Jordan's capital city, Amman spreads across 19 hills and includes many distinct districts, each with their own historical and cultural marvels.
Venture out of the city with trips to Jerash (Jerash Ruins & Ajloun Castle), Madaba (Madaba Mosaic Map, Mount Nebo, & more) and Ajlun Castle (Qala'at ar-Rabad) (in Ajlun). The adventure continues: explore the ancient world of The Citadel, contemplate the long history of Roman Amphitheater, make a trip to Rainbow Street, and look for gifts at Nadia Dajani Jewellery.

To see where to stay, reviews, photos, and tourist information, read our Amman driving holiday app .

Chennai, India to Amman is an approximately 13-hour combination of flight and bus. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3 hours traveling from Chennai to Amman. Traveling from Chennai in October, expect Amman to be slightly colder, temps between 32°C and 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Mon) early enough to drive to Petra - Wadi Musa.

Visitors flock to Wadi Musa to witness the rose colored rock-carved temples and tombs of Petra, the famous ancient city and World Heritage Site.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Tue): delve into the distant past at Petra, then gain insight at Petra Kitchen, and then explore the ancient world of Byzantine Church. Keep things going the next day: make a trip to The Great Temple, then delve into the distant past at Al-Beidha - Little Petra, then delve into the distant past at Obelisk Tomb, and finally step into the grandiose world of Shobak Castle.

For traveler tips and tourist information, you can read our Petra - Wadi Musa trip planner.

Aqaba

Aqaba ©
Jordan's only coastal and port city, Aqaba offers a wide range of water-related activities offshore to accompany its mix of historic buildings back on land.
Step out of Aqaba to go to Wadi Rum and see Wadi Rum Protected Area, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. There's lots more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, step into the grandiose world of Aqaba Castle, take in the exciting artwork at Arts of Sham Countries Art Gallery, and don't miss a visit to Sharif Hussein Bin Ali.

Plan my trip to Aqaba with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Traveling by car from Petra - Wadi Musa to Aqaba takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 39°C in October, and nighttime lows around 25°C. You will have some time to spend on the 13th (Sun) before leaving for home.
