"Amman, Jordan is one of the safest and wealthiest cities in the middle east. The Kingdom of Jordan is probably the most democratic and moderate Muslim nation in the region. So I'd find no reason to worry. ^^"
"i it is very wonder full country and the medicine very progressed over there go with closed eyes and enjoy"
Khaled Z :
"ok i'll asnwer ur Q's one by one: 1) yes there are good hospitals 2) yes many private hospitals, with good doctors it is close to Iraq, but 3) it's safe 4) no bombs 5) no you dont hear any gunshots 6) there's lots of good food (meats, veggies, fruits, bread...) in the supermarkets, and many supermarkets 7) food might tend to be a bit pricier than US (i dunno where ur from!), normally it depends on the supermarket... 8) night-time isn't much different than day-time, it's safe but as it gets late at night (midnoght and after) finding a taxi is a bit hard 9) not much pollution, just mostly on the main roads, u can smell the car exhaust there..."

I'm traveling from u.s.a to Amman ,jorden I have sickle which recuires pain medications besides the mdes.I take with me can I have my filled perscriptions mailed to me in Amman,jorden.Meaning I would have someone in the states take my perscriptons from the docters office to the pharmacy and then the person would mabey fed x or whatever possible to me in Amman.can this be done ,kep in mind that they are for pain so they are narchotics

jojo :
"I believe there is no problem in mailing medications as long as they are packaged and labeled appropriately and all customs forms are filled out correctly. If you don't want to go through the hassle, your Dr can prescribe 2 months worth for travel reasons (depends on how long you'll be in Amman) I know this might surprise you but, the vast majority of medication in Jordan is over the counter, even antibiotics. However, Jordan has amazing pharmaceutical companies that produce all types of meds and are FDA regulated, and are much less expensive than what you would pay in the States. So, I personally would suggest taking whatever meds you have with you and a letter from your doctor with the scientific name of your medication and take it to Pharmacy1 (very advanced pharmacy, has many branches throughout Amman)..They'll probably be able to fill your prescription hope this helps"
whatever :

"Dear Asker, You have 2 options to go to Queen Alia International Airport. - Al-Abdali bus station. Located downtown Amman. You can ask any taxi driver to take you there. Once you are there ask one of the people who work there about the timing of buses. Al -Abdali buses will not ask you for tickets. - Seven Circle Royal Jordanian terminal. Located in west of Amman- Seventh circle/the Royal Jordanian building. If you are traveling anywhere, you will go there a day before - if you want- secure your luggages and the day after you will go there and the royal Jordanian transportation will take you to the Airport. & while you are in the building, you pay your tax and wight your luggages. So, the next day you will be able to reach the Airport smoothly. I did that before and it was so easy. & its all mentioned here in details: Good luck & have a safe flight"

"On Monday evening I was surprised by a visitor, bearing a package of sweets. Y. had arrived from Beirut. In the morning, she had taken off from Lebanon, then Amman and then she landed at Ben-Gurion International Airport. Had it not been for her four-hour delay at the airport here, the trip could have been quite short..."
