Amman, the city of contrasts

on 06 March 2021

Amman, the capital of Jordan, is a fascinating city of contrasts – a unique blend of old and new, situated on a hilly area between the desert and the fertile Jordan Valley.

In the commercial heart of the city, ultra-modern buildings, hotels, smart restaurants, art galleries and boutiques rub shoulders comfortably with traditional coffee shops and tiny artisans' workshops. Amman’s neighborhoods are diverse and range in cultural and historical context from hustle and bustle of the downtown markets to the art galleries of Jabal Lweibdeh and the modern shopping district of Abdali.

A large number of international airlines service Amman daily. A bus service leaves the airport every half an hour to Amman's Abdali bus station, but the easiest way to get to the city is by taxi. The journey should take about half an hour.

From Aqaba: If you’re flying into the Kingdom through Aqaba and would like to visit Amman during your stay you can take one of the daily flights from King Hussein International Airport in Aqaba. If you’d like to go by land, the drive is around 4 hours through the Desert Highway and 5 hours through the more scenic King’s Highway.
