About AMMAN HOLIDAYS
The Capital of Jordan, Amman is a city of contrasts situated between the desert and the lush Jordan valley. The commercial heart of the city is modern with a selection of restaurants, bars and shops, whilst the old city next to it has traditional coffee shops and tiny artisans’ workshops. At night there is plenty to do with a choice of restaurants and nightclubs. Amman fascinates the visitor and is one of the oldest continuously occupied cities in the world.
When To Go
Jordan has a diverse Middle Eastern Climate with hot summers. Although travel is possible throughout the year, not all months are the best time to travel. Spring is more ideal to travel as temperatures are not too high reaching into high twenties during the day with cool nights. Winter can sometimes be harsh as desert regions can experience short rainfalls and cold nights and even in Petra sometimes snow.
