Jordan - Aqaba, Wadi Rum & the Desert Highway (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the Aqaba, Wadi Rum & the Desert Highway chapter from Lonely Planet’s Jordan guidebook.

Southern Jordan is the home of the Bedouin; they inhabit the unforgiving Southern Desert, a quintessential landscape of sand dunes, oases and weathered escarpments, beautiful at sunset and awe-inspiringly extreme in midsummer. A trip to Wadi Rum makes all but the most unromantic at heart long to leave the modern world behind and attempt the life of a nomad.

  • maps
  • book a private tent and personally delivered dinner on your own sand dune in Diseh
  • transport
  • relax at one of Jordan’s blissful southerly coastal resorts
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Aqaba & around, South Coast, Wadi Rum & around, Diseh, The Desert Highway, Humaiyma, Ma’an and Qatrana.
