Know before you go
  • Although Western clothing is quite acceptable, Jordanians are generally more traditional in the way they dress. Out of respect for local culture, please dress conservatively, i.e. no sleeveless or low cut tops etc. Shorts are accepted in main tourist areas. Women should cover their heads, arms and legs when entering religious buildings. 
  • It can get surprisingly cold at night in the desert or during drives in open jeeps (especially from October to March), so pack warm and windproof clothing. 
  • You will be on the move a good deal, so pack as lightly as possible (try to stay around 10 kg /22lb). 
  • Suitcases are definitely not recommended for our trips. 
  • This packing list is to be used as a guide, with our suggestions of items you may wish to pack.
