JORDAN CONSCIOUS TRAVEL & CAPSULE WARDROBE

Jordan (The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan) is best known for its strong tradition of hospitality, as well as historical destinations and landmarks that tell the story of its ancient history. It's a modern and progressive country yet still focused on preserving traditions.

Not only is it widely known as one of the safest destinations in the Middle East, this small country is also known for being hospitable to refugees from surrounding areas and is now home to an estimated 2.1 million Palestinians, 1.4 million Syrian and around 20,000 Iraqi refugees who all live together peacefully.

WEATHER

The best time to visit Jordan is March through May (Spring) or September through November (Autumn), where the weather is perfect for you to explore the city comfortably in daylight and it’s not too hot to hike. Still, I’d like to add that Spring and Autumn as seasons are hardly ever felt in Jordan. They are usually a couple of weeks. The two main seasons are Summer and Winter.

Summer's hottest months are July and August where temperature can reach up to 36°C, so it might be wise not to do your trip there during these months unless you’re fine with the heat. 

Also bear in mind that the south where you can find Petra, Wadi Rum and Aqaba, are usually warmer than the Capital Amman, which is in the north-central of Jordan.

Jordan experiences snow in Winter (December through February) and the nights get cold up to 3°C especially in the desert regions. Winter is also when most of the rain falls, but showers are usually short and sharp.

AVERAGE TEMPERATURE IN AMMAN:

March - May 
Maximum Temperature  18°C –28°C    
Minimum Temperature 7°C –15°C

September - November
Maximum Temperature 20°C - 31°C
Minimum Temperature  10°C - 18°C

How to move around?

Most Jordanians move around with cars or buses. Although in some areas buses might not be that accessible. Taxing taxis or an Uber is relatively cheap in Jordan compared to Europe. It is possible to walk to places depending where you’re staying and where you’d like to go, but biking might not be that convenient with Amman’s hills and steep valleys. here are some car rental companies that you can check out: Reliable , Montecarlo

Authentic Jordanian food with vegan options
It might be tricky to find some good vegan food in Jordan, but if you’re in the capital, you might find some restaurants that offer authentic Jordanian food with vegan options. A great one would be: Sufra Restaurant. It's also located in Rainbow Street (at the 1st circle close to downtown Amman), a beautiful old neighborhood that is full of cafes, restaurant art galleries and local shops.
