Tourist Information

When to go
The best time to visit Jordan is between the summer and winter season in spring or autumn when the sun is no longer baking hot. Winters can be very cold in most parts of the country but Aqaba and the Red Sea area are still quite nice at this time of year.
 
 
Electrical system
The electrical system in Jordan is based on 220 AC volts, 50 cycles and requires two-pronged wall plugs. Visitors from North America will need an adapter, which is available at most hotels. 
 
 
 
Weather
 
 
Spring
Weather will be warm in Amman (average Fahrenheit temperatures range from 60-70 during the day to 40's at night) and it will be warmer at the Dead Sea and the Jordan Valley (70-80 degrees during the day). Possible rainfall occurrence in the northern regions. 
 
 
Summer
Weather will be hot and quite dry in Amman (average Fahrenheit temperatures range from 70-90 during the day to 60's at night) and it will be very hot at the Dead Sea and the Jordan Valley (80-100 degrees during the day). 
 
 
Fall
Weather will be warm in Amman (average Fahrenheit temperatures range from 60-70 during the day to 40's at night) and it will be warmer at the Dead Sea and the Jordan Valley (70-80 degrees during the day). 
 
 
Winter
Weather will be cool in Amman (average Fahrenheit temperatures range from 40-60 during the day to 30's at night) and it will be warmer at the Dead Sea and the Jordan Valley (60-70 degrees during the day). Sporadic rainfall can occur, with possible snow showers.
 
 
Clothing/ Public appearance
Jordan is a primary a Muslim country, although the freedom of all religions is protected. Muslim women's clothing often covers their arms, legs and hair. Western women are not subject to these customs, but very revealing clothing is never appropriate, and conservative dress is advisable for both men and women in the old part of Amman (Downtown), and outside the cities.
 
Shorts are rarely worn by either sex, and would be out of place in downtown Amman area. Topless sunbathing is prohibited and one-piece swimsuits are preferred, although two-piece swimsuits are acceptable at hotels pools. 
 
Even in summer, evenings can be cool, so sweater or shawl is advisable. Winters can be extremely cold, especially in Amman and the east; you will need a raincoat. 
 
Walking shoes are advisable since Petra and most of the archeological sites are unpaved and sandy. 
 
 
Shopping/ Credit cards
There will be many opportunities to shop during your trip. All major credit cards are accepted although some, not all, stores may charge you a 3-5% service fee if paying for your shopping with a credit card. ATM machines are available around Jordan should you need to use them.

The weekly days off is Friday and Saturday. The stores are generally closed except the large supermarkets and malls. The "souk" of the down town remains open.
