MEDICAL TOURISM IN JORDAN
According to the UNWTO world tourism barometer, Middle Eastern countries lost 5 million tourists in 2011. The main reason for this loss involved political uprising in North African countries.
In light of the Arab spring, tourists began to think twice about visiting Arab countries despite the fact that the Middle East is not responsible for the problems in North Africa. UAE, Saudi Arabia and Oman recorded successful periods in the history of their tourism, yet many of their Middle Eastern counterparts suffered as a result of problems elsewhere.
