Modern Busling City

I have been there on two rather long business trips in 2011 and 2012. I was surprised with the modernity of the city and hos well off it appears. In the older town there are neighborhoods that are a bit rundown but overall it is a city full of nice apartments and even mansions are not in short supply. The people are very nice and many are used to dealing with tourists and speak some English. There are lots of good restaurants and excellent hotels. Within easy driving distance there are many historic sites worth a visit. Petra takes a full a day-trip just to get a quick overview. The traffic is not that bad. It is nothing like Bangkok or Manila.
