The ancient city of Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, is a must-visit. Its impressively preserved rock-cut architecture, especially the iconic Al-Khazneh, makes it particularly popular with history and architecture enthusiasts.

Wadi Rum

This stunning desert region is noted for its striking red sand, and dramatic rock formations. A night in a Bedouin camp under star-lit skies promises an unforgettable experience.

Dead Sea

Known for its therapeutic properties, the salty waters of the Dead Sea provide a unique and healing experience. Relax on its shores, take a dip, or indulge in a mineral-rich mud bath.


If sun, sea and sand is what you’re after, the coastal city of Aqaba is a paradise for divers and snorkellers with its pristine coral reefs and warm waters.

Where to Stay

Wondering where to set up base on your Jordanian journey? From the buzz of city life in Amman to the tranquillity of the Dead Sea and the rugged beauty of the desert in Wadi Rum, we've got you covered.

For a family holiday

Amman is an excellent bet for a family break with a good mix of attractions that kids and parents alike will enjoy, from ancient ruins to interactive museums such as the Children's Museum Jordan. Equally, Aqaba is another family-friendly destination with beautiful beaches and a range of water sports that will entertain all ages.

For a couples holiday

For a romantic getaway, Wadi Rum is hard to beat. Enjoy a magical sunset jeep tour, followed by a candle-lit dinner at a Bedouin camp under the starry desert sky. If you prefer relaxation, book a luxurious resort by the Dead Sea and indulge in a rejuvenating spa treatment.

For a holiday with friends

Amman makes for a great destination to chill with friends, offering great food, nightlife, and historical sites to explore together. Alternatively, Aqaba offers excellent opportunities for adventure sports like scuba diving and snorkelling, and the chance to wind down afterwards on its beautiful beaches.

When to Visit

Jordan's climate makes it a year-round destination. However, spring, from March to May, is arguably the best time to visit, when the weather is pleasantly warm and the countryside bursts into bloom. Autumn, from September to November, is also a good time to visit, offering a similar climate and mild evenings.

The summer months from June to August can get extremely hot, especially in desert areas like Wadi Rum and Petra, but the Red Sea town of Aqaba remains a popular seaside retreat. Winter (December-February) can be cooler with occasional rainfall, but it provides a different perspective, especially seeing Petra and Wadi Rum dusted in snow.
