Driving Tips

In Jordan driving is on the right. The major highways are generally in good condition but smaller rural roads can be less well maintained and care is needed when driving on these routes. Routes 65, 35 and 15 are some of the main north-south highways, while Route 437 runs west from Amman towards the border with Israel.

Additional tips for driving in Jordan:

  • Police checkpoints are common and you should keep your ID and rental documentation with you at all times.
  • Look out for road flooding in the rainy season (November to March).
  • Use extra caution when driving at night as roads are often poorly lit.

Places of Interest

Top 4 Architectural Sights

  • The Treasury, Petra
  • Roman Amphitheater, Amman
  • Jerash Ruins
  • Al Beidha

Petra is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. The ancient city was founded in 312 BC and carved out of the desert rock. The Treasury, or Al-Khazneh, is one of the most stunning temple 'buildings' carved from the rock face. The Roman Amphitheater at Amman is one of the city's top attractions and has been painstakingly restored. Cut into a city hillside, the 6,000 seat structure still holds cultural events today. The Jerash Ruins are the impressive remains of a Roman city, dating from around 100 AD. This extensive site features a Triumphal Arch built by the Emperor Hadrian, a hippodrome for chariot races, the Oval Plaza and Temple of Zeus. Al Beidha is an important Neolithic archaeological site dating from 11,000 BC. It is part of the Petra UNESCO World Heritage Site and is situated a few miles north of the ancient city. It is thought to be one of the oldest known sites of human habitation.

Top 4 Natural Sights

  • Burdah Rock Bridge
  • Wadi-al-Mujib
  • The Dead Sea
  • Siq

The Burdah Rock Bridge at Wadi Rum is the largest rock arch in the area. It straddles a gorge 80 meters above the valley floor and is accessible to adventurous trekkers. Wadi-al-Mujib, also known as Arnon, is renowned as Jordan's Grand Canyon. It connects with the Dead Sea more than 410 meters below sea level and is the location for the world's lowest nature reserve, an internationally important area for bird life. The Dead Sea on Jordan's western border is almost 10 times more salty than the ocean. It has been a health resort since the time of Herod the Great and is famous for the floating effect it has on bathers, caused by the increased buoyancy of the salt water. The Siq is the mile-long gorge that forms the entrance into the ancient city of Petra.
