The little boutiques off Rainbow, on the side street beside the intercon behind circle 2, are a great start, and the soap house is a lovely diversion. But Rainbow itself is home to yummy food vendors, good restaurants, and coffee shops. It is Amman at its most accessible to outsiders. The Friday market is an especially nice introduction.

Went in the winter when stuff is unfortunately closed. A couple interesting shops, and some good food, but can find that in other parts of the city too. They have a craft fair type bazaar in the summer though, very much wish we could have gone to that as many a local told us that was good and not incredibly... More

This street is one of the oldest streets in Amman, with the best modern cafes and restaurants, we always go for a walks in there, and treats ourselves with a nice ice-creams or a drink, you can enjoy the walk, have a drink or dinner, everything is just around you. i recommend it in summer nights.

Having read fabulous things about the cafes and markets in Rainbow Street, we were very disappointed. It was within walking distance of our hotel, one of the few attractions that were. However, there seemed to be nothing much happening there. Yes there are cafes but they didn't seem to be all that inviting and there was little in the way... More

a nice traditional street in the heart of Amman which is keeping its old flavor. the street is great for walk at evening and includes lots of cafes, restaurants, and shops.

Great combination of shopping and drinking on this popular street in Amman. If you are in town for a few days, this is a mandatory stop for an evening stroll!

THis street goes to life at night with tons of cafes and restaurants. It is nice but you can encounter some dodgy people on the way. Nothing worrying though. My advice is scan the street first then pick a favourite spot and sit for a drink/bit/shisha. If you are there at night, check out Jara market off rainbow. Well worth... More

This place could be much more improved if the cars traffic could be somehow controlled or removed. Good quality coffee shops and restaurants are there. Tourism police is there which is a friendly team. Nice view of the city from different places. Overall a fine area and must be visited if you are around.
