5 Spots to Die for in Jabal Al Wiebdeh

Ever since we began our journey in 2007, we were all about showcasing the other side of Amman, the artistic side. Maybe that’s why we opened our first shop back in 2009 in Jabal el Weibdeh. It was home, so we set our first tent there!

Just as soon as you get past those tiny alleys, and you find yourself facing the Paris Circle, you’ll get an overview of what awaits you in that area.

 

So, if you’re someone who’s into the artistic scene, if you’re someone who appreciates the simple life rather than the extravagant, the tiny alleys rather than crowded highways, you may find here the top 5 places to go to in Amman, particularly in Jabal el Weibdeh:
