Climate: For a small country, Jordan has an extraordinary range of climates. The best time to visit climate-wise is in spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November), when the daytime temperatures aren't too extreme. April is probably the best month, when temperatures are warm and wildflowers are in bloom. March can be cold and rainy in the north but is balmy by the Gulf of Aqaba and the Dead Sea. In high summer (July and August) the weather in the humid Jordan Valley is extremely oppressive - it feels like you're trapped in an airless oven - with suffocating daytime highs well in excess of 36°C.

Economy: Jordan is a small country with limited natural resources. The country is currently exploring ways to expand its limited water supply and use its existing water resources more efficiently, including through the good regional cooperation it has with Israel. The country depends on external sources for the majority of its energy requirements.

Religion: Jordan is a modern Arab nation; its population is 92% Sunni Muslim with a small Christian minority.

Jerash
According to historical records Jerash has been inhabited since 3200 BC to 1600 AD Jerash city is divided into two, old city and new city. Old city or old city is a city which is the ancient Roman heritage building. While the new cityatau new town is where the population now lives Jordan.
City of Jerash has another attraction. Here can be found in various places such as the Oval Plaza meeting. Large field oval, surrounded by towering masts. This ancient city also has a magnificent theater, called the South Theater. Its uniqueness, has a natural acoustic system as a loudspeaker, a typical theater building thousands of centuries ago. Each Jerash Festival was held in July featuring a variety of local and international dance.

Amman City And Citadel
Citadel, located on a hilltop not far from the traditional markets of Al Balad. A relic that reminds us of the Roman Empire, and the early rise of Islam Bizantinum. Remains of buildings with masts towering above the city of Amman, people said this is a relic of Hercules. The building is crumbling and in ruins, occupied by the Romans (162-166 AD), much larger than the one in Rome.

The Dead Sea
The Dead Sea has a salt content of 31.5%, approximately 8.6 times higher than the other sea. Therefore, there is no living organism, a kind of fish or moss, which can live in this lake. This is why often referred to as the "Dead Sea".
Because of the high salt content so we can easily float on water. Marine mud has its own benefits for women, especially for the skin. In addition to the salt content is extremely high, the Dead Sea water also contains potassium, magnesium, and bromium, maybe that's why the Dead Sea mud is considered to be highly efficacious.
The Dead Sea area is home to numerous world-class resorts such as the Kempinski, Mövenpick and Marriott. In addition, there are water parks, a public beach and international restaurants.

Useful Tips: Shake hands upon meeting someone. Men traveling alone should not sit next to an unaccompanied Jordanian woman on public transport unless it cannot be avoided. Be careful about showing signs of affection in public too. It's generally worth dressing modestly throughout Jordan, to avoid any unwanted attention.

Credit Cards: Most major credit cards are accepted at top-end hotels and restaurants, travel agencies, larger souvenir shops and bookshops. However, always be sure to ask if any commission is being added on top of your purchase price. This can sometimes be as much as 5%; if so, it may be better to get a cash advance and pay with the paper stuff.

Tipping: Tips of 10% are generally expected in better restaurants. Elsewhere, rounding up the bill to the nearest 250 fills or with loose change is appreciated by underpaid staff, including taxi drivers. Hotels and restaurants in the midrange and, especially, top-end categories generally add on an automatic 10% service charge.
