Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Jordan

On the Eastern bank of the Jordan River lies the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, which is strategically located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa. The capital of Jordan is Amman, which is the largest and most populous city in the country and as well as the country's cultural and economic center. Jordan is considered to be among the safest of Arab countries as it has managed to keep itself apart from instability and terrorism. It is classified as a country of ‘high human development,’ and because of its well-developed health sector, it is a great destination for medical tourism apart from general tourism. Hostels in Jordan are aplenty and you will find comfortable accommodations for individuals and groups alike throughout the country.

The climate of Jordan varies as you travel. As you go inland, there is greater contrast in temperature with less rainfall. While day temperatures soar, low humidity moderates these temperature hikes and the nights here are much cooler. Summers in Jordan last from May to September while the pretty chilly winters occur during the months of November to March. Plan your visit to this lovely country preferably during the least hot months to enjoy the weather and your vacation to the fullest.

On your visit to Jordan, stop off at the incredible city of Petra that is actually built into a mountain! With brilliant beauty during the day, Petra truly comes alive during the night when the hundreds of candles light up and illuminate the mile-long trail through the Siq, which ends up in the fully lit-up treasury. There's so much to look at in the city of Petra that you can actually be just in this one city for an entire week! While you are here, be sure to take a trek up the massive monastery and enjoy some of the best views that this region has to offer.

The Dead Sea is definitely another must-visit place. It is not only the saltiest body of water, but also the lowest point on earth. On getting into the water, you immediately begin to float! Take care not to open your eyes while you're in the water here since the high concentration of salt can cause your eyes to sting!

Stopping off at the desert canyons of Wadi Rum will make you feel like you've just stopped over at Mars! The rugged, glowing landscapes and the traditional Bedouin camps beckon you to just delve into a world that is far from reality. The cuisine in Jordan is to die for (or sometimes to kill for). It is very different from Asian kitchens, but it is certainly a welcome change with spices, traditional cooking methods and native foods that take you into culinary heaven. While you are here, try out the national dish, mansef, preferably only on weekends as it is really heavy and can put you to sleep.

Enjoy all that Jordan has to offer by reserving a room or bed at one of its hostels. There are many good hostels in Jordan, especially near major tourist attractions and in the heart of each city. Book your Jordan hostels well in advance to avoid any last minute unpleasantness, and dive in and enjoy the splendor of this beautiful country.
