Also known as the 'Lawrence of Arabia', Jordan is a spectacle of a destination. Jordan is packed with grand structures and hints of old civilisations. Petra, a city in Jordan, is said to be over 2000 years old. Apart from the old civilisations, another important aspect is the biblical evolution of the society that is evident in some of its structures. Hospitality is a very important part of the culture and thus, everywhere you go, you will receive a very warm welcome.
Jordan is divided into four regions: Northern Jordan, King's Highway, Eastern Desert and Southern Desert. As the names suggest, Northern Jordan marks the Northern region of the country and Eastern and Southern Desert regions mark the respective regions of the Wadi Rum. King's Highway is the region that extends from Madaba to Petra. It has been named so after an ancient trade route that followed the same path.
March-May and Mid-September to Mid-November is the best time to visit Jordan
The best time to visit Jordan is during the spring season (March to May) which is also the peak season and is considered ideal for visiting this Arab country. The spring season is the best time to view the nature of this desert country. The maximum high temperature at this time is around 20 degrees Celsius. It does rain in March, so enough moisture is added to the air. The spring also brings colour to the land. Due to the pleasant weather, tourists can visit sites like Petra and Amman, which get extremely hot during the summer months. Another great time to visit Jordan will be during the Shoulder season of the Autumn months, which lasts from mid-September to mid-November. Many people also like to visit Jordan during the summer months, which lasts from June to August. But it gets excruciatingly hot at this time. If you want to visit a nearly empty Jordan, then you can target the start of December when the winter isn't full blown. The Winter months are Offseason in Jordan, and not many activities are possible for the visitors. People who are looking forward to visiting the coastal town of Aqaba can do so throughout the year and enjoy by the sea.
Picturesque locations. Great hospitality. Amazing architecture.
The threat of terrorist attacks. Strict law enforcement. Not very safe to visit obscure areas in cities.
History buffs. Architecture enthusiasts. People with a keen interest in cultural history.
There are a variety of stay options available depending on your budget, ranging from rooftop cottages to luxurious hotels. Hospitality is a key feature of the culture in Jordan and thus, be assured of a good treatment wherever you go. Another great way to experience Jordan is in camps. The camps are of Bedouin style and are a great alternative to the conventional hotel stays. You can also rent private apartments for the duration of the stay.
