to & from

We flew from Istanbul to Amman on Royal Jordanian Air Business- this gives you access to fast track.

  • We hired a driver and van for our whole trip recommended from our friends at the British Embassy

Where to Stay

W Hotel- The Wow Suite. It was recommended to stay there, as it has the best Friday Brunch- (the days of rest are Friday and Saturday).

In retrospect I think we should have stayed at the Four Seasons or the St Regis, it’s more our style.

Where to Eat and Drink

  • Rainbow Street- is a must
  • Al-Quds, best Falafel in Amman and always a line at the window for takeaway
  • Mesh for Brunch at W

What to Do

Amman Citadel- get lost and explore!

  • Roman Theater
  • Rainbow street
  • Go for a hammam (Turkish baths)

inside scoop

Uber worked and was super easy to get around using this and very inexpensive.

skip it

Don’t bring binoculars, these are considered military surveillance equipment, they were in my husbands checked baggage, we waited an hour, and thankfully because of fast track manager, he helped us to get our luggage out, or I fear we would have been there for another day waiting.

What to Pack

Cotes rain coat, harrow jacket, scarf.
