A royal visit to Jordan is turning the spotlight on one of the Arab kingdom's up-and-coming tourism destinations.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall are being officially greeted by the King and Queen of Jordan and a guard of honour at a royal palace in the capital Amman.
The royal pair were set to hold a private meeting with King Abdullah II and Queen Rania Al-Abdullah on the opening full day of their Middle East trip.
Charles was then expected to visit the King Hussein Mosque and an award-winning digital production firm.
Meanwhile, the Duchess was set to see a children's museum and a secondary school for girls.
Jordan has a wide range of delights to offer tourists of all ages, including world-class historical and cultural sites such as Petra, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and Jerash, and four and five-star hotels.
Holidaymakers can also savour a thriving nightlife with nightclubs in the main centres, such as Amman, Irbid and Aqaba, and beach clubs at the Dead Sea and Aqaba. The annual Distant Heat festival in Wadi Rum, Aqaba, is ranked as one of the world's top 10 raves.
