Customer Travel Tip: Jerash is well worth a visit. The taxi services from the hotels and hostels is more expensive than the taxi from the streetm, always shop around for a price.

Disliked: Beer at a bar was very expensive.

Customer Travel Tip: Was traveling on a tight budget, if you are too and would like to save on eating out, try the Hashim and Al-Quds Restaurants on Al-Malek-al-Hussein street, downtown Amman.

Liked: The Amphitheater, The Citadel, Hashim Restaurant, Jordan Tower Hotel.

Disliked: Taxi drivers who quote absurd prices for very short distances and who change the agreed price half way through. Rude immigration officers at the airport.

Customer Travel Tip: prepare for v big differences in prices from tourist to local prices. The same goes for ways of getting about. But it's hard to do this unless you speak Arabic at least to a good basic standard.

Liked: the possibility of breaking out of the tourist experience and finding your own way around. My answers to the above are based on my own experience.

Disliked: not reasonably.
