FAQs about visiting Jordan

Blog – Insdie jordan
Is Jordan Safe?
Jordan is very safe.
Jordan is one of the most liberal nations in the region. Even during these times of hostilities between neighbour countries, Jordan remains one of the safest places in the world to visit. Because Jordan relies mainly on its tourism industry for revenues, the government takes tourism and the safety of tourists extremely seriously.
What to Wear?
While Jordan is a progressive Muslim country it is still conservative at heart.
The general rule of thumb, for women, is the less skin showing the less attention you will draw to yourself. Tightness, on the other hand, is not as much of a faux pas as showing skin in this culture. It’s recommended to pack layers. During the fall and winter seasons it can go from hot to cold in an instant if you find yourself in the shade as well as in the evenings.
What to Take ?
  • Comfortable lightweight walking boots.
  • Lightweight, loose-fitting clothing appropriate to warm conditions.
  • Sunhat or head dress that also covers the neck.
  • Sunglasses.
  • Sun protection lotion.
  • Water flask.
  • Spare camera batteries, you’ll be taking a lot of photos!
Where to Go?
In a week you can see the highlights of Jordan but two weeks or more would be much more leisurely. There are many places that we would have loved to stay longer. Read More in Jordan Sites

Do I Need to Speak Arabic?
The national language of Jordan is Arabic. But most Jordanians speak English, especially in urban area such as Amman.
French and German are the second and third most popular languages after English. You might encounter some Caucasian and Armenian languages because of the vast number of Caucasian immigrants that arrived during the early 1900s.

What is the weather like in Jordan?
Jordan is a year-round destination – but despite its small size, you’ll find wide variations in climate, often reliant on the topography: Amman, Petra and Wadi Rum all lie well over 800m above sea level, Dana and Ajloun are even higher (up to 1500m), whereas the Dead Sea lies 400m below sea level. The same January day could have you throwing snowballs in Ajloun or topping up your tan on the Red Sea beaches. Read More in Weather in Jordan
Can I Drink the Water?
Although Jordanians drink water freely from the tap, you might prefer not to: it is chlorinated strongly enough not to do you any harm (it just tastes bad), but the pipes it runs through add a quantity of rust and filth you could do without. All hotels above three stars have water filtration systems in place, which help. Bottles of mineral water, both local and imported, are available inexpensively in all corners of the country. A standard 1.5-litre size costs roughly JD0.40 if you buy it individually, less if you buy a six-pack from a supermarket or grocery. Expect to pay more in out-of-the-way places – JD2 or so inside Petra. Check that the seal is unbroken before you buy. Inexpensive diners always have jugs of tap water (my aadi) on the table, but in restaurants waiters will quite often bring an overpriced bottle of mineral water to your table with the menu – which you’re quite entitled to reject. Recycling facilities for plastics are few and far between.
How’s the Food? Is it Vegetarian Friendly?
Jordanian food is influenced by its neighbours such as Lebanon and Palestine and it’s delicious. Meals start with many small dishes called mezze mostly consisting of salads and dips served with bread .. Read More in Food and Drink In Jordan
