A progressive monarch, breathtaking scenery, ancient ruins and hospitable locals make this tiny country one of the most unforgettable destinations in the Middle East. Travellers on flights to Jordan will land in the capital, Amman. Home to more than a million people, the city of Amman provides a good base for exploring the rest of the country. One of the highlights of this sprawling capital is the Roman Theatre in the Downtown area which was built in the 2nd century AD and is still used as a backdrop for summer performances.
History buffs booking flights to Jordan should plan a few extra days to visit two of the most famous archaeological sites in the country: Petra and the ruins of Jerash. The ancient city of Petra was once the capital of a 3rd century BC Arab dynasty – Nabateaeans. Forgotten for nearly a thousand years the city became home to wandering Bedouins and only became famous in the 1980s after appearing in the movie Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade. Today the stunning city carved out of sandstone is visited by nearly 3000 people a day. The well-preserved Roman ruins at Jerash are another extraordinary attraction. Built nearly 7000 years ago the site nicknamed the “Asian Pompeii” contains churches, a cathedral and a synagogue all with detailed mosaics.
Spring and autumn are the most pleasant times to book flights to Jordan when the sky is clear, days sunny and temperatures are moderate.
July and August are the hottest and driest months of the year, especially in Amman and the Jordan Valley, and in the desert areas, with temperatures more than 36 degrees Celsius.
The winter months from November to April can be very cold, particularly in Amman, with snow, rain and wind, but there is little rainfall in the desert regions and in Aqaba, which makes a pleasant wintertime resort.
There is only one route available for domestic flights, which is between Amman and Aqaba.
Hiring a car is probably the easiest way to travel – though make sure you fill up with gas before leaving the big towns as stations are few and far between. Anyone with a valid driving license for their own country – which they must have held for at least a year – is allowed to hire a car. Driving is on the right. All signs are in both Arabic and English. Brown signs mark spots of tourist interest.
Buses are available for routes between the main tourist destinations. It is probably worth paying a bit more to travel in one of the air-conditioned buses, aimed at tourists.
