    Traveling While Black

    My experience in Jordan was amazing. Had a wonderful time in both Amman and Petra. I spent 5 days in Amman which was enough time to tour. I used a personals driver , he was so much help! In my opinion is best to find a driver because is cost effective and you’re able to visit a lot of places without being rushed.

    I visited the Dead Sea, which was an 1 hour away from Amman. I was a little disappointed that I was not able to experience the salt build up as I was told is a seasonal. I was giving a hard time over at the Dead Sea because of language barrier so make sure you have someone who can translate.

    I did visit the River Jordan which is 27 min away from Dead Sea , I recommend it as it’s a good experience.

    The best part about my trip was my stay at the bubble luxotel in Petra. At night you can see the stars glittering through you room. And when the sun rises it shines to beautifully thought the room. The jacuzzi was essential after a long day of touring and just kicking back and relaxing. The customer is A+ !

    I visited Petra the treasury, rented a car and drove to the end and walked about 5 hours so that I can experience the mountain and the rocks. I ended up arriving at Ad Deir, took some really nice pictures and continued the journey. I wanted to have a different experience from everyone and I did. I do recommend doing this if you can take the walks and the heat or you can rent a donkey for $40usd.

    Overall my trip in Jordan was amazing and I plan to go back because I really want to experience the salt build up.

    Traveling While Black

    First time for me in Middle East, and can’t wait to go back! Had a seamless, amazing and mind blowing experience in Jordan. While on this trip we visited Amman, Petra, & the Dead Sea. The highlight of this trip was definitely Petra. Petra was really out of this world. It was unbelievable. We spent 5 hours & we barely saw all that there is to see. You need a lot of time though to properly explore Petra. Allow at least 1 day, and even then you will have not seen everything. I do not recommend the horse ride to the entrance as it is just 300 yards and the horse handles are a pain (want more money). The only disappointment was that within Petra there were sales folks EVERYWHERE. After Petra we then went to the Dead Sea and spent the night there. We stayed at Hilton Dead Sea Resort & Spa which was amazing. Paid $100 for the night. Loved every thing about Jordan, there’s definitely so much to see and do, we needed more time.

    Jordan!!! The crown jewel of the Middle East. I will stick to Amman with this review. Visa on arrival for around 40JOD=56USD. RENT a car. 1. Hit up the Dead Sea. The drive is less than an hour from the airport. I stayed at the Kempinski Dead Sea because I was treating my mom but the Dead Sea Marriott is more budget friendly. If you just want to visit and not stay, there is a visitor area for around 15JOD or less. Put on the mud, let it dry, and then rinse in the dead sea. Bring a book for a more authentic gram photo vs the dried out newspaper that is available. Jerash is a short ride outside of the city and is a must. 10JOD to enter. old Roman ruins, columns and theater. Very cool spot. Amman Citadel is another must visit. 10JOD I think. The Hercules Temple is here and you can see the Roman theater in town from here. The Roman theater is a must see. After visiting you can eat at Restaurant Anwar Makkah which is a short walk from the Roman theater. Other food options are Lucca Steak House, Fatty Dabs Burger Shack, Cattleman Joe’s, and Shaman. All good spots. Off the Record for drinks. It is not too far from the four seasons. Stay there, The W, Intercontinental, or The Boulevard Arjaan by Rotana next the Abdali Mall. Cool mall to walk through and shop. Notable spot not in Amman that is HIGHLY worth it. Wadi mujib!!!! Water canyon. DM me if you have questions on instagram at elcidjarhead.

    My sister and I recently visited Jordan. We flew there from Israel which took about 30 mins literally. Prior to arriving, we bought the Jordan pass online for 70JD (~$98US) since it included the Jordan visa, entrance fees to the major attractions in Jordan. The pass is cheaper than paying for these things individually; however, in order to get the pass, you must be staying at least 3 nights in Jordan. We decided to stay in Amman (mainly because the international airport is there). Amman is beautiful and very developed. We stayed in West Amman (the newer and more affluent side of the city) but it was mainly posh luxury hotels there. If you’re on a tight budget, or wants to be in the middle of everything and be near the citadel, stay in Old Amman. Overall, where ever you choose to stay will be a win because the Jordanian people are some of the most hospitable people I have met. Everyone says “welcome home! Jordan is your second home.”
    From Amman, we booked a two days tour with Jordan Private Tours. This tour took us to Petra, Wadi Rum, Red Sea and Dead Sea. Petra was beyond beautiful. In Petra, we rented a guide, but in hindsight I wouldn’t have. After a few minutes, I ditched the guide and wandered off with one of the local Petra guys. These guys know the best picture spots and they are beyond helpful and friendly. He helped me to capture some amazing photos. It sounds scary, but always trust your inner guts on judging people. After Petra, we went to Wadi Rolm yo catch the sunset. This was spectacular and seems out of this world. We spent the night in camps and Wadi Rum in order to experience the Bedouin lifestyle. This was really the highlight of my trip. I cannot explain it fully, you’ll just have to experience it to know. The following day, we explored Wadi Rum then went to the Red and Dead Seas. Red Sea was so-so, but Dead Sea was awesome. The water is salty so do not get it in your eyes under any circumstance, but it does feel like oil on the skin. Definitely indulge in the mud bath too. Your club will love you for it. I even got some mud to take home with me :-)
    Jordan is a bit expensive. The food was typical middle eastern cuisine. Lots of cucumbers, tomatoes, falafel, shawarmas etc…but you’ll be able to find western foods in West Amman. They have all the major American food chains there and many hotels have an international restaurant.
    My experience in Jordan was superb! I felt safe there and will definitely revisit. I especially want to visit again in order to do the Wadi Mujib Trail, but that is only open during the summer months.
