Jordan seeks to attract more visitors

Jordan seeks to attract more visitors
2 Apr 2014

Tourist officials in Jordan are set to launch a concerted effort to bring more visitors to the country, which is best-known for being home to the amazing and historic site of Petra.

A focal point of this campaign is to use more social media tools as a means of promoting the unique appeal of this fascinating tourist destination.

In recent years, of course, tourism in this part of the world has been hurt by political uprisings and tensions, but it is hoped that a more effective form of communication with prospective travellers will mean that tourists will consider heading to Jordan.

“Jordan has so much to offer in terms of tourism, [visitors] love to be here and they enjoy the experience,” US ambassador Stuart Jones told albawaba.com.

He added: “We want to help them [tourists] find this experience and a great way to do it is through social media.”ADNFCR-408-ID-801709430-ADNFCR
