Wadi Rum
Tourism in Wadi Rum revolves around UNESCO-protected desert scenery and spectacular limestone rock formations following a dry river bed, which in World War I served as the headquarters of a British-inspired Arab revolt against the Ottomans.
You'll get in some beach time at South Beach and City Beach. Nature & Wildlife Tours and Arts of Sham Countries Art Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Wadi Rum side-trips: Aqaba (Wadi Araba Desert & Neptune Submarine Boat).
