About the Tour
Join Muna Haddad on a tour of Um Qais to delve deep into the world of destination design and development. Muna introduces ways to design tourism experiences that allow villages to tell the story of a place and people, while equally contributing to poverty alleviation, environmental preservation, and cultural revival. This is a journey, out of the bustling city to a quiet village perched on the northern hills of Jordan, to explore Um Qais through the eyes of a local beekeeper, a passionate outdoorsman, an experienced basket weaver and a talented chef.
