The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is a beautiful destination famous for stunning desert landscapes and ancient cities. Jordan offers a little bit for everyone, from the amazing food to friendly people, it is a traveller’s idea of a perfect holiday. Apart from the fact that it is full of interesting places to see and adventures to explore, it is also one of the safest destinations for tourists.
People have a misconception that Middle East isn’t a very safe region which discourages some travellers but that isn’t even remotely true for Jordan. To promote the destination among international travellers, Jordan Tourism Board has recently invited avid travellers from other countries to explore the country and see what it has to offer. As they go along, they are sharing their experiences over social media. Here we have shared our favourite Tweets from their journey.

Blogger engagement activities by DMOs are a great way to promote destinations as long as they meet a purpose and create awareness in a defined manner. Among Indian destinations, Chhattisgarh tourism board had recently invited bloggers to the state and drive conversations on social media. Among other states, Goa Tourism & Kerala Tourism have been actively organising instawalks and blogger meet-ups. For more updates on Jordan Tourism Board’s activity, follow the hashtag #GoJordan.
