When to fly to Amman
For many visitors to Jordan, it is the temperature that determines when is the best time to go. Between March and May, the temperatures are warm but pleasantly so. If you want to experience some really sizzling heat, though, the summer months of June to August will give you plenty of that! Just make sure to pack some sun cream if you go during the hottest months, to cover up with light clothing, and to stay indoors when the sun burns most fiercely. Visit in April to avoid the rainier season in March, but watch out for the sandy desert wind that replaces the rain! If you are willing to pay that little bit extra, then why not travel during Eid to experience the bright colours and joyful festivals associated with this period? The city usually takes part in a week-long celebration at the end of July to mark Eid and the end of the fasting period of Ramadan. Islamic New Year in the last week of October is another good time to come to the city, as it really comes alive with food, drink, music, and other festivities. A great way to travel cheaply is to visit Amman outside of the school holidays if you can. The colder months of December and January can also be quieter times, and make for a wonderful Christmas holiday with the family.
Getting around Amman
Taxis are the best way to get around the city as they are a relatively reasonably-priced and easy way to explore the local attractions.
