We did the visit as a half-day trip from our hotel at the Dead Sea, passing Amman. Two hours walking was enough for us to get a feeling for the antique. Entry fee is 10 JOD/person. Don’t miss the theater!

Jerash would have been an incredible city nearly 2,000 years ago. Walking this huge complex today is an awesome experience. Some structures have been restored but parts are still standing today which is a testament to the talents and forethought of the builders years ago!...More

This site is staggering in its size and condition. It’s possible to imagine oneself walking through a Roman settlement. I’ve seen some roman sites but this is the most impressive

I would advice Jerash which is much more beautiful and big than Kerak. I think it is nearer as well.

Unless you're in love with hot, sticky, and almost unbreathable air, I'd avoid the whole of Jordan, especially Petra and Wadi Rum during the summer months. I went in April and it was around 100-105 deg F (38-40 C). And don't... More
