In January & February, Jordan experiences heavy snowfall and strong winds in the inland regions such as Amman and Petra. Nighttime temperatures may drop to -8°C, making camping in the desert quite uncomfortable unless you have proper heating.

 

In March, the country transitions from the cold winter to spring. It is a relatively less busy time in Jordan, which makes enjoying activities in Petra, Wadi Rum, and the Dead Sea pleasant. Temperatures are only slightly higher, and nights are still cold, especially in the desert.

 

The spring season officially arrives in April, and it is the best time to visit Jordan. The temperatures range between 15 to 30°C, and the weather is clean of dust due to the winter rains. From the northern cities to the desert, the countryside offers spectacular views.

 

 

June to August are not the ideal months for Jordan tours. In July, the temperature may rise above 40°C in Amman, and the heat becomes unbearable as you travel to the South.

 

Fall, September-November, is the shoulder season in the country, which makes it one of the best times to visit Jordan. The hot weather of summer doesn’t cool down until the end of September. Around mid-October, the country experiences rainfall, which makes nature bloom again. The dry lands turn green, offering a perfect opportunity to enjoy the views.

 

December might be the best time to visit Jordan if you are looking to avoid the heat and the crowds. The temperatures are not yet too cold, and the rain and snowfall are not dominant until January.

Jordanian food is delicious and full of flavour, sharing a lot of similarities with neighbouring Middle Eastern nations. Dishes such as falafel, hummus, lamb, mezze, and kebabs can be found in every market stall, village, or city!

 

Searching for unique and authentic dishes can often be overwhelming if you are not a local, so here are a few must-try dishes to get you started in Jordan: Baklava, Falafel, Moutabel, Galayet Bandora, Tabbouleh, Manakish, Mujadara, Mensef.

The best time to visit Jordan is from March to June. In spring, temperatures are moderate across the country, and the weather is dry.

 

It is an ideal season for sightseeing in the cities, the desert, and the valleys. Nature is fascinating around this time, with wildflowers blooming in the landscape. The highlights of Jordan, such as Petra, Amman, and the Dead Sea are perfect for exploring in mild weather.

Jordan is an ideal destination for those seeking cultural knowledge, spiritual enrichment and sights of marvel. Officially known as the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, it is a gem of the Levant region and home to fascinating ancient history.

 

While predominantly an Arabic nation, Jordan truly values the diversity of its
population’s ethnicity and religious beliefs, providing cultural rights to all of its citizens. There is a strong tolerance and appreciation for cultural differences in Jordan, contributing to the nation’s stability and peace.

 

The desert-dwelling Bedouin population have a distinct and noteworthy culture. Living the largely nomadic lifestyle across barren landscapes in Jordan, their traditions have been passed down for centuries.

 

More than 92% of Jordanians are Sunni Muslims and approximately 5% are Christians. The majority of Christians belong to the Greek Orthodox Church. As Jordan is predominantly an Islamic country, religious traditions are strong with spectacular mosques signalling the call to prayer five times a day and Ramadan widely observed each year.It is important to keep these religious beliefs in mind when packing for your trip and determining how you plan to dress when visiting Jordan.

 

Please also keep in mind that when visiting religious sites, appropriate attire is required. It is recommended to pack at least one set of modest clothing that covers both shoulders and knees, to be worn when visiting mosques and other religious complexes. A headscarf for women is necessary when visiting religious sites.
