Amman 9
I had been in Jordan for almost 4 years. I found it the safest, peaceful, zero crime rate, beautiful country. The people of Jordan are strong, polite, good looking faced, intelligent and honest.

No bother to others for nothing. They also have a rich Islamic history and loving people to human as well as Islam. I wish them more prosperous in their lives.
