  • Seasonal weekly market every Friday only, focuses his attention on the folklore and local folk art and paintings and sculptures of Arab wethaviat and Reed. Many exhibits crafts and accessories and food. There is also the scene of lyric and popular parties. It also includes beautiful kids area and a café. This market is local and visiting families to Jordan. The market begins the month 5 and ends with the month 10 each year g

  • A great way to spend a few hours on Friday after brunch on Rainbow Street. Good variety of products but a little pricey. The food court and juices available at the end of the souk is lovely.  more »

  • Small, but very enjoyable, street market. Jara stands for Jebel Amman Residents' Association, and the market was created to add to the Bohemian atmosphere of this rather affluent area just off Rainbow Street. There are stalls selling art works and crafts as well as the usual over-priced antiques. There's a "food court" down at the bottom end where you can buy fast foods and drinks. Very well worth a visit. Open only during the warmer months (i.e. most of the year, but closed in the very cold winter period.)
  • A great intimate market to grab lots of knick knacks and some good food and drinks too. Definitely a spot you should check out if you're visiting Jordan.
  • Its only in summer but its great place for family got small shops mostly hand made things

Where to stay in Amman

Amman accommodations sit at all points on the spectrum, and you'd expect nothing less from a capital as diverse and eclectic as this. The more budget-friendly options, in the form of simple hotels, guesthouses, and hostels, lie predominantly in the downtown area, with the narrow, maze-like streets housing countless accommodations around each corner and over each hill. If you're looking for something a little more luxurious and with calmer surroundings, then the business districts to the northeast represent the best places to look, with high-rise chain hotels jostling for position along the main shopping streets and next to scenic parks and plazas.
