One of the next city guides we would like to launch as part of our fight against overtourism is Amman, the capital of Jordan!
Unfortunately, to most travelers, Amman (and Jordan in general) is either surrounded by misconceptions or a complete mystery, which is a shame because it has a lot to offer. We know that there is plenty to love about Amman, and we need your help to prove this to the rest of the world!
Amman is an extremely interesting city, wherein antiquity coexists with modernity. Old ruins, like the Amman Citdael and Roman Theatre, tell a lot of this city’s roots and remind us of its rich history. These are but a few of this city’s highlights. While they certainly are impressive, they tell only a small fragment of this city’s story. A city is nothing without its people, which is why we want to focus on the people, on locals like you, on your stories and experiences within this wonderful place.
So what is it like to experience Amman like a local? Where can you get the best coffee or local Mansaf? Where do locals relax or celebrate? This is what we and many travelers want to know!
Are you an Amman loving local?
