The Anglo Jordanian Society is ecstatic to share the news that from the 23rd of November, Google maps users can now explore more than 30 of Jordan’s beautiful historical sites with narration from her majesty Queen Rania on Street View!

“Her Majesty Queen Rania has always played a large part in encouraging tourism to Jordan, she represents the hospitable Jordanian culture meticulously, and has taken it upon herself to make sure tourism in Jordan constantly moves forward. This is the perfect example of how her majesty the queen continues to support the tourism sector.”- JTB Managing Director Abed AlRazzakArabiat

“Jordan remains a haven of peace and moderation in the Middle East. So, please, come and visit us. Meet and talk with our warm and hospitable people. Taste our cuisine. Learn some Arabic. Relax in the therapeutic waters of the Dead Sea and the Ma'in Springs. Marvel at the rich colours of Wadi Rum, the spectacular desert backdrop to "The Martian." Walk in the footsteps of our forebears. There’s so much to see and experience. There’s something for everyone in Jordan. And I couldn’t be happier that now, thanks to Google Maps, we can share our rich cultural heritage with the world. Visit g.co/Jordanhighlights to start your tour. As we say to all our visitors: ahlan wa sahlan. Hello and welcome.” - Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan
