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.

  • The Citadel – situated on the highest hill in Amman, offers beautiful views of the temple of Hercules
  • The Roman Theatre and its spectacular views of the modern downtown (especially during the night)
  • Umayyad Palace & King Abdullah Mosque
  • The village of Ajlun with its fortress and magnificent view into the Jordan Valley
  • Jerash – one of the most preserved Graeco-Roman cities in the Middle East

  • If you love street food, try a shawarma, the Arab equivalent of a doner kebab. The very best shawarma in Jordan comes from Reem, a stall located by the 2nd Circle. It’s always busy and frequented late at night by the young & trendy.
  • Gentlemen, miss your shave for a couple of days and then visit a local barber in the alleyways of Downtown Amman for an old-fashioned cut-throat shave and a trim, with all the powders and pomades. A fantastic local experience for little more than a few pounds.
  • Even if you’re staying in a fancy uptown hotel, venture down to Hashem’s, a traditional street side restaurant off Feisal Square. It stays open 24 hours a day, serving bowls of hummus and glasses of scalding hot tea.
  • Whatever you do, don’t miss out on the magnificent panoramic rooftop views from the terrace of the Wild Jordan café, off Rainbow Street. They do a fabulous frozen lemonade cocktail with fresh mint too.
  • Jordan’s only pedestrianised shopping zone is on Wakalat Street in the glitzy uptown district of Sweifi yyeh. Think global brands, fashion boutiques, pavement cafés and some great people watching.
  • Looking for the perfect holiday gifts? Head to the Wild Jordan Nature Shop in down town Amman. Local products made in the traditional way by local people and the money goes to a good cause.
  • Jordanian wine is particularly good. St George, from the Zumot winery, has won several international awards.
