To be honest i had the most fun in Wadi Rum desert, at Petra you are harassed by sellers every 30 meters of the 2hour hike, but if you ignore them its a once in a lifetime experience.

Jordan has incredible natural beauty and must see places like the Dead sea, roman sites in Jerash, the food is amazing and people are generally friendly if I exclude that some people have no respect for animals and just kick cats around :( .

I must also add that you can experience quite a culture shock so beware of people slaughtering goats or chickens in the middle of the street; street cats and dogs are abundant and the traffic there is horrendous + I saw some cars on the road that amazed me they could still run after missing half of the front and being rusted to another level. Edit1: Also trash, a lot of people just don't care and throw anything on the street so when you drive anywhere you are greeted by piles of rubbish, Aquaba was the cleanest of all the cities I visited.
