Aqaba is Jordan’s port located in the most southern area of the country, on the Red Sea. On a clear day Israel, Saudi Arabia & Egypt can be seen. Aqaba is certainly a fast growing city that people flock to for some beach time but also popular because it is a tax free zone. Wadi Rum is only 50 minutes from Aqaba so for clients not wishing to camp out in the desert, you can stay in one of the city’s hotels. Aqaba also has an airport with flights back up to Amman – avoiding a road transfer back.
