Places to visit in Jordan – Part 1

This blog post is a collection of different places in Jordan that you must visit! Jordan might be  small but got a lot to offer!

I lived in Jordan for 17 years but never once tried to discover it as a traveler! I walked in the same street a million times but never knew or noticed the story behind it! For that I decided that now is the time to be a tourist in Jordan!

Mountain Nebo

 

Where: Almost 40 min away from Amman, In Madaba.

Entrance fees:
0.25 JD for Jordanians.
2 JD for foreigners.

The story behind monut Nebo is what made it so special! Thanks to Zain Burçak my trip down in history was amazing!

Mount Nebo is where Prophet Moses was granted a view of the promised land (Palestine), the whole place is build to honer Prophet Moses!

For me, the modern sculpture of Moses was just breathtaking! It represent Moses 2 wonders (miracles in Islam).

You can see the structure of the old church which was destroyed in an earth quick and the preserved old church mosaics which shows the life they used to live.

 

Petra

 

Where: 3 hours away from Amman! near to Ma’an.

Entrance fees:
1 JD for Jordanians
50 JD for foreigners 🙄

Recommendation:
Petra is one of the new wonders of the world! and it sure deserve to be one.
Amazing and beautiful ruins that will take your breath away!!

Do know that you will have to walk a lot!!! so prepare those sneakers.

Secret place (not so secret): The Khubtha Trail
on the right side of The Theatre after the Treasury, up in the Mountains you will see big ruins of an old city called the court, if you pass the court and put it on your right side, you will go on a trail called The Khubtha Trail which will lead you to see the The Treasury from above!! spectacular.

You can also check my trip in Petra one of the World Wonders

Wadi Mujib

Where: near to dead sea, between two mountains with water passing through. 

Entrance fees:
18 JD for Jordanians or resident permit holders.
21 JD for foreigners.

Recommendation:
First of all you have to know that its not easy! It was very hard!! Omg it is an adventure but a dangerous one! If you were like me ( a person who never been hiking and weight 50 KG or more :P) then I seriously recommend having a guide!
I literally almost died twice because I wasn’t well prepared! Watch videos and ask for more details thats how you will enjoy it more!! 😍

Jordan is waiting for you!! And I am waiting for you! if by chance you are planning to visit this amazing country then let me know!!

Part 2 will be up soon!! Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook and Instagram!!
