By Muath Freij

AMMAN – Tourists from the Gulf region have been heading to the Kingdom this month, attracted by its security, stability, “beautiful weather” and hospitality, some vacationing Arabs said on Wednesday.

According to Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Haifa Abu Ghazaleh, 39,351 arrivals were registered from Gulf states in the first eight days of this month.

Hussein Ali from Kuwait described the tourism experience in the Kingdom as “unique”.

“Jordan is full of spectacular sites such as Petra and Wadi Rum that attract tourists from all over the world,” the university student said.

Saudi tourist Saleh Qarni, who finds Amman “interesting”, said he is enjoying the capital’s lifestyle.

“At night, I go shopping at malls, and I sometimes stop for a cup of coffee at one of the cafés here, which provide their visitors with good service. Other than that, cinemas are one of my favourite destinations,” he told The Jordan Times, while buying a movie ticket.

For Abdo Kaabi, also from Saudi Arabia, the country’s weather is “perfect” for going outdoors and strolling on the capital’s streets.
