WHAT TO WEAR WHEN TRAVELING TO JORDAN

You’ve been counting down the days until you embark on your epic Jordan tour. The time has finally arrived that many dread…it’s time to pack. You are only visiting for a week and you want to maximize your packing space. We hear you; it’s not an easy task. The question rolling around in your head is, “What is appropriate to wear in an Islamic, Middle Eastern country?”

Not to fear, we have some tips for you.

While Jordan is a progressive Muslim country, it is still conservative at heart.  The general rule of thumb, for women, is the less skin showing the less attention you will draw to yourself (it really is for your benefit). Tightness, on the other hand, is not as much of a faux pas as showing skin in this culture.

Also consider the nature of your travel. While its not extreme adventure tourism, you will be doing quite a lot of walking, hiking and possibly some climbing depending on your itinerary and daring spirit. Other possible scenarios include mounting and dismounting camels or donkeys, sleeping in goat hair tents, and getting your hands dirty as you harvest olives or tomatoes alongside locals.

Petra Tour
  • Jordanian women dress very fashionably in urban parts of the country.  It is common to see covered women wearing tight skirts and dresses over leggings.  By contrast, in small villages or conservative areas, many women wear a long coat called a jilbab, which covers any hint of their figure.  Depending on where I am going, I aim for somewhere in between these two.
 
  • Pack a few thin cotton long-sleeve shirts.  I also love cardigans.  They are a great conservative option.  It’s ok for tourists to wear short-sleeves, but personally, I always feel more comfortable covering most of my arms and it shows respect for the local culture.
 
  • Avoid shirts that reveal too much of your chest or back.  Cleavage is a big no-no here.  Tuck a scarf in your purse or backpack in case you end up in a more conservative area of town and want to throw it around your shoulders. If you plan on entering a mosque at anytime during your stay a scarf may come in handy as you might want to cover your head.
 
  • If your itinerary includes a beach you’ll want to bring a swimsuit.  At a resort anything goes, but at a public beach you may want to choose a modest suit.  The more skin showing the more looks you will get, in which case some women may be more comfortable wearing a t-shirt and shorts over their suit. Local ladies who swim will be fully covered.

Dead Sea Beaches

Without a doubt the world’s most amazing place, the Jordan Rift Valley is a dramatic, beautiful landscape, which at the Dead Sea, is over 400m (1,312 ft.) below sea level. The lowest point on the face of the earth, this vast stretch of water receives a number of incoming rivers, including the River… Here are the list of the Dead Sea beaches we use .
