This place is definitely worth a visit! It's just 30 minutes away from Amman. This place is well preserved and you should take a few hours to look around. Bring comfortable shoes with you, sunblock and a hat against the sun.

The extensive Roman ruins in Jerash are smack in the middle of the city. It's easy to find and there is a ton of free parking. Admission is included in the Jordan pass, which you must buy if you are spending at least 2 days...More

An outstanding well preserved ancient ruins. It is just amazing that only a small percentage has been excavated so far. A must see. Vendors are annoying.

Long haul out of Amman is well worth it. Go on an organised trip and the guys at the gate tend to leave you along. Take no rubbish from guys wanting paid for toilet roll by taking a pack of Handy Hankies. Wear good quality...More

This place is vast. You'll be walking on sand and uneven stones so good, sturdy shoes are a must. There's little in the way of shade, so a hat, water, and sun block is essential. On the off chance you forgot your water, there were...More

Hi there is nowhere to leave your luggage. Perhaps book into a cheap hotel and leave it there - the carpark was full but not attended by security.
