Pleasant, hassle-free street, with a variety of shops and cafes, close to the centre and sights such as the amphitheatre. Some good handicraft shops, and lots selling such things as Dead Sea mud. I bought some booze in one shop - something the man told me was 'gin for girls' (see picture) - very pleasant it was, too... Good place... More

Rainbow Street gets incredibly congested in the evenings. It's a fairly narrow street and the traffic results in a bottleneck jam everyday. During our Jordan travels, we stayed just off Rainbow street for the time we were in Amman. The street has lots of restaurants but we didn't fancy any. The side streets and downtown serve more authentic, healthier food.... More

A good street for street food and typical street life. Some shops for shopping, and souvenirs. You can take a one way walk other way take a cab because of steep climb.

It's in the middle of the city. Shops are mostly full of cheap stuff you can buy everywhere. But athmosphere is nice. And you can find interesting shops and restaurants too. Nice place to hang around, see people, walk etc.

Not sure why anyone raves about this street. When we went it was one long traffic jam and the street is lined with cheap bars and take-away joints including a huge Subway. Nothing authentic or cultural about this place at all. I'd give it a miss

We drove 3 times through the street and we couldn't find a place to park( not even in the side streets) . We... More

the street is the place for traffic jam! they are some good restaurant and some very bad ones. and if you would like to walk you have to park your car a bit far and go walking don’t try to take your car especially during week end

It was fun to visit Rainbow street at different times. I appreciate that it is Ramadan - so shops are closed until late in the evening. The first time we visited was after 10pm and there was a soccer World Cup match being shown in bars and Shisha cafes - the streets were alive with colour, flags of many nations,... More
