Petra Moon Tourism Services – Kathy highly recommends this tour company if you want to see many things in just a little time. Great guides ensure that you will have fun and learn a lot, even if you don’t mean to.

Habibah Sweets – One of Jordan’s oldest confectionaries.  If you can’t visit the store in Amman, check out their airport location.

Zalitimo Brothers – Another longstanding Jordan sweets shop with locations around the country and in the airport.

Petra Kitchen – Top off a day exploring Petra by learning how to cook like a Jordanian.

Semiramis – This Lebanese restaurant is Kathy’s favorite Chicago spot for Middle Eastern food. It’s definitely worth a trip off the beaten path.
