We walked through the Rainbow Street while trying to find our way to the Citadel. Walking through this road allowed us to see a number of interesting buildings, such as the residence of King Talal, other historical buildings as well as a number of interesting shops and company establishments.

If you are in Amman you have to walk on this historic street. There are a few coffee shops there and restaurants. It's a very nice evening walk especially on Friday.

Total disappointment and the expectation was already low... I won't say avoid it but if you want to go, leave it for when you don't have anything else to do - or you just... More

All it contains are hookah joints. Full of sexually oppressed males who look at women in a disgusting way. The whole place lacks any form of culture.
