Good walking shoes with adequate ankle support and rubber/gripping solescare VERY important! (Note: Sandals and open-toed shoes not recommended when visiting the ancient sites and deserts, due to the possibility of encountering scorpions).
Lightweight clothing for spring/summer/fall – cotton is best; heavier clothing is advisable for winter; we recommend long or capri-length trousers.
Swimwear, especially if you will be at the Dead Sea or Aqaba (‘water shoes’ recommended for the Dead Sea due to rocks, salt crystals along shoreline, sandals or flip-flops for resorts and pool-side).
