ConsBoring, dusty, leering men, lack of pavements

“Chilled out capital!”

published 23/09/2011

ProThe charm perhaps lies in its slight blandness

ConsNot as much to do as Damascus or Cairo!

I arrived in Amman on a JET bus from Jordan's second city Irbid in the north. I was in my element, enjoying that "just crossed a border, in a new country" feel. The journey over from Galilee in Israel had been remarkably easy but in my true style, I managed to find a way of doing things...

ProA good capital but I didn't find it very interesti...

ConsNothing much to do.

I went to Jordan for my family holiday and we went and stayed with some of our friends. I liked it a lot because I had so much fun. However there wasn't a lot to do because there the city didn't offer a lot. There weren't many things to do but if I stayed there for longer then I probably would...
