Jordan is an Arab country in the West of Asia on the East bank of the river Jordan.
Jordan’s tourist sector is a large part of the economy and the job sector. The tourist numbers however go up and down with the politic unrest that the country has. The Arab Spring scared the tourists off between 2010 and 2017 with fears for their safety giving the country a 70% decrease in tourists. In 2017 the industry picked up again and the numbers have been increasing every year since.
