Middle East is becoming the tourism hot spot

Published on : Friday, July 14, 2017

12The Middle East, a transcontinental region centred on Western Asia and Egypt in North Africa is now booming in tourism despite having travel ban and laptop ban.


The State Department of USA had issued some warnings regarding travelling to Middle Eastern countries, especially Turkey, Jordan, Israel and Egypt, which are widely known as the hotspot in tourism developments.



Americans are choosing to travel to the Middle East, for its varied culture, history and the rich treasures of history. Intrepid Travel has seen the 70 percent growth of US booking to the Middle East countries. Now the tour operator is offering 45 itineraries across the Middle East—including Oman and the Palestinian territories. It also happened for the political stability there.



Intrepid Travel CEO James Thornton has a belief that with travelling there one can build the communication with each other. Travel Ban will not deter them and it will not have any serious effect on the tourism sector of the Middle East.



According to some popular tour operator and the travel associations, Middle East has more to see than any other places in the world. Some of the popular tourist destinations in the Middle East are Tel Aviv, once the war zone, now fully converted into a beach city; for the business tourism Dubai and Doha become the centre of attraction; Jordan can remind the historical beauty and the mystery of the Christianity; Beirut, the Capital City of Lebanon, offering the variety of ancient monuments and architecture; Egypt boosted with the myriad architectural heritages along with the pyramids and many others.



The Middle Eastern countries are very important places to visit for many reasons. These are the places the history of man, religion, and global issues merge.  Compared to 2016, Jordan is also experiencing a 10 percent increase in the tourism sector, because most of the visitors accrued most in Jordan are from America. Jordan Trail has revived the tourism culture in Jordan. Jordan Trail showcases the cultural side of the country and the historical part as well. It also helps in finding the deeper experience through the city tours and the desert safari. A path spanning over 400 miles from the Umm Qais in the north to Aqaba and the Red Sea in the south, the Jordan Trail is a chance for travellers for the responsible tourism and exploration through culture.



According to most of the tour operators in Jordan, Americans are finding Jordon in 2017 as a most important place to visit, not for its culture and history, but to experience the friendliness of the locals, the assortment of the terrain, or the implausible food.
