"Wadi Rum.........As you travel..." Wadi Rum Tip by scotty1

Wadi Rum, Jordan: 55 reviews and 97 photos


Wadi Rum.........As you travel up the coast towards Petra you will cross Wadi Rum. Majestic Wadi Rum is a vast and silent landscape of ancient riverbeds .Pastel-coloured stretches of sandy desert, suddenly shattered by towering sandstone mountains with shimmering cliffs. Scene of the exploits of Lawrence of Arabia during World War One, and the setting for the film that carried his name.
As you travel through this area you will see Beduin people camping and their animals grazing. I watched little children play among a heard of goats . Large heavy looking brown tents and people walking about doing their chores in the middle of the desert.

Directions: It's easy to reach Wadi Rum by bus either from Petra or Aqaba.Leaving Wadi Rum, there are 2 buses a day to Aqaba leaving at 7 am and 1 pm (1,5 JD).
othercontact: You have to pay a 1 JD entrance
