Getting Around Jordan

Amman and the surrounding cities are relatively small, and most places of interest - hotels and restaurants - are well-known. Street addresses are rarely used - mail is delivered only to post office boxes located at neighbourhood post office centres, while only the larger street names are commonly known. When giving directions, therefore, people will usually tell you the area or a nearby landmark (a large hotel, ministry building or supermarket, for example) and specific instructions from there. This works more efficiently than it sounds.
 
Amman itself is built on seven hills, or "jabals," each of which more or less defines a neighbourhood. Many jabals once had a traffic circle (roundabout) at their peak and, although most of the circles have now been replaced by traffic lights, the junctions are still known as 1st Circle, 2nd Circle... 8th Circle. Other Amman neighbourhoods were once separate villages, now swallowed up by the expanding city.
 
One final word...If you're having trouble finding your way, don't hesitate to ask a passerby, as most people will be delighted to help.

How to reach major cities in Jordan:

 

Taxis

Small taxis are the most common transport mode in Jordan, especially in and between its major cities. There is a huge number of taxis in service that transport passengers from heart of the capital Amman to the south to Aqaba and north to Irbid and Ramsa. You will find these vehicles in white color, while private taxis are yellow or grey. Taxis are used widely in streets of the capital Amman and most of major Jordanian cities. In front of hotels and restrooms you won’t lose them, as they can be easily found. In addition, these cars are secured and controlled by the government system. Also, they have strict system for fare. They are using technology to calculate the fare. You can find this within the taxi in form of digital monitor. Drivers are educated and discipline, who know how to follow rules and treat customers with respect. They are well trained and know exactly all streets and places of each area.
