Jordan is one of the top places in my list at the moment, but I want to get it right (which basically means ensuring I have time to see everything I want there).
The main reason I wanted to visit at first was Petra:
But now that I’ve started doing some research I’ve realised there’s much more to see: a day trip to the Dead Sea is a must, and visiting Wadi Rum must be a surreal experience:
HOW TO DO IT:
- Go: there are plenty of flights from the UK, but tickets are not cheap at around £400 return.
- Weather: avoid the summer as temperatures get way too hot.
- Travel around: buses and taxis are the easiest way to travel around in Jordan, are not too expensive, and can be booked when you’re there.
- Stay: Petra Guesthouse is the best accommodation in Petra in terms of location, but don’t forget to spend a night in a Bedouin tent for a unique experience.
