Hollywood Comes to Jordan!

World-famous singer Andrea Bocelli to perform in Jordan

AMMAN — The tourism scene in Jordan has recently shown signs of recovery with growing numbers of tourists, Tourism Minister Lina Annab said on Wednesday, attributing the increase to several factors including the active role played by the private sector.

Annab made her remarks during a press conference held in Amman to announce the upcoming concert of the world-famous Italian artist Andrea Bocelli. 


Jordan is Keeping it Green


Aqaba Marine Park to be listed as first marine nature reserve

AMMAN — The Aqaba Marine Park (AMP) is scheduled to join Jordan's network of nature reserves this year, becoming the country's first marine nature reserve, according to a consultant on coastal management and protection.

The park, located 15 kilometres from downtown Aqaba, was declared a nature reserve by the government in 1997 with the aim of protecting the marine environment from rising pollution resulting from the rapid growth of Aqaba’s population and the expansion of its industrial activities.



With Sustainable Approach, Jordan's Wind-Power Industry Soars

Millions of birds soar through Jordan every year as they travel across Europe, Africa, and Asia on the world’s second-largest bird migration flyway. So in 2013, when IFC financed Tafila Wind—the first large-scale wind energy project in the Middle East—protecting these birds and the wildlife that resides in a nearby nature reserve was one of IFC’s top concerns.

Our Environmental and Social Performance Standards was the place to turn as we began to outline a plan that ensured the safety of Jordan’s wildlife.


We have a winner!!

Other Stories From Jordan

Our Jordan trip was one of our memorable trips in recent years. Tala from Experience Jordan helped us to plan and book our trip and she was amazing helping me all along. Traveling with a toddler is not at all easy. She booked the best accommodation for us including our stay in Wadi Rum. I really appreciate the way Experience Jordan did a last minute reshuffle of our tour due to our flight getting cancelled in last minute. I would strongly recommend availing services from Experience Jordan any given day. Lastly I would like to thank Ahmed our driver for the whole trip. His guidance, warmth and hospitality really made us comfortable throughout the trip. Thanks again for the hospitality really miss it!!"
