Situated atop of a mountain or “jabal” with various district and neighbourhoods that can help you navigate the chaotic streets; Amman is a bustling amalgamation of the old and the new. With high rise buildings erecting from the newly constructed Abdali complex to quaint shisha spots in the downtown al-ballad area; you’re only a taxi ride away from whatever suits your mood.
Though Amman has many well known streets, most addresses are rarely used and mail is typically delivered to neighbourhood post offices. Because of this, people will typically us nearby landmarks to describe locations. Don’t worry, this if far more efficient than it sounds, so don’t be afraid to ask a local.
Pro-Tip: If you have a smartphone, download Uber or Careem for easier access to transportation.
