Amman, Jordan

Aug 20, 2015
Destinations / Middle East

Jordan’s capital and one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, Amman is a city waiting to be uncovered. As a destination in and of itself or a perfect starting point for further explorations of Jordan, visitors to Amman can expect great weather and friendly locals. From the ancient Roman Amphitheatre to bustling, modern malls, unearth the mystery and mystique of Amman.

GETTING THERE
International flights arrive at Amman Queen Alia International Airport. Upon entry, visitors must purchase an entry visa for around $57. Note: The visa must be purchased in Jordanian dollars, so be sure to exchange money. From the airport, taxi fare is fixed, around $30.

GETTING AROUND
Taxis represent your best bet in Amman. Yellow and gray taxis can easily be hailed; be wary of hailing cabs with other colored logos. Fares begin around 35 cents and increase around 60 cents per kilometer (equal to about 97 cents per mile). Taxis are required by law to use meters. White taxis are shared and follow specific routes. One-way bus fares cost about 50 cents. Drivers do not give change, so pay in the exact amount or overpay.

For an impressive lunch or dinner meeting, consider the traditional Lebanese menu of Bourj al Hamam at InterContinental Amman. The elegant setting nicely complements the cuisine highlights, from a variety of mezze to grilled meats. The spacious dining room leaves businesspeople plenty of space for discreet discussions.
