Wadi Rum in Jordan is an unearthly place. There are several movies shot here, including those about the red planet. Driving there I was afraid that I was so wound up on the wonderful views that I could be disappointed in my ideas about the famous desert. And on the spot I was speechless with delight. Wadi Rum is much more beautiful than I had imagined, I can’t wait to see it again.
I don’t think I know any person who would not associate a narrow road among the orange-yellow walls of the As-Sik Gorge leading to Petra’s most famous building, called the Pharaoh’s Treasury – Al-Chazna. Unfortunately, the admission price is adequate to the size and popularity of attractions, but I think it is worth spending this amount to see Petra, one of the seven new wonders of the world.
