Amman might not be on everyone's itinerary when visiting Jordan, but if you have a few hours to kill like we did last weekend here are some tips on things to do in Amman.
1. Wander around Rainbow Street
This historic area is a delight to spend a few hours. Rainbow street owes its name to an old cinema that used to stand here but since has been torn down. The streets surrounding Rainbow Street are lined with historic houses, art shops and cafes. Take a breather at the Books@cafe where your coffee comes with amazing views across the city.
2. Shop in Down Town and its Souks
3. Soak up history in the Citadel
From the theatre hop in a cab to the Citadel which perched high on a hill. There are ruins from numerous different eras here, but the best bit is the 360 view of Amman. If you're here during prayer time you can hear the calls to prayer echo across the entire city.
4. Visit the Blue mosque
Okay Istanbul it ain't but having to put on an abaya made for a lot of giggling and some good photo ops.
