Plan Your Wadi Rum Vacation

Prepare to be awed. There's more to Jordan's most famous desert than vast expanses of sand, though the undulating dunes are certainly mesmerizing. T.E. Lawrence fell in love with Wadi Rum and had a house built hereā€”the wind-ravaged remains still stand; much of the movie of Lawrence's life, "Lawrence of Arabia," which was filmed at Wadi Rum. The sandstone cliffs that striate the desert are colored in various reds and oranges that seem to change hues with the sun. The rocks have been sculpted by millennia of wind and other natural elements, into massive bridges and towering canyons, as well as shapes that resemble anything from alligators to ostrich heads.
