It is helpful to know that a large number of solo female travellers visit Jordan each year! And most of these visits are problem-free. However, to increase your personal confidence, we recommend spending some time understanding the country’s culture, religion and traditions prior to arrival. This includes having an awareness of appropriate attire, potential challenges you may face while visiting and attitudes in general towards women.
The question we get most often is about what to wear! And generally speaking, when compared to neighbouring countries, Jordan is fairly relaxed when it comes to clothing. That said the dress codes are still considered strict when you compare them to many Western countries. Jordan is a very religious country and the majority of citizens are Muslim. With that in mind, we’ll be providing a “Jordan-101” Webinar in advance of our G’WA to address your questions.
