    Any first time visitor to Amman may be forgiven for thinking that the place is just one huge, unplanned sprawl. While that may be true, the city is an interesting metaphor for the confidence sweeping Arab nations, though in this case the American influence is strong to see. Much like Beirut now and Cairo in the 1960s, Amman is a fascinating, cosmpolitan city representing not just the crossroads of various Arab cultures, but also touch points with the west. My broad characterisation of the place is not dissimilar to parts of Germany or Switzerland: one the one hand embracing the global village, on the other, quite conservative and rightly holding on to its own traditions and identity. For all of those reasons, I love the place.

    Amman was the gateway to The Holy Land in Jordan. As Jordan's largest city, it's busy and crowded, with lots of cars and people. Coming into and out of the city, you see scores of homes and businesses along rolling hills. What a sight to see! The streets were clean and we were treated very nicely by the locals. To get around, know where you need to go based on the 8 circles. Most importantly, it helps to know which circle your hotel is located.

    Amman is a wonderful city that I want to explore more. The Old Testament makes much more sense when you see Jordan.

    Friendly people and clean city with very nice restaurants with local food. The old market is a bit of a busy crazy place but still interesting to visit.

Description

Jordan's capital is an international economic hotspot, and bursting at the seams with a booming population. Multinational corporations have made it the second largest hub for economics, only behind Dubai, but despite this, tourism thrives. Experience the blend of multiple ethnic cuisines, where Mediterranean meets Arabian flavors. Check out ancient temples and modern souks standing side-by-side in the downtown heart of al-Balad. Marvel at the Citadel Hill and Temple of Hercules. Or simply immerse yourself in the burgeoning nightlife scene, and join throngs of tank-top-clad Middle Eastern youth at the city's wealth of nightclubs and shisha (hookah) lounges.
