According to a statement released by the association on Friday, the talks focused on tourist tracks in Jordanian cities and governorates.

Researcher and professor of archeology at the Hashemite University, Mohammad Wahib, said that the Greater Amman Municipality is working to develop around 14 paths, including international, regional, and local tracks.

The international paths that cross through Amman include the International Incense Road and the Elaf Qurashi Road, which start in the Arabian Peninsula.

Most of the regional paths include those that follow the Hijaz, while local paths in Amman include the path of the youth at Raqeim Cave, the path of Cardo and Decmanos Street, the path of the baptismal site, the Amman Heritage Walk, the path of the astronomical sundials, the path of the Prophet Mohammad, and the path connecting Jabal Al-Qalaa and the center of the country, which is currently being developed.

The attendees recommended that tour guides organize a visit to the new routes to put them on the map, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.
