Travelstick Jordan

Welcome To Jordan!

Jordan is an easy country to travel compared to other Arab countries. The people are naturally friendly, helpful and hospitable and many speak at least a few words of English. There is little hassle from touts and vendors and outside the main tourist areas (mainly Petra) you will be given a fair price with little bargaining neccessary. (Taxi drivers are another exception, used metered taxis whenever possible).

How to save money
Avoid taxis, walk anywhere within 5km, use the local transport, shop at local supermarkets and fruit shops.

We traveled Jordan for 18 days and it worked out as 30JD per person per day including the daily budget plus all one-off expenses.
