Introducing Jordan

Jordan's top attractions Petra, the Dead Sea and Wadi Rum are all amazing in their own right. The fact that these world-class sites are located just a few hundred miles from each other make Jordan a must-see travel destination. The country's excellent infrastructure and friendly people add to its attractiveness. You can experience Jordan in just a few days, and combine it with a visit to neighboring countries, or spend 2+ weeks exploring history, nature and culture. Browse our Jordan tours to get inspired before connecting to one of our local Jordan specialists. 

When is the best time to visit?
Jordan is a year-round destination, but peak-time for touring Jordan is spring (March-May), when temperatures are still warming up and wildlife is at its finest. Autumn (September - November) is also popular.  Both seasons see milder temperatures, making hiking and sightseeing alike more comfortable. Read more details about the best time to visit Jordan.

Top places to explore
In addition to visiting Jordan's top 3 (Petra, the Dead Sea and Wadi Rum), we highly recommend taking the time to experience Jordan more deeply, through activities such as sharing a meal with a local family, staying at a bedouin camp, and trekking through a wadi (desert canyon). Find more ideas here.

Getting Around
Jordan is a compact country with a great highway network. Most travelers opt to hire a private driver to explore its amazing sites. Read more

Decent hotel, but room was a little tired and also we had issues with toilet flushing - it did not have enough power and water so it clogged at some point. Every time we had to flush we were concerned it might get clogged again (we would prefer to relax in vacation not getting stressed each time we had to go to toilet).

Good hotel, but a little bit too crowded - especially at breakfast, In 2 days we were not able to get a capuchins at breakfast - we asked but they said they don’t have - for a 5 star hotel I don’t think this is acceptable. Another issue was the beach - it was not well prepared - especially the entrance in the water - based on the layout there is a lot of work which needs to be done to bring the beach at 5 star hotel level.

Tips for future travelers

I suggest to go to another hotel such as Movenpick.

Luxury in the middle of desert! Very clean even if remote location and high turnout of travellers (most travellers stay 1 night) makes keeping cleanliness difficult. The only suggestion I have is to find a way to provide Internet access (I know it is extremely difficult due to remote location, but maybe a solution can be found.

Too many beggars - government should not allow them inside Petra site. You have to constantly fend off or hassle with beggars. The site is spectacular, but experience is marred by beggars and dirtiness of certain places - we tried to enter one of the caves carved in the mountain and there was an awful smell of urine.

Everything was great about this except the front desk staff, some of which were downright rude.
