Jordan Itinerary Р What I would have done differently:

Aqaba worked as a place to relax and as a base for exploring Wadi Rum. However it was a real pain to get to Petra and back – nearly two hours each way. And it was not easy to find ways to get there that suited. In hindsight I would have gone from Aqaba to Petra and stayed there for 2 nights. Petra and Wadi Rum are the highlights of Jordan. Aqaba is great for relaxing and as a base for Wadi Rum but there is little else to do there.

I did visit the Royal Diving Club in Aqaba which was good and went snorkelling on the Red Sea. If you like snorkelling and diving you may want to consider staying as long as I did in Aqaba – otherwise I would reduce the time spend there. The odds are your hotel in Petra will have a pool anyway so you can relax there as well as exploring.

I didn’t go to Amman as there didn’t seem to be alot there. However I have read that things have moved on in Amman in recent years and that there are some good restaurants etc so it may be worth looking at adding a day in Amman into your schedule. Again you could remove another night in Aqaba although the trip will then get a bit full on in terms of time spent moving around. It may be better to add one more night to the itinerary.
