Why Jordan: Jordan is best known for the remarkable city of Petra, however there are so many other fascinating sites. Some of the country’s best sites can be found in Amman, its capital, including the Roman Theatre, and Citadel, whilst the incredible Roman ruins of Jerash are a must-see. The deserts of Wadi Rum are incredible to explore, as is famous crusader castle, Kerak, whilst floating in the salt-filled Dead Sea is a truly unique and bizarre experience.
Climate:Like many of its Middle Eastern neighbours, Jordan has a hot, dry climate; with long, hot, dry summers and short, cooler winters. Its climate is influenced by both the Arabian Desert and the subtropical humidity of the Mediterranean. The hottest time of year is between June and September where temperatures average between 32-35°C during the day. December, January and Febburary are the coolest months with temperatures in the mid-teens.
Combine with: In the central Middle East, Jordan is surrounded by a number of other fascinating countries including Israel and Egypt. Our 15 Day Egypt & Jordan tour (page 6 & 7) visits all the major sites and explores both these destinations in detail.
Getting there: Major Middle Eastern airlines Emirates, Etihad and Qatar all fly into Jordan’s capital Amman, or alternatively Royal Jordanian Airlines fly into each of these hubs, including Cairo.
