What should I pack for Amman?

Keep clothing on the conservative side when packing for your return flights to Amman. Avoid pieces that are too form-fitting or revealing. Men holidaying on flights to Amman should keep their shoulders and legs covered, and women should also cover their arms. Women are expected to cover their heads while visiting temples, so keep a scarf with you to use on those occasions. The exact clothing to pack depends on the season that you’ll be travelling into Queen Alia International Airport (AMM). The summer months can be intensely hot during the day, so bring along lightweight clothes, such as loose-fitting pants and shirts and long skirts.

The winter months get cold in Jordan, so pack warmer pants, jumpers, and a jacket if you book airfare to Amman for a winter holiday. Lastly, a pair of sturdy shoes comes in handy for all the walking around the city as well as the many hikes you can find around Jordan.
