    Oh, I agree. Jordan is pretty safe! I went last year had a wonderful time. I loved walking around Amman. Everyone loves Petra….but I didn’t, I thought it was nice but the ruins of the treasury and monastery were almost the same. Also at the start, the guys with the horses at the entrance were pretty rude with demanding tip and how much I had to give. I much preferred the ancient city of Jerash.

      Yes, it’s a shame that such beautiful places are spoiled by greedy people looking to profit from tourists. I loved Jerash too! I think I will have to write another article about places in Jordan I didn’t manage to cover in this one! But yeah Jordan is amazing

    This is an interesting post as I’m planning to visit Jordan next year on a cruise. I was unsure if travelling independently would be a good idea to see Petra. It certainly looks stunning but I’m guessing I won’t be as lucky as you getting a quiet day to explore, I’m sure all the cruise passengers will be following me there! I have read that Jordan is supposed to be one of the safest countries in that area and your post certainly supports this.

      Don’t worry, Laura- it’s completely safe. However, if you go on a cruise, it will be pretty crowded, indeed.

    Jordan looks stunning – I’ve been dying to go to Egypt and many people have suggested Jordan as well. So I decided to look into it and I’m very impressed with what I see here! I hope I can make it there before it becomes flooded with tourists!

    Oh gosh, your pics look stunning! I have Jordan for a long time on my list now and I really want to go. I am not so concerned about safety, I think it might be great to visit. Especially the camels look great:)

    I would love to visit Jordan one day! It is so nice to hear that you felt safe there and that you were assured so many times that it was a safe place to travel by the locals there. I have a little girl, so traveling to safe destinations is a priority, especially at this point in our lives. Your photos look wonderful, and I would especially love to swim in the Dead Sea.

    I was really interested to read this post as I’m visiting Jordan next year. I’m definitely planning to visit Petra and I hope it’s not too busy with tourists, I hope I get luck like you did. It’s reassuring to know that Jordan is working hard to make it safe for people to visit.

    When we visited Jordan about 15 years ago, it was virtually empty. The US were advising against travel (and invaded Iraq a week or two after we got home), the UK was recommending against it, but not saying an outright no (until we were already there!) so we went ahead. If it had been no, we’d have cancelled because it would invalidate any travel insurance. So it was utterly empty, there were literally a handful of fellow travellers in the whole of Petra and everywhere else. We felt very safe, but I appreciate it’s a different situation in the ME region now as to then, so it’s great to read that it’s still a safe country to visit.

      Thank you, Kavita0 even today some governments advice against traveling to Jordan but it’s a fact that Jordan remained one of the safest countries to visit in the Middle East despite all the turmoil in the neighboring countries.

    I have always heard all good things about Jordan. I did read about tourism getting affected but dint know that it has reduced drastically. Safety concerns do affects places. The tourism board should work towards reviving it because people will not go until the perception improves. Since you are saying, its safe. This definitely seems like a good time to go and discover Jordan when there are not many tourists.

    I heard that Jordan is really safe, what only the challenge I see is the cost of the flight!
    Visiting the place with no jampacked tourist is a wonderful feeling – you can admire the place with your own time and and capturing the beauty using your lenses and no distractions. I wish to visit this place, I believe that this place is a must visit, as this is one of the early place of civilization.

    I have heard so much about Jordan and frankly, I love the people from Jordan. They are so friendly and warm. And, it’s so comforting to hear on your arrival, ” Don’t worry, you are safe here. There might be some issues in the neighboring countries but you are completely safe here”. I would love to visit Petra and would also like to shop.

    I have always had this thing in my mind bothering if it was safe to travel to Jordan and thankfully I got everything I wanted to know in this post. I have always wanted to visit Jordan and explore its rich culture and so am planning a trip next year. I agree with your point of going to Jordan now because of the lesser crowds . Thanks for sharing this post
