Wadi Rum

Tourism in Wadi Rum revolves around UNESCO-protected desert scenery and spectacular limestone rock formations following a dry river bed, which in World War I served as the headquarters of a British-inspired Arab revolt against the Ottomans. The area can be best experienced by taking a camel or horseback ride and staying in a Bedouin tent and camping under the stars, before exploring ancient ruins and enjoying home-cooked meal in the desert. Rock climbers and other lovers of eco-tourism will be pleased with the opportunity to climb massive rock formations, while paragliding remains equally popular in the area. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Jordan trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Where to stay in Wadi Rum

Oriented towards sightseeing in the desert, Wadi Rum has no hotels, instead offering a range of campsites with Bedouin-style tents. These options range from sleeping under a thin blanket by a cave, to spending the night in a comfortable cabin. You can also put up your own tent in designated areas, although you'll miss out on the traditional meals and tea provided by many campsites. These accommodations follow a line from northeast to southwest along the dry river bed, while a number of agents organize wilder trips where you can go bivouac camping or sleep under the stars. Visitors who prefer more luxurious conditions can always opt to stay in the more touristy Aqaba area.
