A nice introduction to our country as Madaba and Mount Nebo is on your way to the Dead Sea from the Amman, and of course both are very important sites with many fascinating things to see.
The best time to start is 9 am, and spending one hour in Madaba and another hour in Mount Nebo. The trip in total takes around 5 hours.
The Baptism Site is on your way to the Dead Sea Hotel from the Airport and Amman, where you will see where Jesus was Baptized, if you are interested you can go inside the same water.
Take a taxi to Muhajeren Bus station in Amman it is a small bus station near Downtown Area around 15 minutes walking from the markets after that take a bus to Sweimeh Village and from there charter a car to your hotel or a beach.
This is not recommended at all it is hectic, not comfortable for single women, and just would take so much time for very little savings.
There is tours done By Jett company to the Dead Sea and back and also other big companied like Dallas and Mawakeb, Hence these trips are on a fixed time schedule and you need to take a taxi to the meeting point.
Therefor if you are a group it is better to hire your own driver for more flexibility.
