In case you missed part 1, you can check it out here Places to visit in Jordan – Part 1!


Where: About half an hour away from Amman.

Information about the place:
Salt is one of the oldest and beautiful places in Jordan, As my brother says there are houses that is older than 100 years old, they are unique in their brown- yellowish color.

You can visit down town in Salt and follow the path of the historical places there. It is known that Salt look like Nablus in Palestine. My friends from Nablus actually feel like home there!!

You have to smoke Narjeela in the iconic 60 street or if you want a more cozy place then Beit Aziz is the man.

Dead Sea – Jordan

Where: about one and a half hour away from Amman.

It the deepest and lowest point on Earth, 306 Meters to be exact! and it is 427 below sea level!

Dead Sea is famous with it’s high concentration of salt ( 8 times more than the ocean). Because of those high levels, sea life doesn’t exist there, you can’t sea fish or even allergens. However, people from all around the world come to benefit from it’s healing powers.

Paint yourself with the cool Black Mud that will make your skin more awesome!

You also can reserve in one of those 5 stars hotel for the ultimate experience, you can also check Wadi Mujib and Hidan while you are there.

Umm Qais.

Where: 2 hours away in Irbid, close to Tabria Lake.

Entrance fees:
0.25 JD for Jordanians
2 JD for foreigners ( I think) I entered as a Jordanian citizen.

Information about the place:
The 1st thing to notice when you enter the city of Umm Qais is it’s black bricks, appearently it’s one of the few cities that used black bricks for building.

From Umm Qais you can see the meeting point of Palstain, Syria and Jordan. Also you can visit Tabria lake from there! The view was epic and was amazing to see the three countries at the same time!

The question that I always ask when I visit a new place is: Was it worth it?
And for Umm Qais I found that It is not the most beautiful place in Jordan but the history it holds compensate the lack. I would recommend to read more about the place before you visit!

I hope this post helped you to enjoy this beautiful and small country, Like and share this post!! let me know if you have ever been to any of those places!!

You can find me in all of Social Media, come and say Hi!!
