The equivalent of the Latin Quarter in Paris : a whole street full of cafes, restaurants and trendy shops, and Jordan's 'cool people' and tourists and expats. Be sure to walk to the end of the street before choosing your coffee shop because the nicer ones are not necessarily the first seen. On fridays, be sure to visit the "souk... More

Seesha, tea-coffee lounges with a few souvenir - home decor stores make it a good place to walk around in the evening.

Every Friday there is a local market with stalls where the locals sell jewellery, scarves, clothes etc. I cannot remember the name of the market but the street... More

Rainbow Street is the artsy, hipster hub of Amman Jordan. During the day you'll easily find a table at a great coffee shop or restaurant, and the service and food will be good. If you're looking for an on-the-edge tee shirt or a Greenwich-Village-NY-like trinket shop you'll likely find it on Rainbow Street. At night (only drove through at night)... More

Rainbow street is a long strip that offers many shops, cafes, restaurants and bars in the heart of Amman. Some of the F&B venues offer stunning views over Jabal Amman and Downtown. Downside is that it is a very crowded area on weekends and can be quite noisy and crowded. I would personally recommend visitors check it out in the... More

Great place to escape the hectic downtown area 10 minutes down the hill. There are various bars, restaurants and shops around. Some bars, like Books@café and Wild Jordan, have good views off the city.

Not really a destination, so much as a good street to walk along and duck into a few shops. If were an actual tourist destination, he city need to better pick up street rubbish and make a bit more presentable. Not flashy, just pull the weeds and fix the footpath. The street was quiet on Friday midday, but Saturday night... More
