Hello every body
My name is Hesham Bani Hani
I am a Jordanian & I live in Amman
This a few word about my country


From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tourism_in_Jordan

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan borders present day countries Saudi Arabia, Syria, Israel, West Bank, Iraq, and Egypt via the Red Sea. Jordan is rich with a wide range of tourist attractions. Tourism is Jordan's most promising sector of the economy. The main problem with tourism in Jordan is the misconception that Jordan is unsafe as well as all of the region. Jordan offers world-class facilities and continues to develop its tourism infrastructure. Tourism accounts for a large part of Jordan's economy. Jordanian hospitality is well noted by its rash of western tourists.
In addition to its historical sites, Jordan offers the following tourist attractions:
1. Health tourism is becoming very popular in Jordan. Jordan offers world-class hospitals to Jordanians and foreigners alike. Many of the recipients of Jordanian hospitals are Palestinian and Iraqi refugees. Syrians, Yemenis, and South East Asians working in Jordan are common visitors.
2. Education tourism is also very popular in Jordan. Jordan's excellent education program is a favorite for westerners studying Arabic in the Middle East. Also, those who can afford it study in Jordan's European and American universities
3. Adventurers staying in Jordan can also rock-climb in Jordan's Wadi Rum and go for hikes in Jordan's northern mountainous region. Scuba divers can visit Aqaba's magnificent coral reefs.
4. Pop-culture tourism is also evident in Jordan because many western films have been filmed in Jordan
5. Shopping tourism is popular in Amman, Irbid, and Aqaba.
6. Pilgrimages are growing in Jordan. Mount Nebo and the Mosaic Map in Madaba are popular to Christian tourists. The Jordan River and the Dead Sea are also very popular. The numerous medieval mosques and churches are popular destinations for pilgrims.
The most frequented location in Jordan is the ancient Nabataeans city of Petra. Petra, a complete city carved in a mountain, is recognized as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
Leisure tourism in the Dead Sea area offer world-class spas to visitors. Theoretic tourism is an increasingly important sector of the Jordanian tourism industry.
