What To Expect When Visiting Jordan

Jordan is one of the most underrated countries ever that I tell everyone to visit. Jordan is also one of the most peaceful countries in the Middle East region. If you have the opportunity to hit one of the many reasons to visit Jordan, I HIGHLY suggest it – between Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea, and Petra there is something for every person. Middle Eastern food is amazing and Jordanians are beyond nice (especially to tourism). Tourism contributes to their economy more than anything else so they love to have tourists! Additionally, if you add Petra to a long Israel trip – it is the perfect one or two day trip from Eilat – you don’t even have to stay over if you don’t want to! The climate is always great, Jordan has a very mild winter, which makes it the perfect destination in any season – though get ready for summer as the heat is no joke!


Jordanian Dinar. About $1 USD is equal to about .70 Dinars.


Arabic. For the tourist spots (like Petra), people will speak English (because they want you to buy things)!
