Introducing Amman


Amman, the capital city of Jordan, is the wealthiest city in the country with its dazzling white buildings, chic restaurants, luxurious hotels, art galleries, boutiques, traditional cafés, and tiny craft stores. As a result of this wealth, the city has half of Jordan’s entire population. The city has green valleys on one side and deserts on the other. This paradox makes Amman an astonishing, mysterious city.
