*For the November - February trips when night-time temperatures can fall below freezing in the desert, we recommend a warmer jacket such as a down-filled jacket, and thermal base layers.
* As Jordan is an Islamic country, modest dress is preferable in the towns and cities. Shoulders should be kept covered, and full-length trousers/skirts are recommended. Shorts are OK in certain situations (eg. at the beach)
