Wadi Rum, Aqaba in December questions

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Jordan in late december and plan to stay in Petra, Aqaba, Wadi rum and Amman. Here are my questions for anyone who has done this:

1. We were told the weather is really cold at the Dead sea in late December so better spend one day in Aqaba (red sea) instead. If so, Kempinski Hotel or Movenpick Hotel in Aqaba?

2. I have read that it is very cold in the desert in Wadi Rum at night in December. Is this true and if so how cold? If you have stayed there in late December, would you recommend it and which camp. We are looking for something really exceptional, not too many people around and clean beds and great guides.

3. Due to limited number of days in Jordan we were thinking of driving from Amman around 6 pm (upon arrival in airport from Cairo) and drive directly to Aqaba and work our way backwards towards Amman from where we return to the states. Is this advisable?

4. We have left very little time to sightsee in Amman. Did you enjoy sightseeing in Amman itself and how long would you suggest. We have about 1/2 day there.

Thanks for any help.
