Jordan is an extraordinary Arab country and one of the gems of the Middle East. This country has the best combo of beautiful landscapes, well-preserved ruins, extremely friendly locals and a rich history and culture.
The most popular tourist attraction and a must-visit during all Jordan tours is definitely Petra, but there are many other places worth seeing. If you ask me, some cool activities worth adding to your Jordan itinerary include roaming the Wadi Rum desert, a visit to Amman and floating in the Dead Sea.
The national currency of Jordan is the Jordanian dinar (JOD). 1 USD is the equivalent of 0.71 JOD.
The official language spoken in Jordan is Arabic. But if you’re heading to the cities, don’t be surprised to hear good English spoken around you.
Jordan is a predominantly Islamic county, so most Jordanians are following a Muslim religion - around 92% of the population.
If you want to enjoy some comfy sightseeing, then the best time to visit Jordan is during spring and autumn. But if you just want to relax in a pool resort, then summer is a good choice as well.
Yup, you’ll need a visa to enter Jordan. But the good news is that you can easily buy it on your arrival at the airport or at the border and it will be valid for one month.
Although you aren’t officially required to have any vaccinations to enter the country, it is recommended to tick these two for your own safety: Hepatitis A and Typhoid.
It is recommended to buy a prepaid SIM card upon your arrival in Jordan. You can choose from at least three different providers, but most travellers go for Zain.
