Jordan tourism, which has been growing steadily, is seeing a major influx of foreign tourists, including many from Turkey.
Jordan has one of the most expensive travel markets in the Middle East, where hotels are expensive and restaurants often overpriced.
Jordan, like most of the region, relies on tourism for its economic success.
Tourism is the primary source of income for many families.
The Ministry of Tourism said in a statement that tourism is a key pillar of the Jordanian economy, with the number of tourists coming from around the world contributing over 90 percent of the countrys GDP.
Jordan’s Tourism Ministry, which oversees the tourism industry, said in February that more than 1.6 million foreign tourists visited Jordan in 2016.
Tourism to Jordan accounts for about 8 percent of Jordan’s gross domestic product.
Jordanian tourism is particularly important to the United Arab Emirates, which is the largest exporter of tourism to the Middle Eastern country.
In the UAE, the tourism sector contributes $4.5 billion annually to the economy.
