Jordan in the Middle East shares a border with Israel, Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

The lost city of Petra surely tops your must see list for Jordan, and with good reason. The entire city of Petra was hewn from a sandstone rock wall and stood forgotten for 1000 years before being rediscovered in 1812. No trip to Jordan would be complete without a visit to the Dead Sea, in Jordan’s Rift Valley, whether it’s to soak up the beneficial mineral salts, or just for the fun of floating effortlessly in the warm, salty waters. The growth of the oil industry in Jordan is evident in its modern capital, Amman, and the port city of Aqaba on the gulf is fast becoming a stylish, world class resort, as well as a popular aquatic playground. At least four to eight weeks prior to your planned departure for Jordan, plan a visit to our Travel Health Clinic, to make doubly sure that you will be completely safe and up-to-date with the Vaccinations you need for your trip to Jordan.Further Travel Health Advice for Jordan

Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again.

Further Travel Health Advice for Jordan

Summer months in south Jordan are very hot. Temperatures can rise to 35 or higher. Remember to wear good head covering, and apply sunblock liberally and often. While touring, drink lots of bottled water, and other fluids

Don’t risk drinking local water when travelling. Use only bottled, purified drinking water, and use it also bottled water for brushing your teeth, no matter which area you visit. Avoid ice cubes.

In the Bedouin tradition, mealtime in Jordan is a celebration, and the variety of foods available is seemingly endless. Jordanian food can be very spicy or mild, and often features lamb, as in the National dish, Mansaf, which is a delicious mix of lamb, prepared with sun dried yogurt called Jameed, spices and golden pine nuts, all served on the traditional Shraak bread. All of your Middle Eastern favourites are available, including falafel and hummus. Major hotels offer just about every style of International cuisine, and fast food outlets are everywhere in the capital. Jordan is one of the oldest and most skilled wine producers in the world, and Jordanian wines are well worth tasting.

Health care services in Jordan are among the very best in the middle east. Amman alone has 20 good hospitals. Arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need. ATMs are available throughout cities and resorts.

Protect yourself, and your family, with adequate travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any unusual activities.

Jordan is generally safe for travellers, but it is always best to use normal precautions when visiting the capital, especially at night.
