When to visit
March was a for us a great option. A bit rainy in the north, very hot in Petra, in Wadi Rum and at the Red Sea, and a bit cold at night, but it worked for us and the temperatures are not extreme. Also in spring you get to see a lot of flowers in bloom even in dessert.
Jordan is a colorful place, with yellow stone, red sand and orange rock carved by humans and nature alike. It is definitely a place to see, but expect crowds and tourists in almost all places you will go. It is a place where you will always be saluted with "Welcome to Jordan", even if you are in a remote and isolated area, this seems to be the universal greeting. The King Road, the scarce of water, the history so well preserved the tasty vegetarian food an dthe welcoming people will all make you understand and appreciate even more this land.
Start from Queen Alia International Airport Amman
We flew in with Ryan Air, but there are a lot of options to arrive
In the photo you can see the car on the Kings Highway looking spectacular in the sunset light.
Payment for the mosque
they take you to get dressed
King Abdullah I Mosque
Our first stop was at the Mosque. I loved the blue roof and I liked the inside as well. In order to go in as a woman you need to take a long black or brown dress on you. You have at the entrance a place where you can take this dress and return it when you exit
As you enter, you pass through this monumental arch of 21 meters height. The Arch was erected in honor of Roman Emperor Hadrian visit to the city then called Gerasa, in the winter of 129–130. Imagine this almost 2000 years old construction from times of glory.
