3 Days in Jordan from Israel: Jerash

3 Days in Jordan from Israel: Jerash, Jerash, Jordan (B)

The Kingdom of Jordan is a fascinating country rich in history, culture and incredible natural landscapes that can’t be missed when visiting the Middle East. Home to one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, I concluded my trip to Israel with a 3-day visit to its neighbouring country, starting with the Roman city of Jerash and the Citadel of Amman, the capital city. 

Jordan is an incredible destinations that deserves numerous days in order to explore all of its history and tourist attractions. If you have at least a full week to spare, you won’t regret dedicating it to this Middle Eastern country.

Unfortunately, I had limited time as I had spent most of my trip visiting Israel, but being so close to Jordan, I couldn’t return home without going at least to Petra. 

If you’re in Israel and want to combine your trip with a visit to Petra, there are many tour operators that will organise a 2 or 3 day trip to Jordan. Considering that visitors in a group of 5 or more don’t pay for the Jordanian visa if they stay in the country for at least 3 days (and the visa is not cheap!), the 3-day visit makes way more sense. What you save from the visa you can use it to spend an additional day exploring the Wadi Rum desert. There are also one-day visits that go straight to Petra and back, but they sound extremely rushed; personally, I wouldn’t bother with those.  ......
