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.

Independent travellers and groups of tourists with a guide - it is not compatible. The majority of tourists are left to themselves at the sight of the group, following their guide who is holding ahead of a closed yellow umbrella, feel a sense of importance. Although I must say that they are too arrogant. On the other hand often on the tour in a large group you feel like You missed something. There is a way — hire a personal tour guide!
We're not talking about a small group, and it is about the journey one on one with your guide. In this case, the "group of tourists" - it's only You and no one else. Now private guides are becoming increasingly popular: professionals, educated in the University and taxi drivers with entrepreneurial spirit.
Why hire a personal guide?
Here are a few reasons that will convince even the most independent and self-assured tourists that personal guide can be useful:
The adapted route: You choose where to go based on their interests and available time. Besides, a personal guide will help you get where difficult or dangerous to go alone. Most importantly, Your guide will lead you only where You want, not sobreda on the way to various locations that do not represent for You any interest. No boring trips to the shop, where produce and sell goods from local materials, or in the so-called "cultural heritage" of the country, which often are not.
Deep knowledge: Normally personal tour guides are well versed in their field of study and in addition put in the tour more awe and love for his native land and history. Private guide, as a rule, always professional and so ...
