Wadi Rum is located in the Middle-Eastern country of Jordan and has long captivated visitors. Wadi Rum means “Valley of the Moon” and you will understand the name upon arriving to this fascinating area. The landscape of the desert reminds one of the terrain of other planets! That is why this location has been used in many movies including Star Wars, Lawrence of Arabia and The Martian to act as the setting of Mars, alien planets and more.
