Routes and distances maps

Pack your bags and head for Jordan! Easy to get to from the UK, flights take around 5 hours. Be aware that your passport is required to have six months’ validity after the date of your arrival in Jordan. It is recommended you keep your passport with you at all times. A visa is also necessary to enter Jordan, although this is free if you book your stay with a Jordanian agency. Once you are there, the size of the country makes getting around easy. However, be wary of Jordanian driving which can be surprising (if not chaotic). Public transport is mainly used by the locals and is not advised for tourists. You can also use private taxis whose drivers might serve as a guide if the price is right.
