Undoubtedly THE strong point of Jordan. When you come back from a trip to this country and show your holiday photos to friends, you are very frustrated that you can't "show" them what is often the best memory of your stay: the incredible hospitality of the Jordanians. This is not a tourist argument but a reality: you will often be invited to tea just for the pleasure of exchanging a few words and we will never hesitate to help you in case of problems. Jordan is also an extremely safe country for tourists. The rules of Arab hospitality apply here: guests do not pay for the first few days (insisting would be rude) and especially not women! Moreover, if they can feel observed in the street, they will always be helped with chivalry and kindness.
A pleasant climate :
Jordan is a very sunny country with a very dry climate. It can be visited all year round to visit the main sites, as winters are mild and summers are bearable. High altitude regions (Amman, Dana, Petra) can sometimes experience snow in winter, and hot summers, but the shoulder seasons are ideal. The Jordan Valley and the shores of the Dead Sea offer a mild and warm climate, while Aqaba enjoys a microclimate that allows you to swim and dive in the middle of winter under the sun.
