Things to do in Amman (Jordan)

Experience and see the beauty of Amman (Jordan)

Amman is the capital and largest city of Jordan and the country’s economic, political and cultural center. Amman is the largest city in the Levant region and the sixth-largest city in the Arab world.

It was named one of the Middle East and North Africa’s best cities according to economic, labor, environmental, and socio-cultural factors.

The earliest evidence of settlement in the area is a Neolithic site known as “Ain Ghazal”. Previously it was known as Rabbath Ammon, which was the capital of the Ammonites, then as “Philadephia”, and finally as “Amman”.

Amman also twinned with over thirty cities throughout the world, including Moscow, Beijing, and Miami. Amman exhibits extreme examples of microclimate, where neighborhoods or certain areas can experience several different kinds of weather than other areas/neighborhoods. Amman was referred to as the “New Beirut” in 2010 and is considered one of the most westernized cities in the Middle East. Because of the high-quality healthcare services in Amman and Jordan as a whole, it has become one of the most popular medical tourism destinations in the world.
