In Amman, hotel occupancy rates reached 70 percent, at the Dead Sea 82 percent, and in Petra 32 percent, Hindi added.

According to Hindi, hotel occupancy rates in Aqaba vary according to the hotels classification; four-star and lower hotels had 50 percent occupancy rates over the weekend.

"This can be attributed to several factors, including the end of Tawjihi (general secondary education certificate examination), which enabled people to be able to enjoy domestic tourism, and the conferences and festivals that took place," Hindi said.
