Jordan is one of the top ten largest contributors to UN Peacekeeping troops. In the midst of civil wars happening in other countries surrounding them, they have been greatly positive and hospitable offering refuge to thousands of refugees fleeing the Islamic State.
Despite of being considered to be the safest country in Middle East, Jordan's tourism has reduced to almost 90% since the turmoil started in its neighbor countries. When news about the Lebanon and Paris attacks emerged just this November 2015, a lot of foreigners, tourists and travelers mainly Europeans have cancelled their trips which caused the country's tourism to fall down even more.
How does the local people handled this crisis?
After our 5 days visit to Jordan, I can confidently say that this country is indeed strong especially the local people.
It isn’t fair for them, but they still continue to strive and work hard to gain tourists’ trust regardless of the negative impressions from around the world. I really admire how Jordanians show love for their country and manage to live their humble lives in peace.
After I met Jordan.
I indeed feel blessed having the opportunity to experience Jordan. It is far more than just a country, it has lots to offer, and when I say lots, I mean anything you can ever imagine! No words can express how I admire everything in it most especially those people I've met.
This wonderful country doesn't deserve to be forgotten and taken for granted, it doesn't deserve to be pulled down by the exaggeration of media.
Hence, I recommend and urge everyone to visit Jordan whenever you get a chance, never hesitate to give it a try, it will be beyond worthy. Trust me!
