In the valley near the Dead Sea, there is a magical Hannanat Ma'In. The whole river and waterfall are hot spring water. There is a small cave behind the waterfall. It is a natural steam bath, so from Rome. The era has been a health resort. Now that the resort has been built, you can see the vast mountains and waterfalls by opening the windows. The swimming pool is full of hot spring water, which is a very special experience! The water in the pool is still filled with some cold water, the natural temperature is 50 degrees, very hot feet.
Look, this whole waterfall is hot spring water! The whole hotel is a combination of earthy red walls and wood products. When you open the window, you can see the majestic land outside. The hot spring is not far away. The overall look is very high. I wear a small yellow dress and it is very suitable for a group photo.
The King Abdullah Mosque is named after the first king of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Abdullah I. It is one of Amman's landmarks, and the blue domes decorated with ornate mosaics are striking in a white building. This is the only mosque in Amman open to non-Muslim visitors. The magnificent octagonal prayer hall does not have a pillar support, and the top is a 35-meter-diameter dome engraved with sections of the Islamic Qur'an. Interestingly, there is a church directly opposite the entrance to the mosque. The two religious buildings are just across a street.
I booked my flights to Amman, Jordan and told my friends and family about it. Not one of them didn't warn me about visiting Jordan alone. They were all asking me 'Why Jordan' and 'Why alone'.
With all those questions fed in my mind I reached Amman. The moment I got out of the airport, I forgot all those questions and my worries. I was breathing in relief and everything felt so comfortable. Right from my pick up to the end of my stay after 2 weeks. The Jordanian people are so hospitable, warm and helpful. They are friendly and decent. As long as you respect their culture and be good with them, I didn't find any problem. I had expected them to be conservative and narrow minded but I was absolutely wrong.
Not many people walk in Amman, so you will feel like you are the only one walking in the street sometimes. The food is amazing! I'm a vegetarian but I was happy to have vegetarian Jordanian food.. Shopping souvenirs is fun in downtown. I learned some Arabic words, good and bad taught by my new Jordanian friends and I will never forget them, both..words and my friends. I would love to go back to Jordan again and again..I have fallen in love with it.
The first thing after landing in Amman, the capital of Jordan, was to find a place to fill the stomach. The sufra restaurant we chose was in the form of a cave, and it was a very special Jordanian dish. It feels like Jordan dishes are similar to Moroccan dishes. The appetizers are a variety of salads that can be eaten with scones. The main dish is a variety of meats, and the desserts are more like the sweet style of Turkey.
The most special place in this restaurant is that the cakes are all baked, and the big brother of the scones gives us a live performance. The cake is flat when it is outside. It is especially interesting when it is plucked into the oven. This kind of cake is especially delicious when it is hot, and it will be inferior to the cold. In the following itinerary, there is no such hot cake.
The condiment bottle on the table is a small Middle Eastern man. It is really fun. Later, I saw this spice bottle in the crafts, um... not cheap.
Middle Eastern cuisine is like a big table, especially hard feeling
## The Rainbow Street during the day is cold and clear, and after the night it becomes the most lively area of Amman. The bars on both sides scream in the Middle East. It looks like a standard set of shisha at each table. The city is worth a visit, all kinds of handicrafts and souvenirs are sold here~
Amman makes us revisit the past on every corner reminding us, as well, of the struggles and joys of the present. One or two days here will give you a glimpse of the Roman Empire Era in the region. Talking to a local will give you a different perspective of the history of Israel and Palestine. #travelinspiration #happynewyear
