Not only does Amman boasts to having the worlds largest flapping flag over its city center, Amman is one of the most welcoming and easy-going cities I have ever stayed in. The bowl shape of the old city center, with its white/rose stone buildings, is striking; there’s a night life here; and you can take day trips to all the Roman Remains, castles and other historic sites and be back for dinner.
More on Amman please. Tip: Be sure to spend time at Books @ Cafe. It’s books, live music and a bar.
