USAID BEST is supporting the development of tourism experiences around Jordan to help increase and diversify options. In Madaba, Hikayet Sitti is offering visitors an authentic culinary experience coupled with local community engagement through activities such as storytelling and walking tours.  Eco View Resort is offering a get-away to the serene forests of Jerash for teambuilding and outdoor activities. Al Ghirbal Restaurant in As-Salt is establishing a tourism restaurant that reflects the culture and cuisine of As-Salt.  Also, this month Jordan hosted the 'Resilience through Tourism Summit' implemented by Europe's largest travel trade media company and showcased the country as a case study. The summit drew international and regional delegates to discuss the topic.
