Move over Google Earth, Jordan is installing webcams in an attempt to attract tourists by showing off its attractions and the safe nature of the region.
Joining forces with EarthCam, Jordan Tourism Board has installed a number of live streaming webcams which feature sites such as Aqaba and the Dead Sea, the ancient site of Petra and The Citadel in Jordan’s capital city, Amman, as well as the Amman city skyline.
Dubbed the ‘Jordan Cam’, according to the Jordan Tourism Board website, the incredible tool will give couch travellers and those in the process of planning a trip to the Middle East, some insight into lives of everyday Jordanians.
“This is very exciting for the Jordan Tourism Board, as Jordan is the first country in the Middle East to install webcams for tourism purposes”, said Dr. Abed al Razzaq Arabiyyat, Managing Director of Jordan Tourism Board.
“This will not only show that Jordan is unaffected by the political turbulence that has been going on around the region, but will also showcase the beauty of the sites day and night.”
