King’s Highway in Jordan
Jordan is not a big place, so driving distances in Jordan tend to be relatively short.
Below are driving distances between major cities in Jordan:
Amman to Petra (Wadi Musa): 230km
Amman to Madaba: 32km
Amman to Jerash: 51km
Amman to Dead Sea: 40km
Petra (Wadi Musa) to Aqaba: 97km
Due to the mountainous topography of Jordan, driving distances can be deceiving.
What looks like only a hundred kilometers on a map can take several hours due to winding mountain roads and steep ascents and descents.
Make sure to leave yourself plenty of extra time if you are driving long distances in Jordan.
