About Jordan

Jordan, an Arab nation on the east bank of the Jordan River, is defined by ancient monuments, nature reserves and seaside resorts. It’s home to the famed archaeological site of Petra, the Nabatean capital dating to around 300 B.C. Set in a narrow valley with tombs, temples and monuments carved into the surrounding pink sandstone cliffs, Petra earns its nickname, the "Rose City."


Points of interest









Getting around

Amman and the surrounding cities are relatively small, and most places of interest - hotels and restaurants - are well-known. Street addresses are rarely used - mail is delivered only to post office boxes located at neighbourhood post office centres, while only the larger street names are commonly known. When giving directions, therefore, people will usually tell you the area or a nearby landmark (a large hotel, ministry building or supermarket, for example) and specific instructions from there. This works more efficiently than it sounds.

Amman itself is built on seven hills, or "jabals," each of which more or less defines a neighbourhood. Many jabals once had a traffic circle (roundabout) at their peak and, although most of the circles have now been replaced by traffic lights, the junctions are still known as 1st Circle, 2nd Circle... 8th Circle. Other Amman neighbourhoods were once separate villages, now swallowed up by the expanding city.

One final word...If you're having trouble finding your way, don't hesitate to ask a passerby, as most people will be delighted to help.

Meal rates

In Amman and Petra you will find a wide variety of prices, depending on the place and the restaurant standard. In a local restaurant downtown, a meal will not cost you more than 10 Dinars, whereas in big hotels, prices might go up to 20-30 Dinars and even more depending on the dishes and drinks your order..

As for the Dead Sea, your only option is to eat at the hotel where you will be staying. Most hotels are located in one area and you will not have many options of dining out (outside the hotel).
