I wasn't quite sure which forum to put this in, but here it goes...
I'm in need of a little help planning out a rough itinerary for a trip to Israel and Jordan, which I'm thinking of doing in about a months time!
I like to generally focus on visiting a few main things and the rest of the time I'm just looking to get a feel for a country.
The main reason for my trip is to see Petra - intending to do some trekking, camel ride, sleep under the stars etc. and possibly a night time visit! I've got 2 weeks so the other area's I'd like to visit are Jerusalem and the Dead Sea.
I'm not fixed on whether I fly into Israel or Jordan first, I expect to fly midweek though as due to my late booking flights are cheaper. I'm planning to take public transport the majority of the time (taxi's when that isn't available), and sleeping in hostels which should keep costs down. I will likely do a tour down in Petra as I'd like to sleep out in a Bedouin camp/cave.
Current order of places I'd like to visit:
I'm planning 1 week in Israel, 1 in Jordan. The most amount of time I think I'll stay anywhere will be in Petra/Wadi Rum area 2-4 days and Jerusalem (3 days), the others I can imagine would either be day trips or on the way to somewhere new.
I'm interested to know if there are any places you think are worth visiting which I've missed out?
Thanks for any feedback/advice you can give!
