Jordan is located in the Middle East region, sharing its borders with the likes of Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Covering a total area of 89,342 square kilometres, the country has been described as a strong emerging market, with liberal economic policies that have fuelled the continued growth of Jordan’s financial, manufacturing, telecommunications and transportation industries in recent years.
Famed for its warm hospitality, the country has also emerged as a fast-growing tourism destination, with famous attractions such as the ancient monuments of Petra, the breath-taking landscapes of Wadi Rum, the historical marvels of Amman Citadel, and the salty waters of the Dead Sea.
Reinforcing the appeal of such landmarks, holidays to Jordan have become more and more popular. On average, around 4 million people visit the country each year, arriving from across the Middle East and other parts of the world.
