Hi Dao,

I was in Jordan and visited a friend living there.

I found that Amman did not have so much sightseeing to offer. So you can spend half day in Amman and then use the other half day to travel south.

Amman - 1/2 is enough
Petra - 1 full day (first, take the camel and then afterwards take the donkey!! You will not regret it. It is a lot of fun and you save a lot of time instead of walking. You will love it, and it is really exicting)
Dead Sea - 1 day you can arrive in the morning and spend the rest of the day there. That is nice.
Wadi Rum - yes, you need one full day. If you have the time, you should book one night sleeping in the desert with dinner! A lot of fun too.

We drove both highways, but I don't really remember anything impressive. So actually, better to take the more convenient road.

If you want to make this round trip and it fits in your budget, I definetly recommend to take a rental car rather than bus or taxi. Once you are somewhere, it is difficult to find a taxi to bring you back:-)

My proposal:
1 day Arival in Amman and do sight seeing in evening (if not too late)
2 day Morning drive to Dead sea and stay 1 night in hotel
3 day Morning drive to Petra and spend one day (hotel?)
4 day Morning Drive to Wadi Rum and spend half day looking around
Afterwards drive to Aqaba and fly out of Aqaba (possible?)

Then you will have seen all the important points in 4 and half days:-)

Have you left for Jordan yet? If not, I suggest you have a look at Ruth's Website at www.jordanjubilee.com. It has always served me well on 4 trips to Jordan.

Travel Tips for Amman

walk at night in the streets of Amman

by mfas2000

Amman is a safe country. In the summer (May-July), hiking in Abdoun, swifieh and other western side of the city is enjoyable. You will find couples, young pepole and families walk and strid along the streets

Eye-contact...

by THLIN

In Jordan, most of their female residents are rather copnservative. They try to avoid making contact to unfamiliar persons even eye-contact, let alone talking to strangers.
So I suggest male travelers NOT to look at any one of female Jordanians unless they talk to you first.
But for little girls, it should not be a problem since your guesture is out of kindness.

Ammarin Bedouin Camp

by Gurry

This must be one of the more interesting places to stay at in Jordan, I missed a trip there with some friends who were really impressed and loved the scenery, the wildlife and just being in the desert.

Let's be honest, there are 3...

by AldenM1

Let's be honest, there are 3 'real' clubs in Amman for foreigners. Early in the evening head to Abdoun Circle and the Bigfellows Irish Pub. Bad music, expensive (but good) food, and lots of people standing around checking out everybody else.
As the evening wears on, you will eventually migrate to the Old Irish, which is in the basement of the Dove Hotel between Third and Fourth Circles. 'The Old' features more bad music, cheap beer, friendly bartenders, and a dance floor the size of a pocket handkerchief on which 200 people will be dancing. While they dance, they will be ogled by the dozens of single, sleazy men crowding into the back room. In theory, the pub is only open to couples, but these guys generally 'know somebody' or just look less sleazy on the way in. This is Amman, and this is the expat set -- you can wear whatever you'd wear to a club in NYC. In fact, some people wear less! Just be aware of the fact that you will have to leave eventually, and possibly take a cab or have to walk, so you want to think ahead about appropriate dress.

Driving.

by Openseas

Petrol is very cheap in Amman so hiring a car is a fabulous way to travel through Amman. Drivers drive on the ride side of the road. You do however, need an International Driving license / permit to drive in Jordon.
