JORDAN QUESTIONS

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be travelling to JORDAN, by way of ISRAEL, and would deeply appreciate any help you could give to respond to my questions.

Immediately before going to Amman, Jordan, we will be leaving from Jerusalem and plan on traveling thru the West Bank to the Allenby Bridge to cross into Jordan. We have read from others to take a taxi from the Damascus Gate to the border. Does anyone think that I should be concerned about our safety, going thru the West Bank? Would anyone suggest a better way of going by land from Jerusalem to Amman?

Desert Castles, Worth the time, or a waste of time, to give up a day for?

Petra. Would staying at the Movempick Hotel near the entrance to Petra be the wisest choice, money considerations aside? Are there any hotels that would be better?

I am crossing back into ISRAEL at Eilat where we are staying one night. How much time should I allow for Aqaba, and what should I do there?

Jordan, "on the road less traveled" would anyone have a suggestion as to do something different from the "usual" in starting from Amman down to Aqaba?

Thank you.
