Moreover, I was wondering on Friday which are the limitations too.
Thank you very much!
I am from the united states supposed to leave tomorrow to go to Jordan. I do not have a visa because I was told I can get that upon arrival at the queen alia airport. I called the airline I am using because I read that when traveling internationally if the country you are visiting requires a visa an agent will check for the visa before departure. Is this going to pose a problem because i was planning on getting it at Queen Alia Airport.
Dead sea sun bath and mud treatment for psoriasis for a month on a backpackers budget: any suggestion / recommendation where to stay?
Hi - I will be visiting a friend of mine soon and had a question about transportation for Petra.
I want to visit Petra and do the Petra by night. However, I will not be staying overnight so we need transportation from Amman to Petra and then back to Amman.
On Petra's website I did see a bus service, JETT, but they leave from Petra every night at 5pm. The Petra by night ends around 10 to 10:30pm.
Anyone who has been there or lives there, do you have any suggestions on what transportation service we could use?
Thank you in advance!
Coming from the U.S. - is it easy to navigate through the airport to get your visa? Where in the airport do you go to get it? Thx
I am planning a trip to Jordan either in September or December. Please help me understand what the weather would be in both the months.
My wife, her best friend and I will be travelling to Jordan. We are looking to book a single hotel room with 3 beds. We are all Australian citizens and not Muslims. We do not want to be illegal, offend the local people. But we also want to travel relatively comfortable, safe and be economical We are asking in our situation
Really appreciate your advice. Thanks
So my beloved Australian Football team just drew Jordan away in the preliminary World Cup Qualifying rounds.... We also have Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Bangladesh (Not exactly the group of death i know :) )
Would it be worth a trip or don't bother?
I have ~5 days next week that I must leave here (Pakistan, via Dubai) and Jordan is coming up as the closest, cheapest, easily accessible, interesting option that I haven't been to yet that also does not require pre-issued Visas, or is in a no-fly zone right now..
But only having possibly ~5 days, it's too much to do in too little time. If time was not an issue, I'd hit up the following:
Umm al Jimal **
Qasr Azraq *
But with ~5 days, I would need to drop out the 2nd tier (*) and 3rd tier (**) and Wadi Rum due to distance.
Comments or suggestions? Am I over zealous?
Normally I'd drive myself, but my drivers license expired last week and may cause obvious complications.
Hi, I am thinking to go to Jordan with my family ( 2 adults 1 teenager) to Jordan to do the biblical tour. I have searched a couple of website to find how much it would be but they don't put any price on it.
I know it's depends on what type of tour, season, etc, but does anyone know roughly how much I should think to pay for the family to do the basic guided tour?
We don't need to go to Petra, but if it can be included that will be great.
Thanks for your help!
Would special fees be available for students, teachers, elderlies, handicaps etc for entrance ticket in Jordan ?
Which one is better for exchange of JD? Thanks.
I want to buy one from Jordan. I will be in most of the touristic places but guess it's easier to get one in Amman? Could people living there give me an idea where to get one? I wish to do a quick shop only. Thanks.
My partner and me we're going to travel to Israel and Jordan from December 27 to January 5 .
After the last incidientes ( attacks , riots ... ) we're pretty worried. Has someone recently visited these two countries and can tell us how the situation is and if it's possible to travel safely?
We must decide soon what to do, so we will really appreciate your help.
Thank you very much .
I think the weather would be nice, however, would shops closed or transport limited like Shabbat?
I plan to visit Jordan from Dubai after X'mas, and would like to get suggestions for how to organize a five day itinerary. I'm interested in a mix of biblical and classical, and do not intend to spend any time in Amman at all.
Here are the places I have in mind:
Wadi Rum- I'd love to spend a night in the desert!
Are these places do-able on a five day trip?
Can anyone suggest driver/guide or tour company I can contact for details?
Hello I wish to check how to go from Amman to Jerusalem. Would someone know:
1. There is no charge of departure for same day arrival and departure to/from Jordan?
2. Only the North Border (Sheikh Hussein Crossing Border) opens year round and 24 hours.
3. What are the charges of departure for North Border/King Hussein Bridge/South Border?
4. How much does it take from Amman airport to North Border by taxi? How long does it take?
5. If I finish Petra and Wadi Rum, I should take the South Border and go to Jerusalem? Or should I go back Amman first and take the North Border? Or the hotel/tour agency can help arrange the transport for me to go to nearby border?
I have the following plan and questions:
(Day 1) arrive Amman; (2) Madaba→Mt. Nebo→The Dead Sea (overnight); (3) Dear Sea to Petra; (4-6) Petra; (7-8) Wadi Rum; (9) Wadi Rum to Amman; (10) Amman to Jerash; (11) Amman to Kerak Castle; (12-13) Amman (mid-night plane)
1. Most people take the King’s Highway from Amman to Petra, enroute Madaba, Mt Nebo, Dead Sea. If I want to spend a night at Dead Sea, is there other transport available as it seems that keeping a taxi driver to stay a night there is expensive.
2. Is day tour to Jerash/Kerak Castle possible? I wish to know if Amman can be the base.
3. If just choose between Jerash/Kerak Castle, which one is more worthy?
4. Any other places I can add on top of the above, if the transportation is not too costy?
my friend and i are going to jordan on december 2014 - we plan to see the following sights: amman, karak, petra, dead sea, back to amman.
What is the situation like for transportation? is public transportation ok? I mean, are there long distance busses like in every other country?
thanks for the help and advice,
I am slightly confused of the location of Wadi Mujib Reserve - is it different from Wadi al Mujib?
Questions on the Wadi Mujib Reserve:
- is it near the stretch of resorts?
- if I would just like to hike the first 30 (min) to get to some viewpoint without getting into the gorge and water is that possible? (Prefer to stay dry)
- is there an entrance fee?
I am aware there is an official site, but I find it lacking information on day trip there.
Hope someone can advice. Thanks!
I would like to know if Feb is a silly choice to staying over night in Wadi Rum and floating on Dead Sea? Would Nov make it a better season? thanks.
