Kan Zaman, on a hilltop about 12km south of the city, is a renovated complex of stables, storehouses, and a residential complex, that has become a major tourist attraction. Kan Zaman, which means ‘once upon a time’, combines a turn-of-the-century atmosphere with some of the best food and crafts of Jordan. The paved courtyard is lined with shops selling handicrafts, jewellery and spices. Visitors can smoke shisha at the coffee shop or enjoy excellent Arabic food at the traditional restaurant. Some unusual entertainment is also on the menu.

Aside from the popular downtown souks, Amman, like most major cities offers shoppers a wide variety of choices, from large shopping malls to small back-street art and craft shops and everything in between.
