The main reason that Jordan has started to develop its tourism over the last 70 years is to make way for the living members of the Woman to take refuge there. There was hardly a building near Petra 70 years ago: now there is a large town (Wadi Musa) with many hotels.
Jordan has only become a tourist playground to prepare for the Woman. The fact that eco-tourism is big means that the place is being preserved in order to nourish the Woman. In other words the locals are starting to get prepared for the Wise Virgins to return.
Rev 12:14 And the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, to fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
Adventure tourism is expanding at a fast rate in Jordan, and those in the travel industry believe that it promises to remain one of the most dynamic and innovative travel industry sectors for years to come. Several Jordanian companies have started to specialize in eco and action tourism, providing safe and comfortable facilities that make action tourism such an exciting proposition today. Tourists are encouraged to "go deeper" and discover a bounty of Jordan's natural wonders, from camping in Wadi Rum to being treated like modern-day royalty at the Dead Sea.

Bedouin Tour Guides
The Bedouins will be the guides that help show the Woman how to live in the wilderness. The Bedouins are the ADUMites, MUABites and children of OMUN (aka Ammon) that will be be ruled over by APaRIM (Ephraim) and IEUDE (Judah).
Isa 11:14 But they [IEUDE and APaRIM] shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines toward the west [The Negev?]; together they PLUNDER the people of the EAST, their hand stretching forth on ADUM and MUAḆ, and the children of OMUN shall be SUBJECT to them.
Married to a Bedouin [Book] A Western Woman Being Helped by an Edomite
by Marguerite van Geldermalsen
This book is famous in Jordan and is a first-hand description of life in Petra by a New Zealander woman married to a Bedouin. She lived in a one-room cave with no running water, and baked bread daily.
Interestingly, since around the time Marguerite was married there has been a trend of *Western Women* marrying Bedouin men. This trend continues to this day. This phenomenon reflects a Bible prophecy that will soon come to pass.
Daniel 11:41 and Isaiah 11:14 shows us that the Edomites, Moabites and children of Ammon will be our tour guides and teach us how to live in the land of Jordan, just like this Bedouin who took Marguerite in.
“‘Where you staying?’ the Bedouin asked. ‘Why you not stay with me tonight—in my cave.’ He seemed enthusiastic. And we were looking for adventure." Thus begins the story of how Marguerite van Geldermalsen—a New Zealand-born nurse—became the wife of Mohammad Abdallah Othman [RIP], a Bedouin souvenir-seller of the Manaja tribe, and lived with him and their children in a community of 100 families in the ancient caves of Petra in Jordan. Marguerite and a friend were traveling through the Middle East in 1978 when she met the charismatic Mohammad and decided that he was the man for her. Their home was a lofty 2,000 year-old cave carved into the red rock of a hillside. She became the resident nurse and learned to live like the Bedouin—cooking over fires, hauling water on donkeys, and drinking sweet black tea—and over the years she became as much of a curiosity as the cave-dwellers to tourists. This is her extraordinary story.
