Driving Tips

Jordan Country

Jordan's main highways are generally well-maintained but be cautious of other drivers, especially after dark when some locals travel without headlights. The main route is the Desert Highway which connects the main cities including Amman and Aqaba. Watch out for the ever-changing speed limits which are strictly enforced. Drive with extreme caution away from the main highways where mountain roads have steep hairpin curves.

Top 4 architectural sites

  • Al-Khazneh or The Treasury at Petra
  • Amman's Roman Amphitheatre
  • The Jerash Ruins
  • Al Beidha

The archaeological ruins at Petra are a must-see for anyone visiting Jordan. Al-Khazneh is one of the most elaborate temples in Petra's ancient Nabatean Kingdom City. This elaborate structure is carved out of the sandstone rock face. The 6,000 seater Roman Amphitheatre at Amman dates back to a time when the city was known as Philadelphia. Today it is still used as a concert venue. The city of Jerash was destroyed by an earthquake in the 8th-century and it remained buried under sand until its rediscovery in 1806. Visitors can see remarkably complete remains dating as far back as the Bronze Age. Al Beidha is a UNESCO World Heritage Site of Neolithic archaeology.

Top 4 Natural Sites

  • The Burdah Bridge
  • Wadi-al-Mujib
  • The Dead Sea
  • Siq at Petra

Visitors can enjoy a breathtaking hike to the Burdah Bridge at Wadi Rum. Here a seemingly fragile rock bridge sits 300m above the ground. For those who dare to stand on the top, it makes a fantastic photo opportunity. The Wadi-al-Mujib is an underground river that runs into the Dead Sea. Today the area is an important UNESCO Biosphere Reserve full of wild plants, mammals and migratory birds. No visit to Jordan is complete without a dip in the Dead Sea. Lying 400m below sea level the high saline content of the sea makes floating easy while the mineral-rich black mud is used for beauty and therapeutic treatments in resort spas. Siq or Siqit is the main entrance to Petra. This natural geological fault worn smooth by water erosion provides a narrow gorge of 1.2km that ends at the Al-Khazneh. It provided the perfect defensive entrance to the Nabatean settlement.

Important Film locations

The stark landscape of Jordan and the ruins of Petra lend themselves naturally to film settings. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977) and the Mummy Returns (2001) are just a few of the films that have used the spectacular ruins of Petra. Wadi Rum or the Valley of the Moon has an orange landscape that attracts science fiction film-makers. Much of David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia (1962) was filmed here while Ridley Scott's The Martian (2015) turned it into Mars. In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Wadi Rum became Jedha.
