# Aqaba travel guideIf you thought Jordan was all about history and hiking, Aqaba is your answer. Diving in the red sea was one of the highlights of our trip to Jordan. Healthy corals, diverse sea life and ship wrecks were absolute visual treats
Wadi Rum -Aqaba – Red sea diving - Overnight @ Aqaba• To everyone who thinks Jordan is about history, desert and hiking, this is your answer.
Take the 2-hour bus ride from Petra to Aqaba and reach the port city on Red Sea's Gulf of Aqaba.
Day 4 started (again) with a tight schedule. After having a quick breakfast at our campsite, we set out for Aqaba (20 JD for the taxi), which was 30 minutes away. First thing we did was to reserve a seat in a bus to Amman (20 JD pp).The idea of coming down to Aqaba was to take a dip in the Read Sea, and after a lot of thought we ended up snorkeling. It was a lot of fun (as it was uninstructed) and a little painful (as I couldn't keep away for corals).We wrapped up quickly to make sure we don't miss the 4 pm bus and by night we had reached the last leg of our trip - Amman.
It is the city on the shores of Mediterranean Sea. It borders Saudi Arabia on one side and Israel on the other. And if you take a boat ride in the sea 10 mins, into that one can easily see Egypt. It is famous for shopping and beaches. Temperature here in general is 5-7 degrees higher than Amman. It city has beautiful corals underneath its water one can enjoy Glass bottom ride, snorkeling, scuba diving etc.
