How to get there
We flew on the Royal Jordanian airlines
which link Paris to Amman in 6 hours and give a connecting flight on
the same day to Aquaba. The ORWC transportation worked out nicely.
What is the best time
Spring and fall are the most pleasant
time. The summer is too hot and you might get some snow in winter.
The country is very friendly
for tourism and it is relatively easy to get organized locally. Public
transportation is cheap and convenient, but cannot be taken with a
wheelchair. We used taxis to drive us to Petra and the Wadi Rum desert.
Accessible hotels are as usual quite expensive, but cheaper lodges can
be found where the lack of accessibility is balanced by the hospitality
and assistance of your hosts.
In the Wadi Rum desert, bedu style tents with camping beds are very
convenient. Hiring a donkey to tow the ORWC in and around Petra is
And for the snorklers or
scuba divers, it is possible to rent the appropriate gear and guide.
