Dilemma: Abu Simbel, Sharm El Sheikh & Wadi Rum VS Jerash & Amman?

Jump to last reply

Because of unreasonble time limits (I hate that I have to work for a living) we do not have enough time to do everything we want in our 9 day trip to Egypt and Jordan. After Cairo/Giza, we must make a choice. Either:

1. To Luxor for 2 days, then fly to Cairo, then Amman, spend a day in Amman then Jerash, then Petra;

OR

2. To Aswan, Abu Simbel, only one day in Luxor, then 2 nts/1 day in Sharm El Sheikh, overland to Wadi Rum, then Petra.

The first one is appealing because it is more time in Luxor and we also get to see Jerash and Amman. However, we love the idea of swimming/snorkeling, and our son wans to see Abu Simbel. What to do? Emphasis is on history and culture.

I'd love to hear some opinions on this dilemma. If you're planning to just scold me for not finding a way to do all of it, please save it! I know!
