Travel and Tourism - Jordan - August 2010

The growth of tourism in Jordan has been remarkable. Visitor receipts have doubled over the last five years, and visitor arrivals has increased by 22% over the same period. These growth rates have not been achieved by chance. The investment in the sector since the turn of the century has been considerable, with particular areas of the country receiving substantial foreign and local investment. Aqaba has been earmarked for special attention, and is expected to eclipse Eilat over the next five to ten years as the largest and most diverse resort on the Red Sea.
