Jordan tourism board launches live chat feature in Mideast

Aug. 20, 2014 6:44 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 20, 2014 6:59 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Jordan's Tourism Board announced the launch of its Virtual Visitor Center and Online Chat feature this week.

The introduction of these features -- the first of their kind in the Middle East -- represents a large step in the Board's ongoing effort to streamline communication between JTB and potential travelers and allow the website's visitors maximum accessibility to the company's knowledge and resources.

Dr. Abed Al-Razzaq Arabiyat, managing director of the Jordan Tourism Board said: "These new developments allow guests to ask any question they might have about tourism in Jordan live and get an immediate answer by qualified staff managing the chat feature."

Arabiyat added: "The Virtual Center in design and set-up attracts visitors to the site because its lay out is very similar to that of a physical center. Features include chatting live with a staff member as well as an itinerary planner that assists in the trip planning process customized according to the personal preferences of the visitor.

The microsite also provides more traditional content like maps, photos, videos and experience specific brochures to aid visitors in finding their ideal vacation."

VisitJordan's new Virtual Visitor Center offers a multimedia platform from which users can explore all Jordan has to offer. Upon entering the Center, visitors are invited to learn more about travel in Jordan using an Interactive Trip Planner that highlights destinations related to history, leisure, adventure, and much more.

Users can also peruse the expansive Media Gallery to learn more about popular sites in Jordan. With this feature, visitors can browse an expansive online library of stunning images and watch captivating videos of Jordan’s varied travel destinations.

Along with the information shared on the Interactive Trip Planner and Media Gallery, potential travelers also have access to JTB’s revamped library of guides and brochures. A comprehensive Jordan Visitor’s Guide is supplemented with a wide variety of additional brochures on Leisure and Wellness, Fun and Adventure, Ecotourism and Nature, History and Culture, Biblical Jordan, and Conferences.

These recently updated and redesigned resources provide both general and site-specific information for those interested in exploring the Hashemite Kingdom.

JTB has also recently launched a new Online Chat feature on its VisitJordan website.

Online Chat is available in Arabic and English from Sunday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m in local Amman time.
