Jordan’s culture mixes influences from east and west, old and new.
As a melting pot of different ethnic groups, the liberal nature of this country has allowed immigrants to keep their traditions, while assimilating into the greater culture. Amman has plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants and art galleries. About 95% of the population is Muslim, but there is an important Christian minority of 5%. Jordan is home to Bedouins, Palestinians, Armenians, Circassians and Kurds amongst others.
The younger generation has created a unique local pop culture, and Jordan is considered the IT capital of the middle east, and home to the best educated population in the Levant.
