Comfortable shoes

You’ll spend hours exploring the countries sights - a visit to Petra alone can involve a day’s worth of walking - so bring a sturdy pair of walking shoes.

Modest clothing

When visiting Jordan, you’ll need to wear modest clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Bring light, loose-fit clothing for the heat and warm layers for chilly desert nights.

A scarf is a handy item for keeping the sun and sand off your face, and for covering your head or shoulders when entering religious sites.
