Hello all,

heading to Amman next week and I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a shuttle busstraight from the Amman airport to Petra, or would I have to head into Amman then do it from there?
Any idea of the costs involved?

hello friend
you are welcome to jordan and to my best place petra
in Amman airport they dont have a shuttle busstraight..
and you must to fo to amman first and then to petra .
from amman airport u can just take a taxi to petra .
so you have option :
if you enter Amman airport in day time u can take the bus to amman and then to petra .
if you enter Amman airport in night time you have to go to amman and stay in hotel till morning and then by bus to petra .

I hired a driver from Amman down to Petra, stopping at Madaba, Karak Castle and Mt Nebo on the way down. It was great value and all 3 of those places are well worth visiting. Send me a PM if you would like details of the taxi driver we used as he was a lovely guy and I'd highly recommend him to anyone.
