Best Souvenirs to buy in Jordan | Shopping Guide for Travellers in Jordan

One of the main components of my self-planned Jordan trip was also researching on ‘what are the best souvenirs to pick up in Jordan ?’ during the trip. I found that Jordan, being located in the interesting middle-east region as well having a rich mix of cultural Arab-Biblical heritage, had many things to offer in terms of handicrafts, souvenirs & other items for the dedicated ‘shopping’ traveller.

Here is the list the top souvenirs I picked up in Jordan and why they are unique.

Skin Products from the Dead Sea - The Dead Sea is renowned for its salt content and dead sea mud for its therapeutic properties. One of the must do things for travellers to Jordan is floating in Dead Sea (as the salt content prevents anything in it to drown). The Dead Sea mud is definitely special as my skin felt super soft & smooth for 2 days after I took the famed ‘Dead Sea’ bath after applying the mud. So I wasted no time in buying loads of Dead Sea skin products on my Jordan travel; there are many big & small skin care brands in Jordan selling Dead Sea sourced skin care products but the renowned ones are - Rivage, Dead Sea Treasures & Levant.

Pro-Tip for buying Dead Sea skin care products in Jordan: The airport duty free has a big counter selling Rivage brand skincare products at 15% reduced prices. So please skin test out the products you want at boutiques during the travel but better buy from the Airport Duty Free.

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.
