Jordan Self-Planned Travel Guide for Indian Travellers | How to plan for Jordan trip from India – Trips & Hacks and Frequently Asked Questions for planning a trip to Jordan

Jordan  - the tiny Hashemite kingdom in the Arab region is most famous for Petra – one of the Seven Wonder of the World. This beautiful semi-arid country also has many interesting places such as Dead Sea, Wadi Rum desert and many beautiful castles & historical monuments from various historical ages such as Crusader era, Roman period and Ottoman empire. It was my childhood dream to visit Petra and me & my 2 close friends visited the stunning Jordan this year on a self-planned trip. Post our trip, we got many enquiries about our trip to Jordan and I am sharing our trip planning experience here benefit of all Indian travellers.

A self-planned trip to Jordan is always a better idea economically as well in terms of experience both quantitively & qualitatively.
