What is it like to live in Amman? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

Living in amman has a different style , it is so mixed with the modern life style and the arabian culture ,

the city is really crowded , and the night life is really good , but u have to make sure of the places you attend .

the student life style is like every where , school and then u just go out and hang out with your friends , go to diffr\erent cafees , which you will find a lot of hookah or shisha , that both genders do smoke it .
on weekend you can go partying or attend some events or maybe go hiking and cycling beside the dead sea .,

How much does it cost to live in Amman?

well , amman is pretty expensive comparing with other arabian countries , but like 500 jd amonth is enough if u can manage your spendings ,
depends on where you go , plus youhaveto make sure that living in a country is not like visiting it for short period , so dont rush everything out ,, and spend alot of money without being aware .

hmm maybe the advice would be for girls . i know its ur freedom to dress wat ever u want ,
but make sure to dress right for the right place ,
exaple , club dress is for the club , the beach is for the beacch
and fo example down town cz it is really crowded try not to wear mini stuff . for ur own sake ,so ppl wont stare or somthing , cz its like a public place
thats all ,
ohh and it taxi make sure that on the counter thing to always restart it when ever u get in
it starts from 0.030 something like that .
and on the bill make sure every thing u ordered is on it , that they didnt add any extra stuff .
