Avid traveller Hayley Anderson shares her amazing journey through the mountains and Valleys of the stunning wonders that Jordan has to offer. Here’s a day by day guide during her time in Jordan.
We booked 2 nights at Sydney Hotel whilst in Amman, the best location and reasonably cheap.
That evening we drove up to the Amman Citadel for sunset over the ruins. Up top, there are an incredible 360 views of the city (or should I say Legoland).
We stayed one night at the Dead Sea in the cutest little chalet (Mujib Chalets). The chalets are away from the tourist hot spot and sit directly in front of Wadi Mujib canyon.
Swimming in the Dead Sea is the craziest experience!
Our next day was spent driving up into the mountains towards the Dana Reserve.
We decided to stay at a smaller and MUCH cheaper camp (Al Nawatef Camp) than the well known Rummana campsite in the heart of the Dana.
DAY 4, 5..
We booked a hotel close to the entrance of the site called La Maison Hotel.
By chance, we arrived on a Thursday, which was one of three nights in a week in which Petra by night is performed.
Do keep in mind the cost of the site is rather expensive but worth every penny.
I will always remember my very first glimpse of the Treasury, shining bright in all its glory as it peeped through the canyon walls of the Siq.
Wadi Rum! This dessert is seriously like no other.
I recommend the Wadi Rum Life Camp as it had great reviews and offered an amazing price.
DAY 7 & 8..
We spent one night at a hotel (Red Sea Dive Centre) that was super close to the water & offers snorkel gear for all its guests.
We swam 50 meters straight out the front of the beach and found some pretty amazing coral and sea life!
Seriously in love with this country and all the people! I hope that my story inspires more people to add Jordan to their list.
