Jordan welcomes increasing number of British visitors

Jordan saw further growth in UK visitor numbers in the first quarter of 2017, January – March, increasing by 15.8 per cent, compared to the same period in 2016.

The swell in travellers follows the announcement that UK tourists to the Hashemite Kingdom also grew by seven per cent in 2016.

The first quarter of 2017 also saw Jordan welcome its first signature 18-hole grass golf course in Aqaba, on the country’s Red Sea coastline.
