West Amman

Of the other quarters of the city, you’re most likely to visit sprawling, relatively wealthy West Amman, home to practically all of the city’s upmarket hotels, as well as restaurants and nightlife. Key areas to explore include Jabal Al Lweibdeh, an attractive residential neighbourhood that is home to the National Gallery, and the lower reaches of Jabal Amman, particularly around 1st Circle, where the cafés and quirky shops of Rainbow Street make for some of the city’s most pleasant strolling.
