Jordan Bucket List Travel Ideas

  • Petra

Why is Jordan considered a top bucket list destination?

A visit to Petra is on most traveler’s bucket lists and deservedly so. It’s an extraordinary historical and archaeological ancient city that dates back to the 2nd century BC In addition to Petra, an overnight in the magical desert of Wadi Rum beckons. There are Roman ruins and historical sites aplenty and there is even the opportunity to float in the Dead Sea on the Jordanian side. Plus, Jordan has a slice of the marine-rich Red Sea coast.

What are the top bucket list activities on a Jordan vacation?  

Most visitors go to Jordan for a visit to Petra with a guide and a horse or camel ride to get from the main entrance to the start of the ancient city. No trip to Jordan would be complete without a stay in the beguiling desert of Wadi Rum. Spend a night in a tented camp and lose yourself to the magic of the desert. Ride a camel, go on a 4x4 jeep tour and dine under the stars. Include a stay in the coastal city of Aqaba where scuba diving or snorkeling in the Red Sea might even check off another bucket list item. Float on the Dead Sea and traipse around biblical sights and Roman ruins.
