If you want to dig a little deeper about this impressive country to plan your holiday accordingly, then please keep reading.
Best Time to Visit Jordan
The peak time to plan a trip to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is between the months of March and May. Visiting Jordan and making the most of it involves being outdoors throughout, and so, the Spring season serves the perfect temperatures for you to loop a sling bag around your neck, wear a pair of the most comfortable shoes you own and hop between Jordanian attractions.
If, however, Spring does not suit your travel plans, then the next season to visit Jordan would definitely be Autumn, which stops over at Jordan between the months of September and November. People who have been plotting for years to take the plunge at Aqaba, and literally so, these months are the best ones. This is not only because the water is soothing during the season of Autumn, but also because you will see marine life of Jordan in its magnificence and abundance during this time of the year.
Though considered an all-year travel destination, Jordan can be pretty hot during summers, preventing you from floating in the Dead Sea or gallivanting through the capital city of Amman. Visiting the Jordan valley during sweltering months of Summer may be a bad idea, and therefore isn't recommended.
How to Reach Jordan
Once you have decided to visit Jordan, every way, easy and hard, opens up to make the dream a reality for you! The two major travel choices, that is by air and by road, are all available to reach Jordan. There are five airports in the country, of which the Queen Alia International Airport, 35kms from Amman, serves as the main airport. In Amman, this international airport welcomes several airlines from around the globe, such as Emirates, British Airways, Air France, Qatar Airways, and Lufthansa, to name a few. Royal Jordanian Airlines, which is the national carrier, brings people from 43 destinations into Jordan.
For those travelling to Jordan from other middle eastern places like Jerusalem or Syria, availing the bus service to transverse the picturesque landscapes by road is a good option. If you are travelling from the borders of Syria, Saudi Arabia, or Israel, then you can even go for cab services available there. The railways have been suspended in the area since 2006, due to their dysfunctionality.
Where to Go in Jordan
If you are planning to head off to Jordan for your next vacation, then it is clear to us that you are someone who likes exploring places off the beaten road. Keeping that in mind, here's our list of extraordinary places in Jordan that your travel boots should make it to:
Ready to live out your very own version of Arabian Nights? The place in Jordan from where you should start this incredible journey, would definitely be Amman. The capital city of Jordan, Amman is the perfect cocktail with ancient history as its base, and smooth hints of modernity as the ultimate flavours.
For those who are stirred most by history, Jebel al-Qala, the highest hill in the city, has ruins waiting to bare stories carved into their stones. On top of this hill lies the Citadel that will hold your imagination by its hand and walk you down time with its 8th century Umayyad Palace and the historic Roman structure, the Temple of Hercules.
While enjoying the history and architecture scene in Amman, you should also take out time to be a part of its blossoming art space. If you find yourself in the city in Summer, then missing out on the Amman Summer Festival would be a big mistake. The art fiesta is a burst of energy, of epic dance and music filling the entire King Hussein Park, transforming it into a festival goer's nirvana.
And for those who are fans of the original retreat, one of the most ancient homes of mankind, Iraq al-Amir, with olive groves separating its caves, is the place to be when in Amman, Jordan.
Imagine floating in the saltiest and the lowest ocean of the world while surrounded by wise old mountains and sand dunes the colour of earth. You wouldn't be wrong to assume that you have reached paradise, but to be more accurate, you would have landed in the Dead Sea soaking up the Arabian sun.
Jordan nestles the Dead Sea on its east while Palestine does the same in the west. When in the Dead Sea, floating in its often deemed magical waters, is an activity that you must participate in. While some believe the water can heal arthritis and osteoporosis, others marvel at how the mud by the sea is a potion for skin allergies. Whether these beliefs are true or not can only be settled by testing the waters for yourself. A pro-tip for this activity: The Dead Sea is ten times saltier than the other natural water bodies of the world, and therefore, do not shave any part of your body at least 48 hours before jumping in.
It is often said that a traveller looks back on her journeys with rose-tinted glasses, but once you visit Petra, the Rose City of Jordan, your memories will literally be coloured pink. The multi-coloured rocks and the Nabatean architecture of this city make it an archaeological treasure that people from around the globe flock to see.
If Petra is the gem of Jordan, the Egyptian-art-inspired Obelisk Tomb is Petra's jewel. Situated between the Petra Visitor Centre and Siq, you will see four obelisks and a weathered human figure in the middle. It is believed five people were buried here and each obelisk and the central figure represent their funeral. This architecturally-gorgeous monument will lead you to the door of the Siq, welcoming you to Petra. A 1200-metre journey and stories galore await your arrival.
While Petra is the showstopper of your Jordan delight, Wadi Rum is unmissable for its rather unexplored beauty. With sun setting every evening behind it red-sand desert, Wadi Rum is nature's ultimate gift to a photographer who dreams in landscapes. If the skies allow it and you are lucky, then you can even see the Red Sea from up above the Jabal Umm ad Dami, the highest peak in Wadi Rum.
The Nabateans have inscribed their history as rock drawings and carvings all across Wadi Rum. The most famous of these imprints is the Khazali Canyon, named after a criminal called Khazal who ran through the chunk of Jabal Khazali mountain right up to summit while being chased. When he reached the top, he had nowhere to go, and so jumped off the cliff, but landed unharmed. Apart from this marvellous story, this canyon is also home to some of the most unique reptiles and desert mammals that you will ever lay your eyes on.
The Holy Land of Mount Nebo, where Christians believe Moses saw the Promised Land, is mostly visited by archaeologists, cattle, and someone who has lost their way. But that is exactly what adds to the beauty of this place. For those with a pictorial imagination that can infuse history into the ruins to make them magically come alive, Mount Nebo is a hidden treasure on a road not taken by too many travellers.
Climbing up Mount Nebo would mean making it to the place from where you can see panoramic views of Moses' Promised Land. If that was not enough, on a clear day, you can even see breath-taking sights of the Jordan Valley as well as the Dead Sea from up here. Imagine being at the summit of this historic mountain, away from the worries of the world looking at some miraculous sights, now isn't that a holiday in the true sense of the word!
Would you like to see some astonishing glimpses of Rome almost 4000km away from Rome? If yes, then Jerash has to make it to your list of Jordanian enchantments.
A day's trip from the capital city, Amman, Jerash is one of most well-preserved Roman ruins located out of Italy. If arches and temples evoking memories of Rome is your idea of beauty, then you are not alone. Admirers of distinctive architecture make it a point to travel to Jerash when in Jordan to explore the bygone era of exuberance of the Middle East.
Food in Jordan
Let the Levantine aromas and scents of candied fruits take over your senses when walking along the streets of Jordan. Amman, the capital city, is a treat with its sweet and spicy delicacies leaving you drooling and wanting for more. Whether it is the crumbling deliciousness of baklawa, or the cheesy gooey pastries locally known as kanafeh, Amman knows perfectly well how to tease a connoisseur's taste buds.
A traditional Jordanian cuisine involves the tastiest falafels your tongue will ever taste. It also includes a large platter of Mansaf, meat coated with flatbread that is as thin as paper served along with a mound of fragrant rice. Here's a fun food fact that foodies might already be aware of: Mansaf is the national dish of Jordan and is a regular in a Bedouin kitchen. Food does not have a language, it transcends every boundary, and that is why Mansaf is cooked in a variety of ways in Jordan, some recipes coming out of Israel and some even from Iraq.
Have you ever experienced the elements of drama in food? If not, then you must try the Maqluba when in Jordan. Best defined as a comfort food, Maqluba is a cake of upturned rice with meat chunks buried in it. Each spoon of Maqluba will tell you how the rice not only hides lumps of meat in it, but also the feeling of home. Once you have relished the Maqluba, be sure to taste the Ottoman import, one of the tastiest lamb preparations in the world, the Shawarma. Sweep its richness with a piece of moist pita bread and close your eyes as you savour its sizzling taste for a long time.
Things to Do in Jordan
Touring Jordan with Thomas Cook India means being a part of a whole lot of activities, both cultural and adrenalin-thumping fun. From visiting the most spectacular archaeological artefact, the Roman Theatre, to sleeping in Bedouin camps under a starry night, here are some of the most fascinating things to do in Jordan:
Adventures of the desert
Get ready for an adventure of a lifetime by going on a desert safari in Wadi Rum. Chasing a sandstorm in a jeep isn't all that this desert has to offer; here, you can even experience life on Mars by staying overnight in a dome that is built like a spaceship. Another life changing experience that you ought to add to your bucket list is camping in woollen yurts under stars in Wadi Rum with the Nomadic tribe, Bedouin.
A horseback ride through mountains
To get the most stunning views of the Rose City of Petra, get on top of a horse and let the animal escort you through this ancient city. Travellers who have been to Petra exclaim in joy about the experience of seeing the rugged and gorgeous terrain of Petra while riding a horse. This is definitely unmissable!
The ultimate Seagasm at Aqaba
Visiting Aqaba and not scuba diving is like visiting Jordan and skipping Petra! The only Jordanian coastal city, Aqaba boasts of a vast marine life, with more than 500 coral species calling its waters home. Apart from the corals, you are also likely to stumble by a tank at the bottom of the Red Sea. A Lebanese freighter is another treasure you will catch sight of.
See the Roman Theatre
Built under the rule of Antonius Pius, one of the most peace-loving Roman Emperors, the Roman Theatre was built between 138-161 CE. The theatre is not only spectacular-looking, but is also designed in such a way that the sun never meets or hurts the spectators. You must not miss the chance of being one of the 6000 people that the steep yet comfortable stairs of this theatre can house.
Lose your way while admiring the beauty of Little Petra
While the antique city of Petra takes up most of the limelight, Siq Al Barid or Little Petra doesn't fail to impress when given a chance. From some of the most ancient settlements ever to have existed to landscapes that leave you breathless, Little Petra on a camel is a must when on a Jordanian journey with family.
