Jordan family holidays guide
Jordan is extremely warm, but not in a way that might alarm you for a family holiday. As well as all the magnificent sites and landscapes, it is the warmth of Jordanian people that travellers rave about first and foremost, albeit at the top of a long list of family favourites. There are five UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Jordan, but if there was a UNESCO designation for warmth and welcome, which is clearly innate to Jordanian culture, the country would be a rightful recipient.
What my teenagers didnít expect from this trip was a gaining sense of how we are just specks in an enormous world. Wadi Rum does that to you.
Jordan is also a safe country to travel in, and boasts just about every aspect of educational benefits that you might seek on a family holiday. The historical sites, the geography of the desert and Dead Sea, the cultural importance of Bedouins and, something that is too cool for school, an endless amount of fun and adventure.

best time to go on a family holiday to jordan
February half term in Jordan with our kids was a little chilly, but the warmth of Jordanians was like a glorious winter glow bestowed upon us.
The best time to go to Jordan with your family is now. Tourism is relatively quiet as people donít realise it is super safe to travel to, which means that some of the big tourism sites arenít overcrowded, even during peak season school holidays. Summer holidays can be boiling though, reaching as high as 40įC but May and October half terms are perfect. And October is stunning for diving and snorkeling too. Christmas has its own magic in Jordan, particularly in Amman where the Christian communityís excitement spreads throughout the city.
