Just Loved Jerash
Review of Jerash Roman City (Jordan) by Essexgirl2006

Advantages: Excellently preserved Roman town
Disadvantages: Not for me

Jerash, in northern Jordan, is one of the best preserved former Roman cities that can be found in the region, helped by the dry desert air. Situated about an hour's drive from the capital, Amman, it is also easily accessible for a half day trip. Admission ... Read review

Disadvantages: Facilities a bit basic

Floating in the Dead Sea is a unique experience and one I was keen to try on my visit to Jordan. It is the lowest land point on the planet (408m below sea level) and the second saltiest body of water, with a salt content nine times denser than a 'normal' ... Read review

Artemis Buffet
Review of Artemis, Jerash by Essexgirl2006

Advantages: Good range of hot and cold food , clean
Disadvantages: Wait for drinks

Artemis restaurant is a buffet style restaurant in Jerash, Jordan. After an intense morning touring the amazing Roman ruins nearby our bus took us here for lunch. Although locals do eat here, the restaurant seems to get most of its business from tourists, ... Read review

All's Well at the Al Fanar
Review of Al Fanar Palace Hotel, Amman by Essexgirl2006

Advantages: Nice rooms, well equipped
Disadvantages: Not centrally located

This hotel was selected by my tour operator as the hotel for our first two nights in Amman, Jordan. It is a large independent hotel in the west of the city, approx 45 minutes from Queen Alia Airport. The immediate area doesn't really have much to offer, b ... Read review

Under the Milky Way
Review of Milky Way Eco Lodge, Jordan by hiker

Advantages: More comfortable than you might expect - warm and welcoming hosts
Disadvantages: None - unless of course you don't like desert

Milky Way Camp, Wadi Rum For some reason Ciao were not prepared to accept this under 'hotels' - although in all but the technical sense that is what it is - but are happy for it to be listed as an attraction. Odd. Me and the whole "tent" thing= ... Read review

Aye-aye Captain
Review of Al Captain, Aqaba by hiker

Advantages: Location: just a few streets from the beach
Disadvantages: None - but the food isn't as swanky as the website makes it look

Arrival & Check-in We arrived in Aqaba full of desert sand and with nothing on the agenda other than to check into the hotel and chill out. There was talk of diving and scuba and boat trips. I was in the mood for a day off, so for once the hote ... Read review

Echoing Silence
Review of Wadi Rum (Jordan) by hiker

Advantages: It's a desert
Disadvantages: It's a desert

Wadi Ramm Wadi is one of those words that doesn’t seem to translate very well. I'm no Arabic scholar but the impression I get is that most people think of a Wadi as being a river bed. Well, yes… but perhaps the more generic "valley" might be a be ... Read review

I understand your reason why, but all the same it doesn't much appeal. Deserts repel me; I'd only go for the human relics, and L's house doesn't sound as if it quite measures up! by torr
An exceptionally interesting review - and subject here.....oddly enough the name "Thesiger" jumped off the page at me - at school I boarded in Thesiger Dormitory.....two years after I left there my father moved to Thesiger Road! R. by RICHADA

Simple Shobak
Review of Shobak Castle, Petra by hiker

Advantages: It's free, it's en route, you get to wander at will
Disadvantages: None - unless you're not able to make up your own interpretation

Shobak isn’t the kind of place to make the focus of a day out. It’s more the sort of delight you stumble across on the way home. In the late afternoon sun, the walls cast a golden glow from vantage point above the road. An early 12th century Crusader c ... Read review

When we visited there were hundreds of students wandering around and one group were singing and dancing, all very social. The castle was impressive too. by catsholiday

Best Laid Plans The Plan was "Forest Lodge, Ajloun Reserve". The news was: site washed out. This provoked a succinct e-mail from my other half at home. Forest? Washed out? Neither of these compute with my notion of the middle East. Indeed not ... Read review
