What draws people to Wadi Rum is the uniqueness of the landscape and the simple life of the Bedouin people who live there. So barren and lunar is the sandstone and granite environment that many movies set off-world have been filmed here, and it’s not hard to see why. If you’re moving between Wadi Musa and Aqaba, you shouldn’t even question whether or not to break up your journey here. It’s definitely worth a visit. – Daniel

To get the most of the area, you’ve really got to spend a night or two camping at one of the Bedouin camps. Bedouin Lifestyle Camp would be a good choice, and they can organise tours for you in the region.
It can be hard to take good photos in the afternoon when the sand is whipped up by the winds. The mornings are usually a good deal clearer, so perhaps try then.
Make sure to experience a Zarb, which is a Bedouin BBQ cooked in a covered whole in the ground.
