Welcome to one the most modern cities of the Kingdom of
Jordan! Amman is the capital of this
Kingdom and is home to over three million residents. Archeological evidence shows that this area
has been inhabited since 8500 BC! This
civilization has survived natural disasters and in more modern times, civil
unrest between different ethnic groups.
Amman enjoys a Mediterranean climate, which means great weather for
spring, summer and fall. Amman is a city
where the old meets new. In the East you
will find single family homes, bazaars and souks; go West and you will find
luxury hotels, towering apartments and office buildings. Go east to soak in the history and old
culture of this city. Take in one of
many museums, the King Hussein Mosque, the Citadel Hill of
Amman, or spend the day shopping in the bazaars or boutiques. Visitors will feel the Western influence, freedom of worship has been a long standing value and the population of its residents is diverse. This metropolis is expanding and there are new city plans and building proposals to mark the landscape. If you want to escape the urban jungle, be sure to visit the beaches at Aqaba or the exceptional geological formations of Wadi Rum. Whatever you re searching for on your journey, Amman will have something to fulfill your quest!
