Australian visitors to Jordan increase

The latest statistics released by the Jordan Tourism Board shows there has been an increase in visitors during the month of August which is up by 0.4 % to 1,360 visitors in the month and a total of 14,031 for January to August.

Nicole Lenoir-Jourdan of the Jordan Tourist Board in Australia said, "This is a pleasing result. I was in Jordan during the month of August with JTB representatives from all around the world and felt completely safe in this magical haven which boasts Petra, the Dead Sea, the Red Sea and so many incredible religious sites."

"There are over 100,000 archaeological and heritage sites, one of the largest number in the world, including 11,000 documented under the national data base, on top of which is the red rose city of Petra," she said.

Speaking about the increase, Lenoir-Jourdan said, "Australians are incredibly geographically savvy and these results show that they are still embracing travel to Jordan, the Switzerland of the Middle East."

The Jordan Tourism Board are continuing to invest money into the Australian market in 2014 and are also looking to invite Australian trade to a Jordan Travel Market to be held either in 2014 or 2015.
