Amman - Jordan's tourism
Jordan's tourism revenues rose by 6.1 percent in the first three months of this year, reaching 1.7 billion dollars, or 1.2 billion dinars, compared to 1.6 billion dollars for the same period last year, according to preliminary data released by the Central Bank of Jordan.
According to the bank, this figure came mainly as a result of the increase in the number of tourists by 2.5 percent compared to the same period last year to reach 1633.1 thousand tourists.
Tourism is one of the main resources in Jordan. The Kingdom lacks resources such as oil and gas, and relies on weak resources, aid and support from international financial institutions, and the most prominent tourist attractions are Petra and the shores of the coastal city of Aqaba.
