Jordan Transportation

  • Buses

    Amman Transportation

    If you are flying Royal Jordanian (or not), you can get to the airport or from the airport which is about 30 minutes away for JD 3 one way. Buses leave every half hour from about 5 in the morning to 10 at night - every half hour from city terminal (Royal Jordanian office) near 7th circle to the airport. They drop you at the departure level (Level...

  • Taxi

    Petra Transportation

    If you go to Petra from Eilat, don’t buy expensive tours. You can save money by doing it yourself. One day tour from a hotel cost $150 per person. You can easily take a taxi at the border or order it beforehand for the same price. The driver will wait for you for 4-5 hours and will take you back to the border. That is what we did: • arranged for a...

    Jordan Transportation

    Jordan – at least for those used to the Western European transportation systems - is not blessed with excellent public transport. As such, and especially having decided to stay in an off-the-beaten track location and having little time, we have decided to hire a car. None of us being confident in our abilities to cope with the Middle Eastern...

    Amman Transportation

    As we found out that Jordan had a lot to offer for a visitor and we did not have that long time, we decided to hire a private driver for 4 days. Looking around some trave forum I git reccomended this Mr. Joe and so I contacted him (and a few more). Our trip was: day 1 Madaba Mount Nebo and Bethany. Day two Amman to Petra Day 3 Petra to wadi Rum and...

  • Camels

    Petra Transportation

    You'll find camels on offer outside the 'treasury' and down near the monastery steps. Camels can take you between those two points, should you wish. Price will be negotiated with the camel-driver (at least one of whom looks remarkably like Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow in 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and thoroughly plays up to that fact). Camels are...

  • Queen Alia International Airport

    Amman Transportation

    Queen Alia airport is about 20 miles away from Amman itself. Although there are good, fast roads leading to it do allow plenty of time to get there. Amman traffic is extremely heavy and congestion is always possible, and normal at commuter times. Rain or snow (both of which occur in the winter months) will obviously slow the journey down even more,...

    Petra Transportation

    Petra is the main highlight of Jordan and it their most famous tourist spot. There are many tours coming to and from amman to petra and most are via Big Tour Buses and some are on private tour vans and private tour cars. The Drive from your amman hotel to Petra takes 4 1/2 hours (225 kilometers or 140 miles), including the obligatory 30 minute stop...

  • Serveece - Shared Taxi

    Amman Transportation

    To travel to Lebanon and Syria from Amman, use the Service cars (shared taxis) on either side of the street at Abdali Bus Station. Step into one of the offices and ask for pricing. Cars leave when they are full, unless you would like to buy additional seats for an earlier departure. These cars are faster than buses and just as cheap.

    Petra Transportation

    The Horse Carriages of Petra are an icon in their own right, the horse carriages are the main mode of transport from the entrance to Petra up to the Front of the Al Khazneh (the treasury buidling) moreso for the elderly and differently abled people visiting petra. the ride (one way) will cost JD 15 per person and only 2 persons are allowed inside...

    Jordan Transportation

    Getting busses leaving Amman for other towns was one of the biggest frustrations I had. The travel guide (a very good guide in general, published – 2006) I used, was unfortunately inaccurate. It seems that most bus stations have changes location during the past year or so. It was much easier getting a bus from the town to Amman. It is possible...

  • Donkeys

    Petra Transportation

    NB Donkeys and mules are strong, hardy beasts. That does not mean they can or should be expected to carry hugely overweight visitors. 12 stone is any donkey's maximum tolerance (smaller donkeys can manage less) so if you weigh more than that you are simply cruel if you expect a donkey to carry you any distance, let alone uphill. Donkeys and mules...

    Petra Transportation

    Horses are available to take you from the main site entrance down to the start of the Siq, a distance of around half a mile. The cost of the horse ride (20JD) is theoretically included in your ticket but it's important to realise that the young Bedouin and B'dul men who work with the horses (and who will walk or ride with you) are not the owners...

    Jordan Transportation

    Along some highways, like the King's Way near Wadi Rum, you will see camel crossing signs. You might think that will make a cool picture (it does), but don't overlook that these signs are for real! I was driving 110km when suddenly I saw on the road ahead a camel right in my lane, and 4 behind him about to cross into the road. These beasts move so...

  • Animal Transport

    Petra Transportation

    Of all the animals at Petra I think the camels have it best. I know that other cultures/countries have different views on animal welfare and I probably am at the other end of the scale. Throughout our two days there I never saw any animals being offered any water and donkeys and horses seem to be on a diet of just whole oats/barley which appear to...

  • Royal Jordanian Airlines

    Petra Transportation

    We arrived to Aman by plain with Royal Jordanian. Puntual and with good service. We took the same company to go from there to Delhi after. When you arrive to the airport you have to get the VISA to get inside the country., 10 J.D. Just there you will find a change money office. By the time we went , July 2004, the change was 100 euros = 81 J.D.

    Transport around Amman is very cheap by taxi, the only thing to ensure is that the meter is reset once you hail the taxi. Most journeys around the city will cost you no more than 2 or 3 JD. We found the drivers to be very honest, one even reset his meter after getting lost on route to our hotel. The expense comes when you are travelling outside...

    Of course we chose the easiest way for us which was by walking down the canyon and back. It is not any physical hard demanding, any normal person can do the trip on his own pace, just better to have comfortable shoes and remember to have enough water with you.
