Amman: tourist information, weather, seasons

General information about the Amman

Современный Амман (Иордания)

Amman (Ammann, Amman) – Jordan's capital and largest city of the country. The city's population of 1.9 million people. Be around almost the entire political, cultural and economic life of the country. Amman is located near the Western border with Israel, at an altitude of 773 metres above sea level. The city lies on seven hills, which symbolically is reflected on the flag of Jordan in the form of a seven pointed star.

Amman – one of the oldest cities. His story will pick up beginning at least in the 13th century BC. Even then, the city called at that time Rabbath-Ammon, was the capital of the Kingdom Ammosova. During its existence the ancient city repeatedly passed from hand to hand of the other state, being conquered by the Assyrians, then the Persians, then the Greeks, then the Egyptians, then the Romans. At one time the city was Philadelphia, given to him by the Egyptian ruler. In the 8th century, the city was almost completely destroyed by several earthquakes and has existed as a village in ruins until the 19th century. Only in 1887, the town began to recover and grow until in 1946 it finally became the capital of the independent state of Jordan.

Today Amman save a little from the old identity. To the disappointment of many tourists, the city is too developed, built modern buildings and is very similar to European cities. But in fact it is only at first glance. In older areas on the outskirts still retaining the traditional flavor, old buildings, markets, narrow streets.

Amman is not a very popular place for most tourists, but skip this town is almost impossible (and not worth it to skip it), as the city is, in most cases, is the main gate through which tourists enter the country (here is the main international airport of the country), and many of them stay in the city for a day or two before you continue your journey across the country.

The city has no beaches, it is 35 miles from the nearest shore of the dead sea. But there is a wide selection of premium hotels and budget accommodation options, a large number of restaurants, shops, museums. There is pretty decent historical attractions. Besides, Amman is one of the most beautiful capitals in the middle East. There is in Amman and evening and night entertainment: bars and night clubs, although so far they have not too much. And in the modern district of Abdali is a tourist district with a pedestrian street. Good opportunities Amman offers for shopping. First of all we are talking about the traditional trade in street markets, but it also has modern shopping centers.

By and large, for tourists there is everything to comfortably spend two or three days to explore the city. Longer than three days here, perhaps, linger not. Moreover, it is better to leave a visit to Amman by the end of your journey across the country to right here to fly home.

There are several variants,but in any case the route you have to be on their own. Here in a nutshell information:
From Pattaya you need to get into Satun (city in the South of Thailand), and from there by ferry or drive to Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis in Malaysia already.
I would prefer the first option, Satun, as passed through twice, it was fine. To Satun from Pattaya can be reached with a stopover in Bangkok. Travel from Bangkok to the southern bus station and there change to the bus to Satun. Previously, these buses were a lot, now looked up the schedule, there are very few, maybe just schedule them there. But even then that is quite suitable, it is night, will arrive in Satun in the morning and in the afternoon we will depart on the ferry. Basically about Satun all we've got painted -
The second option is via Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis. If by bus, you must first get from Bangkok to hat Yai (, and from there to Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis as you prefer, and then onto the ferry. According to this embodiment can be on the train ride.

Problems with the highest probability, I would say 99.999% of will not arise, if your passport is not full of Thai stamps. You have, as I understand it, is not full, so you can not suspect illegal work in Thailand. With regard to the actions of visa stamp, then don't worry about it. When you leave from Thailand to a neighboring country or any other, you put a stamp on exit and entry stamp will be cancelled automatically. But when you go back, you will put back on 30 days. ...

January 12.
Rested and tanned, on the train, we travel to Agra in the car the AC-3 class with bed linen, air conditioning and a conductor. Train from Varkala to Delhi is always not enough seats. The tickets I bought on the first day they went on sale, but the lower places have not been, I had to go in different cars on the middle and top shelves.

January 15.
Went long, the train arrived in Agra late on the hour.
This time in the Taj Mahal decided to go a day not to wander in the morning in thick fog as last year. On the Bank of the river took the boat and swept to the middle of the river to make a great photo of the Taj at sunset. After the tour, have dinner on the rooftop overlooking the Taj to the sounds of the evening prayer of the muezzins from different mosques.
