Jordan's only coastal and port city, Aqaba offers a wide range of water-related activities offshore to accompany its mix of historic buildings back on land.
Step out of Aqaba with an excursion to Wadi Rum Protected Area in Wadi Rum--about 1h 15 min away. There's lots more to do: get outside with Outdoor Activities, browse the exhibits of Arts of Sham Countries Art Gallery, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, and make a trip to Sharif Hussein Bin Ali.

For other places to visit, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Aqaba day trip website .

Toronto, Canada to Aqaba is an approximately 18.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time to Israel Standard Time is 7 hours. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Toronto in December, with highs in Aqaba at 27°C and lows at 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sun) to allow time to drive to Amman.

Jordan's capital city, Amman spreads across 19 hills and includes many distinct districts, each with their own historical and cultural marvels.
Start off your visit on the 23rd (Mon): delve into the distant past at The Citadel, make a trip to King Abdullah Mosque, and then explore the ancient world of Jerash Ruins. Here are some ideas for day two: pause for some photo ops at Madaba Mosaic Map, then take in the awesome beauty at Mount Nebo, then make a trip to Rainbow Street, and finally explore the ancient world of Roman Amphitheater.

To find photos, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, use the Amman holiday builder website .

Getting from Aqaba to Amman by car takes about 4 hours. Other options: do a combination of flight and bus; or take a bus. In December, Amman is a bit cooler than Aqaba - with highs of 17°C and lows of 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Petra - Wadi Musa.
