Travel Diary – 2 Weeks in Jordan

maybeyoulike_travel-jordan_1

Some of you already followed our adventure through Jordan on Instagram and I got a lot of questions, about what to see, where to stay and so on. 😉 So here is our travel guide through Jordan! We stayed 13 days and if you ask me, that’s perfect. 
Our highlight was definitely Wadi Rum for climbing… we’ll come back for sure. There’s so much to climb and hike, it’s amazing. Besides the desert, Petra was also really, really amazing to discover and the main reason I wanted to go to Jordan. The funniest experience was “swimming” in the dead sea. I’ve been there before, during a trip to Israel with my Grandparents, on the other side. But couldn’t remember this funny feeling… just really weird and fun. I recommend staying in one of the fancier hotels, next to the dead sea, since the public beaches are full of trash.

Talking about trash – expect lots of it. I don’t know what it is, but the people in Jordan have no sense for nature and animals. It’s sad to see, how they don’t care… Trash is everywhere. If you go into a Wadi (not the touristy ones like Mujib) you will find so much trash and nearly made me cry. Anyway… beautiful nature, though.

Aqaba was not really our thing, besides the nice underwater world. We spent two nights there and left early to go to the Dana Reserve – totally worth it. We walked through canyons and enjoyed the views. All in all it was a really amazing holiday – we’ll come back, but probably just to Wadi Rum. 😉


DAY ONE – Amman | DAY TWO – Dead Sea | DAY THREE – Wadi Numeira | DAY FOUR – Petra | DAY FIVE TO EIGHT – Wadi Rum 
DAY NINE TO TEN– Aqaba | DAY ELEVEN TO THIRTEEN – Dana Reserve


HOTELS
Amman: Amman Pasha Hotel (downtown, everything you need & special flair)
Dead Sea: Mövenpick Resort & Spa (fancy 5 Stars, awesome breakfast, expensive dinner)
Petra: Seven Wonders Bedouin Camp (near to “Little Petra”, cute private tents with a really nice landscape around)
Wadi Rum: Fox Camp (basic camp with breakfast & dinner, hot showers and a private tent, I’ll give you the contact, if you want)
Aqaba: Darna Village Beach Hotel (it was ok, near to the water, but yeah… I guess they don’t like female tourists?! It was weird.)
Dana Reserve: Dana Tower Hotel (amazing food and such a lovely experience, a little bit “hippie-style”)


GOOD TO KNOW
Jordan Pass – buy it! It includes the tourist visa and most of the tourist attraction entries
maps.me – maps and navigations system, all workling offline! Saved our butt…
