Jordan's only coastal and port city, Aqaba offers a wide range of water-related activities offshore to accompany its mix of historic buildings back on land.
Kick off your visit on the 5th (Sat): kick back and relax at South Beach. Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to Sharif Hussein Bin Ali, take in the exciting artwork at Arts of Sham Countries Art Gallery, and then discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

Plan a trip to Aqaba easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to Aqaba is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and car; or drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Riyadh to Aqaba due to the time zone difference. Expect slightly colder evenings in Aqaba when traveling from Riyadh in October, with lows around 25°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Petra - Wadi Musa.
