Things to do in Aqaba

Colour-shifting landforms, giant sandstone mountains, towering plateaus, steep canyons, mushroom rocks and perpetually moving sand dunes are just some of the elements of Wadi Rum’s splendour. A desert with incredibly beautiful sandstone formations, famous from movies such as “Lawrence of Arabia” and “Indiana Jones”. A visit to Wadi Rum when on holiday in Aqaba is a “must”, and spending the night in one of the camps there is definitely an unforgettable experience.
