Bit Random - Flights to Jordan from Paphos £17.56 Round Trip @ Ryanair

Found 27th FebEdited by:"rachelandgromit"
Ok, it's from Paphos and yes this isn't HotCyprusDeals . . . Before anyone gets in and says it but there are some great return prices to Jordan from Cyprus (Paphos) and with return fares between £50-£60 it is quite possible to get a multi flight trip to both Paphos and Jordan for under £100pp. I know Ryanair are releasing fares later in the year to Amman from other EU countries so Jordan will certainly be more popular.

I visited last year and paid a lot more for my air fare, tourism was very low and hiking in Petra was amazing and we had many areas to ourselves. If Jordan is on your bucket list, I'd strongly suggest a visit. I felt completely safe, and it's a great place to visit.

A couple of nights pre/post in Paphos and combined with Amman, Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea - I'm tempted to go again!

I'd go back again even if I had to pay for it We did it all independently and hiked all the trails, you do need to venture a bit off the main sites within Petra to get an idea of how vast it is. Everyone thinks it's 'just' the Siq trail and Indiana Jones but it's so much more.
great deal, i am from Jordan and flights to Jordan never been that cheap, thanks to ryan air.
if anyone decided to travel to Jordan there is much to see. Weather is very nice, warm and dry in April and May but hot in June/July/August/September then warm and nice again in October and November.
Jordan is a great place to visit. There are so many historical sites, such as:
the site of Jesus's baptism,
Mount Nebo: where Moses received his revelation about Israel and thought to be buried
Dead Sea
and an abundance of other historical sites/ruins as well as Petra.
Yes it is expensive but not as much as many European countries.
Transportation is good and cheap if you do your research. The people are friendly.
If you purchase the Jordan pass (online) you will get your visa, entry to Petra and other places included. Its a good deal.
Jordan is also a great place to go to to visit Palestine. One of the crossings is near the Baptism site and the Dead Sea.
Its worth popping over the border to see Bethlehem and Jerusalem.

Why so? Thought it was one of the wonders of the world?

Why so? Thought it was one of the wonders of the world?



Souce is the Daily Telegraph

The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World were:

  • the Great Pyramid at Giza, Egypt.
  • the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
  • the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Greece.
  • the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus.
  • the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus.
  • the Colossus of Rhodes.
  • the Lighthouse at Alexandria, Egypt.

New 7 Wonders of the World
This list, the result of an initiative by a Swiss corporation, which has since been the target of criticism from tourist boards over "hidden costs" and voting methods, was published in 2007.
1. Great Wall of China
2. Petra, Jordan
3. Christ the Redeemer, Rio de Janeiro
4. Machu Picchu, Peru
5. Chichen Itza, Mexico
6. Colosseum, Rome
7. Taj Mahal, India
The Great Pyramid of Giza was named an "honorary candidate".

So IMHO, no it isn't, sorry.
Jordan would be a dry country...! May give it a try hope the weather is good in april
Not sure about Amman but Petra is awesome. I'd be all over this if I hadn't already been... although Paphos is a bit meh.
Preferred it when it was known as 'Katie Price'

Pity you have to put up with all those people too tight to pay for a direct flight

Seems irrelevant for this web site.

I agree. Jordan is a beautiful country, I've travelled there twice, and had a wonderful time.
Wadi Rum, Mount Nebo, Jerash, Roman ruins in Amman, Petra, Madaba, Kerak castle, Dead Sea, River Jordan, also along the old King's Highway. Both trips over thirty years ago, or more. So much to see, and really friendly people. I'd love to return there one day.

I'd love to visit Petra. I think the opening photo is Petra, jaw dropping, spellbinding and awe-inspiring.

Your memory for where you went is incredible considering it was 30 years back! I forget I’ve been somewhere altogether sometimes..!
Thanks for posting Rach, how cheap is Jordan -accommodation, food etc ? Cheers

Haha! I'd wanted to see Petra since I was in my early teens. I was inspired by these lines from a poem - "match me such marvel save in Eastern clime, a rose-red city half as old as time". So, by the time I finally made it to Jordan, I'd read and absorbed all about this fascinating country.

I would say same prices as here in the UK
I'm sure it cost me more than that in fees - do they still make you pay an entry fee in local currency and the exchange desk before that is a real-ripoff?

Just note the airport is a long way from the city and Petra is further still, but a great deal on cheap flights.
If entry to Petra wasn't such a rip off, this would be great! How can they justify charging 50timesmore to a tourist?

Yeah but the Ancient ones are pretty limited on visiting potential these days anyways, not that useful for a tourist
Worth flagging that the current travel advise from the Foreign Office is an interesting read...

"The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all but essential travel to within 3km of the entire Syrian border, and to within 6km of the Syrian border between routes 15 and 35. This is due to the risk of small arms fire, stray mortars, or other attacks in the area. See Border areas

There is a heightened risk of protests across Jordan following a major US announcement on the status of Jerusalem. You should remain vigilant at all times. Avoid political gatherings and demonstrations. Stay away from downtown Amman and the centres of other towns and cities after Friday midday prayers as violent incidents have been known to occur at these times. From time to time, violent incidents have also occurred on several university campuses. See Political situation

Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Jordan. There were a number of incidents in 2016, some serious. Attacks could be indiscriminate including in places visited by foreigners, particularly hotels, shopping malls and tourist sites. You should take extra care, and in the event of an incident, follow the advice of the Jordanian authorities. See Terrorism

There’s a heightened risk of terrorism against aviation. Additional security measures which restrict electronic devices on-board planes, have been in place on flights departing from Jordan to the UK since March. You should co-operate fully with security officials. For more information about how this may affect your flight, including if you’re transiting through Jordan on the way to the UK, read this guidance page and contact your airline or travel company if you have further questions.

The Desert Highway (highway 15) has occasionally been closed due to unrest in Ma’an, and parts of the highway between Karak and Aqaba may also be blocked at times. If you’re using the highway in the area you should exercise caution and follow police instructions."
