Sweimeh is situated 25 miles (40 kilometers) southwest of Amman, the national capital.
Visiting just one town or city, regardless of its popularity, can only ever give you a narrow window into the wider personality of a region. So try to allow a few days to tour Jordan's other natural and man-made attractions. You'll find Al Jizah, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the west, and Salt 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south.
Once you've fully explored Sweimeh, why not check out the nearest center. Amman is approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) away and is home to attractions like Royal Culture Center, King Hussain Sports City and Plaza Mall. Amman has lots to offer visitors willing to stay for a day or two. Ummayed Palace, National Archaeological Museum and Abu Darweesh Mosque are other places worth visiting.
Should the weather turns nasty; fear not, Jordan is home to some terrific history museums, that'll keep you and your family happily occupied.
If you are not the type of traveler to take vacations purely to shuffle between the pool and the buffet, the Sweimeh area offers plenty of high-energy pursuits like horse riding and hiking.
When it's finally time to bid goodbye to Sweimeh, head to the nearest major airport situated in Amman, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the east.
