Like all of the Lonely Planet books, this will be familiar to anyone who has used these books before; providing excellent and really helpful guidence and advice for travelling in Jordan. Having just returned, we found the information to be pretty accurate and it more than fulfilled the purpose for which we purchased the book. We'd certainly recommend it if you're thinking of travelling to Jordan. Although it doesn't have many pictures, it does have a huge amount of extra information and details that other guide books simply don't cover. We found that fellow travellers often asked if they could borrow it while we were there, as they found their alternative travel guides rather lacking in detail. Highly recommneded and easily worthy of 5 stars!

I bought this book to read up on Jordan before a 7 nights trip to Aqaba, Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea. I found it to be O.K., containing the information expected. One thing that annoyed me was that the page references and references to illustrations were completely off. It also had plenty of grammatical errors. The combination of both makes me believe that this book was somewhat rushed and did not get all the proof reading it should have. Comparing with the book another traveller on the same tour had I noticed her book had much more useful maps in comparison. I wouldn't know about the rest though.

Still not a bad buy but I am wondering how other books compare...

Format: Paperback
Lonely Planet remain my first choice as an independent traveller - the wealth of practical information isn't matched, in my opinion, by any other guidebook series. This latest edition of the Jordan guide is reasonably comprehensive of the country and includes a separate section on diving and snorkelling. The hyped up 'greendex' is more of a gimmick than genuinely useful, but I suppose it's something that will be developed throughout subsequent issues and titles.

It follows the normal Lonely Planet format with sections on general practicalities, background to the country (history, culture etc.) transport, health and language. There's a real scarcity of photographs, with just one glossy inset at the very front. This is based around the highlights (always rather randomly picked). More pictures would definitely improve the book. There are plenty of maps though, which are generally accurate and clear though the Wadi Rum does have some discrepancies - always walk with a guide if you're planning on trekking in this area.

The information is generally reasonably up to date and reliable but should never be relied on too religiously. But Jordan's an easy country to travel in so there should be no problem with verifying anything on which travel depends.

Was a good guide if you are planning your own trip in Jordan. Only thing it was lacking was that it didn't make the reader aware of selling tactics of the Bedouin people in the tourist areas. Found out the hard way but it gave us practice for Egypt!

As usual this Lonely Planet guide gives excellent, useful and helpful advice on where to go, what to avoid and how to make the most of this stunning country whilst staying safe and out of too many hotspots.

I found the book handy during our one week-trip around Jordan. The information was accurate, and the restaurant tips were great. Jordan is a fascinating and beautiful country, and you can get a lot from one week. It's small enough so that you can get from A to B fairly easily. As there were four of us, we often got a car with a driver for our trips, which was a rather reasonable solution and saved us having to map read.
