Jordan & Petra

Very early stages of looking at but thinking of visiting here early next year.

Hopefully can use my Avios and companion voucher for the flights and hotels seem reasonable. Plan would be trip to Petra and Jerash then spending some time in Amman sightseeing too, staying about four days in total. Ive wanted to go for a long time and think since I saw Petra in the Indy movie as a kid!

Trying to do it a bit cheaper ourselves DIY as hopefully we will be heading on a road trip back to the USA later in the year. Anyone been and have any tips or recommendations?

You'll love it. I'd also seen Petra in the Indiana Jones movie. It was a tour from the cruise we were on. Wear comfy shoes as its a lot of walking, uphill all the way on the way out although you could haggle for a camel ride back and keep an eye on your belongings too. They can go missing in the blink of an eye.

It has been on our list for a while, but we have ruled out that part of the world altogether for the time being.

Its truly wonderful - I went a few years ago on a day trip from Sharm. No tips other than the comfy shoes and layers depending on the time of year. Have a great time.

Decided to go for it and have booked the flights. Used our Avios and Companion voucher which saved a good chunk off the flight cost and brought it down to a price I was willing to pay.

Just seeing if best to base ourselves in Amman and day trip out to places or arrange a total private trip meeting us as we land but will see how prices compare.

Ill do a trip report if its of interest to anyone else and happy to hear any other recommendations if anyone else has been.
