Image Today’s Amman has both a modern and historic touch. A large contrast exists between the districts of West Amman and the districts of East Amman.
West Amman is the lively, modern part of the city. This part of Amman is the more prosperous one. Most 5 and 4-star hotels are located in West Amman. The view is mostly dominated by parks and wide boulevards with apartment and office buildings.
Shmeisani and Abdali are amongst the most important districts of West Amman, as they serve as business centers. Other important districts include Abdoun, which is the up-scale residential area and Jabal Amman and one of the historical districts.
East Amman is much older than the west, and is where the majority of Amman's residents live, mainly the working class. Old Amman is filled with souks, bazaars, small shops, and single family dwellings.

Amman was originally built on seven mountains, called “Jabal”s, each of which more or less defines a neighborhood and gives it its name, like “Jabal Amman” and “Jabal Al-Hussein”.

Many “Jabal”s once had roundabouts called “circles”. Most of these circles are now replaced by traffic lights, bridges and tunnels, however, they are still known as 1st circle, 2nd circle... 8th circle and so on.
