I was invited to take a 12 day trip to Jordan by the Jordan Tourism Board, to mainly focus on eating delicious Jordanian food, but also to see some of the main attractions within the Kingdom. I want to say a big thank you to the Jordan Tourism Board for making this trip happen!
I’m based in Bangkok, Thailand, and so on Day 1 of our trip, my wife and I caught a direct flight from Bangkok to Amman, Jordan with Royal Jordanian airlines. The flight was alright, and it took about 10 hours on our direct flight. We arrived to Queen Alia International Airport, early in the morning at about 5 am, where we were greeted by a representative from Visit Jordan, and proceed to go through customs and immigration and grabbed out bag. We then met with our driver and guide, who brought us directly to La Locanda Boutique Hotel, where we would be staying for the next few days.
As soon as I arrived to Amman, I was hungry – after all, it was already noon lunchtime in Bangkok. Luckily it was about 7 am when we checked into our hotel, and so we dropped off our bags and immediately went to have breakfast as the hotel. I’m a huge fan of Jordanian breakfast, and I had a bunch of raw vegetables, some bread, and lots of hummus and finally some ful medames for breakfast. It was a fantastic change from what I normally eat for breakfast.
After finishing breakfast, we headed back to our room to sleep for a couple hours, before heading out to do some eating and exploring in Amman. You’ll find out what we did on Day 2 in Amman, on the next video!
