World Heritage Greetings: #1 Wadi Rum, Jordan

“Framed by a breathtaking backdrop of rugged cliffs, sand dunes and Bedouin camps, you will find a vibrant diversity of life in Wadi Rum. During spring the desert blooms in a variety of colors and shapes and surprises travelers even with waterfalls.

Those who have a keen eye can catch a glimpse of the petroglyphs (rock paintings), which are more than thousand years old. And after a day in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia you will be hosted with hospitality while enjoying delicious food (Zarb). Listening to the singing of the Bedouins and the sound of the Oud, you will have a night that shines from millions of stars.”
