Input on brief Jordan itinerary

Jump to last reply

After 3 weeks in India I'll be heading to Jordan for a few days before moving on to Israel. I land in Amman at 9am on May 5, and ideally I'd like to be in Israel for Yom Ha'atzmaut on May 10th. I'm a 22-y.o. woman traveling solo and on a budget, and this will be my first time in the Middle East.

May 5 (thurs) - land in Amman, afternoon trip to Madaba. I'll probably be pretty wiped out after lots of early morning transit, so I'm considering staying in Madaba so I can take the town at my own pace. The upside to staying in Amman instead would be cheaper accommodations & possibly more options for getting to Jerash the next day.

May 6 (fri) - day trip to Jerash, spend night in Madaba/Amman.

May 7 (sat) - bus to Petra via King's Highway, afternoon/evening at Petra

May 8 (sun) - full day at Petra

May 9 (mon) - cross border, head to Eliat, Tel Aviv, or Jerusalem (undecided)

Any input on this itinerary would be great! Especially advice on Madaba vs. Amman for my first 2 nights (1 night each is also an option). Also, is a full day set aside for Jerash too much? Thanks!
