    Overrated in my opinion, but nice enough, I guess.
    Lots of restaurants, cafes, trendy sort of places with umbrella covered walkways, lampshaded streetlights, Solidarity grafitti, painted steps.
    There are burger bars, restaurants in old buses (I got a much needed slush!) and some overpriced souvenir shops.
    I expected much MORE given the hype about how cool it is. It is modern though, so I guess that is the attraction.
    I got a taxi up and walked back down (easier to explore anywhere in Amman that way, it is very hilly). Nice views of the citadel on the way down.

    As a non-Muslim, it was an interesting experience going into a mosque, especially because in many places that I visited I was not allowed to. This one has a stunning interior. The odd thing about my experience was that you have to exit through a gift shop as if you were at Disney World. It was at that point that I experience the pushiest salesperson that I encountered in two weeks of traveling in the MENA region.

    We turned to Naje to get the most authentic experience; and he delivered this and more!

    We were able to describe the experiences we were looking for native to Jordan and the Jordanian people, and Naje was able to tap into exactly what we needed see and experience.

    We learned about the city or Amman, took exiting and native drives to excellent restaurants, and experience food with Bedouins, and other cafe's and eateries. His tours for us included such interesting places that most don't know about in Jordan. In Petra he helped us make unusual accommodations to tour both via horse and via golf cart. He is able to assess well to what we needed, and it made our entire experience a most memorable one.

    Naje is also professional and trustworthy, and goes above an beyond. He even went out of his way to bring my husband a coat to use on our last day's tour as it was getting colder.

    We highly recommend, and can't wait to book more tours with Naje / Lilias Tours!

    Dropped by during mid-day prayers to experience the culture and devotion of the people. Was able to remove my shoes and observe from an outer courtyard. Located in the busy downtown market area of Amman.

    Interesting building , probably not an absolute must see but if you are Amman vicinity for more than a few days,it’s an interesting and quiet spot and different to the more well trodden sites

    I frequented Jadal during my stay in Amman for a number of reasons: firstly, off-the-beaten-path, the cafe is quiet, and escapes the noise of the centre of the city;

    as an anti-cafe, you never spend more than 3.5JD, making it affordable, excellent value for money;

    the cafe is very conscientious, with a garden and a recycling scheme, making it one of the greener places in Amman, for sure;

    the staff are incredible, they are so friendly and kind, always keen for a chat, they know everyone, and are really great people to know whilst in Jordan;

    the drinks are unreal (do yourself a favour and get the iced hibiscus);

    the outdoor space gets a nice amount of sun, but provides plenty of shade if you are working, and there are also indoor spaces for when it is too hot to be outdoors;

    They have a number of events on, for everybody to attend;

    They have excellent wifi, and plugs all around, making it a great place to study.

    This is, without a doubt, my favourite spot in Amman, and I cannot recommend it enough.

    The old post office is one of our stops from the walking tour. It was free to visit as well, we had time to explore the small rooms and took a photo of the history. It includes photos from the previous owners? Some news and old articles are clippings framed from the past.

    It also has a great view of the terrace where you can take a photo below the busy city of Amman.

    An ingenious water collection system. The only well-preserved objective of the entire archaeological site of the Citadel.

    Passed this from behind on the road in the taxi into town and wondered what it was- it must have been an impressive structure at the time it was built. Not a lot remains now but there is a model on site to show you how it would have looked. There are signs around the main features to explain what they were, and lots of architectural details/carvings lying around. The site is being restored so is not really open to the public, but I got to look around. Located on a side street just off Hashem St and right opposite King Faisal St. Worth a tiny detour to get a little flavour of Amman's roman heritage. Make sure to look round the back too.
