Jordan welcomes a short autumn season in September, with temperatures reaching bearable highs. This is one of the best times to explore the country’s wonders. Here are some of the reasons why you should visit Jordan in September.

  • Festivals: If you are traveling to Jordan in September, you do not want to miss the Haya Theater Festival, which features plays, puppet shows, and creative workshops from talented performers all over the world.
  • Float in the Dead Sea: Located 45 minutes from Amman, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on the Earth’s surface. The water here is known for its high salt content, making it very buoyant. Enjoy a relaxing afternoon floating in this natural wonder. While you are there, do not forget to lather yourself with mineral-rich Dead Sea mud, known for its healing properties.
  • Birdwatching: The Azraq Wetland Reserve is an oasis for the migratory birds that stop here as they migrate towards Asia from Africa. Around 280 bird species land here every year and September is a great month to catch them. Look out for the Desert Finch, European Honey Buzzard, and several species of harrier.

Where to Go and What to Do

Explore the honeycombed landscape carved facades, towering pillars, and soaring sandstone cliffs of Petra.

The ruins of Petra are a testimony to the ancient people who carved its intricate walls. Since Jordan’s temperature in September brings large sightseeing crowds during the day, why not take a nighttime tour and see the Rose City under the Milky Way?

Take advantage of the cool September weather to immerse yourself in the centuries-old Arab nomadic culture by taking a guided camping trip into the Wadi Rum desert, home to the Bedouin tribe. Enjoy a camel safari in the deep desert landscape and enjoy traditional dance and music by the campfire under a star-lit night sky.

If you are more of a city-lover, explore the capital city of Amman, the cultural and economic hub of Jordan. Visit Amman Citadel and the beautifully preserved Roman Amphitheater if you are into culture and history. Or stroll through Rainbow Street which has many restaurants, cafes, and shops. Here you can sit down for a meal of mansaf (a traditional Arabic dish of lamb, rice, and yogurt) before testing your haggling skills around the corner in the Souk Jara market. You can also visit the ancient city of Petra, where you can spend the whole day exploring the city's many attractions like the Siq and Treasury, the Colonnaded Street, and the High Place of Sacrifice. You can also climb the 850 rock-cut steps to Al-Deir to the Monastery, which is the largest monument of Petra and undoubtedly the most impressive one. For more ideas, make sure you go through our travel guide on things to do while in Jordan.
