Jordan In January

When you think of Jordan, you think of the desert, long sweeping sand dunes and the hot beating sun. The landscape baren except with the possible occasional cacti, standing upright and solemn. Well, I was amazed at how different my pre-conceptions were of this diverse and small country. Here's what you need to know and why you should travel to Jordan in January.

Getting To Jordan

We flew with Easyjet from Edinburgh with an overnight at London Gatwick Premier Inn Hotel before catching the connecting Easyjet mid-morning flight to Aqaba, Jordan. The outgoing flights were perfect. For the best views like the one above of Wadi Rum, sit on the right-hand side of the plane.

There are other airlines and routes available.

Top Tip: On arrival, you have the opportunity to invest in a mobile phone sim card. We managed to get by without one. As each of the hotels had complimentary wifi (with the exception of Wadi Rum Luxury Night Camp).
