Slowly nestled in the Middle East between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, Jordan awaits travellers with the sweetness of a mint tea. Whether rocky or desert, green or sandy, Jordan's landscapes are distinguished by their diversity. Going to Jordan is the guarantee of a beautiful trip surrounded by canyons, cliffs and natural arches, the panoramas of Wadi Mujib, the "Grand Canyon of Jordan", to the fabulous desert of Wadi Rum, watching the sunset on the hill of the ancient fortress of Machéronte. The opulent civilizations that have followed one another in these extraordinary lands have left behind architectural wonders whose memory will accompany you for a long time thanks to your tourist guide on Jordan: the hidden city of Petra, the last stop on the quest for the Grail for Indiana Jones, Jerash, the Jordanian Pompeii, or the castles of the desert east of Amman. And to recover from all these emotions, what could be better than diving into the ever-warm waters of the Gulf of Aqaba?

The must-see places in Jordan

When to go to Jordan?

The best times to travel to Jordan are in spring and autumn, when the climate is mild throughout the country. The Ramadan period is not ideal, but not completely discouraged either, as is the case for other Muslim countries. While many services and restaurants in Jordan remain closed all day long, signs indicate those that are still open for tourists, non-Muslim expatriates or Muslims travelling without fasting.

How to go to Jordan? Our advice & tips

  • Organised trips
  • Going alone
  • Moving around

The main tourist sites being relatively concentrated, the agencies propose tours accompanied by a week which make it possible not to make a break without wasting time (Petra, Aqaba, Wadi Rum, Jerash, castles of the desert, descent on the Dead Sea...). Others organize smaller scale hiking and trekking tours in Wadi Rum or the rainbow valley.

Several companies allow you to travel to Jordan. Flights to Amman are direct and many are direct. We will then count about 4h30 of travel. Royal Jordanian Airlines also provides a route to Aqaba. It should be noted that the price variation depends on the company borrowed but, above all, on the time required to book. To obtain attractive rates, it is essential to do so well in advance. Remember to buy your tickets six months before departure!

There is only one domestic air link between Amman and Aqaba. Otherwise, the most economical way to travel in the country is by bus or minibus. They travel all over the country and no village is left out. Large agglomerations are connected by regular services, which is not the case for small towns in sparsely populated areas, such as in the east of the country. Unlike buses, minibuses do not leave at a fixed time, but when the vehicle has filled up with passengers.
