Things To Do in Aqaba

Gulf of Aqaba
4.4/5

Beach
雨丝风片I think this is the most worthwhile place in Jordan. Akaba, also translated as dumb, is a seaside town in Jordan. The Red Sea is here, and the opposite is Israel. So, as a foreigner, don't take photos on the road, especially in the port, otherwise the Arabs will lock you up as a spy. When you come to Dumb Keba, you must go to the Red Sea to play. Diving in the Red Sea or chartering a boat out to sea are good. You can see airplanes and cannons underwater, which is not available in other diving places.

霸霸The jewel of the Red Sea is also the first choice for Israeli Jews’ leisure and vacation. The sea view is not as good as other “famous” places, and the beaches are not delicate. It takes about 4 hours to drive from Tel Aviv to Eilat. The scenery along the way can make you unforgettable (mainly desert and karst erosion landforms), and it will also make you feel the tenacity of Jewish statehood (the greening of the rising city is particularly good, and the Palestinian area is strong Contrast). Especially when passing through the Ramon Grand Canyon, the huge settlement is amazing! The downside is that the Eilat hotel is very expensive, and there are not many options for Ctrip. There may be almost no Chinese tourists. Most of the people who come to Israel go to Jerusalem and the Dead Sea. It is recommended to experience Red Sea diving, which is comparable to or even better than several famous diving sites in the Pacific.

欲飞的鸟[Aqaba Castle] Located behind the Aqaba Seaside Square in Jordan, it is a fortress built by the Sultan in 1587, with a history of more than 400 years. After years of baptism, the castle is a bit dilapidated; the incomplete royal emblem tells the glory of the past... Next to the castle, there is Emil Sharif Said, a participant in the Battle of Aqaba during the First World War (1917). · The monument to Hussein bin Ali (Arabic: حسین بن علی).

sarah小piuThe local Bedouins drive a jeep to take you through the wonders of the desert, 40JD per person, they will charge when they are in the visitor center, only cash. You can choose the morning or the afternoon, we booked from 3 pm until sunset. During the itinerary, we will go to several important scenic spots for tourists to take photos. Tourists can see spring wells in the desert, text carved on the rocks, and many photo spots for Internet celebrities. Various girls in red dress beautifully here. Viewing, of course, the last attraction is the sunset viewing spot that everyone likes. The sunset in the desert has a hazy feeling, but it is still very charming. Everyone will sit quietly on the high rock and enjoy the sunset. Great view. The whole process requires a certain amount of physical strength. If the climbing skills are good, then it is more suitable to come here. We have encountered many hikers who are quite professional. If you also like to hike in the desert, then flashlights, compasses, maps and other tools are essential. In addition to jeep and walking, there are also tourists who choose to go on horseback or camel tours. After the day's schedule is over, everyone hurries to take a shower, then eat, and wait for the stars. I must recommend the food here, I have never expected such a delicious food in such an environment! That’s right, you can’t eat it if you’re not in the desert, because his cooking method is to dig a deep hole in the desert, then burn it for 2-3 hours (look at the food), and finally put the lid on, we walk in and out here, But I never thought that the underground is our dinner. They all seem to be very simple Jordanian dishes, but they all say that the chef cooks deliciously. If your speed is too slow, it is very likely that the plate will be empty if you have not tasted it. During dinner, there will be a fox patronizing our dining tent. It looks like a wild dog and is not big, but it is familiar with the road. It comes in through the door to see you, and then rushes out of the window. The locals said that this fox meant to beg for food, and later came several times. The kind Bedouin rewarded it with a piece of chicken, and it quickly left after grabbing it. It is said that this fox also likes to steal the slippers of the guests. Sometimes, the guests have to walk a long way to find their own shoes, but all this is so novel to us. The cuteness of animals and the friendliness of humans are harmonious. Picture. After dinner, everyone washes up one after another. Don’t be too harsh on the conditions here. After all, in the desert, if you must have air-conditioned rooms, private bathrooms, and Internet celebrity tents, then there are also accommodations for thousands of yuan in the desert, but most Tourists will still enjoy the real tent camp. The water in the bathroom is not too big and not very hot, so everyone will just wash it without any problem. In the desert at night, there is no other light except for the stars. Some tourists will lie outside and stare at the starry sky for a while. Most of the tourists in the tent have their windows open. As long as you look up, the starry sky is yours. The tents provide blankets. Don’t think that the desert is very hot and doesn’t need to be covered. It’s still a bit cool in the middle of the night. After breakfast the next day, you can let the locals arrange to pick you up from the visitor center.
