Wadi Rum Vacation Packages
Amman, the national capital, is about 170 miles (274 kilometers) north of Wadi Rum.
Wadi Rum is not the only place in Jordan worth exploring; visitors should also set out to see the unique qualities of the nearby countryside, communities and cultural attractions. Aqaba and Petra are just two of the many other places worth seeing while you're in Jordan.
Visitors looking to discover quiet places of quiet contemplation, will enjoy visiting the region's shrines.
Don't forget to check out Jordan's beautiful waterways. Scuba diving and swimming are both most popular ways to exercise here.
One of the joys of leaving home is learning new flavors. Don't miss the opportunity to visit the region's cafés and restaurants. Chicken as well as lamb are ingredients commonly used in local meals here. There are many specialty meals locally. Sample maqluba (meat, rice and fried vegetables) or falafel sandwiches. And when it is time for dessert, you should try harissa (honey, semolina cake). Shaneeneh (aged goat milk yoghurt) is a popular non-alcoholic beverage in this area.
Even the best vacation can't last forever, so when it's time fly home, head to the nearest major airport in Aqaba, 25 miles (40 kilometers) away.
