About Amman

Jordan’s largest city and capital Amman is notable for its population of 4 million. Besides tourists going for research purposes, the city isn’t very well known. Tourists who do visit the city say that they end up having more fun and discover more things than they expected to. In recent years Amman has rapidly developed and is compared to Gulf cities like Abu Dhabi, Doha, and Kuwait. Accordingly, it is becoming a popular tourism route along the Arabian Peninsula. In the summer the weather is 45 degrees, while in the winter it is 25 degrees and because of this tourists mostly prefer to come during the spring and winter.  The city features Jordan’s largest airport. Serving 12 million passengers a year, the Queen Alia International Airport can be accessed by many major cities. The city center surrounds Jabal Amman and the Abdoun Bridge. Buses are widely used for urban transportation as well as the rail system, due to the lack of metro lines. Souk Jara, the city’s local bazaar, stands out for being very popular among tourists who are shopping for both everyday items and souvenirs.

In addition to Amman’s history, its cuisine is also very impressive. So much so that the New York Times praised it for its ability to turn rich vegetables and spices into fine cuisine.  It is known as the motherland of the popular ‘falafel’. In short, Amman is a city that has created wonders by integrating both Arabic and Mediterranean culture in its cuisine. Among must-see sites are the King Hussein Mosque, Jabal Amman area, and the Temple of Hercules in the Amman Citadel. Unlike other Arab cities you can find many restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in the area, a fact that is related to the high number of western tourists.
