Cultural tips

Jordan is an Islamic country. Although comparatively liberal, many of the women are veiled. Visitors, especially women, are advised to dress modestly. This not only shows respect for the culture, but also will help you be accepted. Do not take photographs without asking permission first.
Alcohol is not served nor appreciated

Respect the culture and traditions and you will be rewarded with warmth and hospitality.
