Eco-tourism is hot right now. Tourists increasingly want their travels to make a positive impact on the regions and communities they visit. This has given birth to a whole new sector in the global tourism industry.
New, at least, in most places. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has long structured its tourism industry in a way that connects visitors with its cultural and natural wonders. The country’s Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature has worked toward that end since 1966, and in that time it’s developed some pretty cool infrastructure.
So if it’s eco-tourism you want, consider one of these sites in the middle eastern kingdom. And check out Petra while you’re there.
