Wadi Rum, known also as the Valley of the Moon, is one of the world’s most famous movie backdrops. The Martian(2015), Rogue One: A Star Wars Story(2016), The Last Days on Mars(2013) and countless movies have featured Wadi Rum’s magnificent scenery.
The Bedouin are a grouping of nomadic Arab people who have historically inhabited the desert regions. Nowadays, Bedouins of Wadi Rum still preserve customs and traditions, keeping the Bedouin culture alive.
The Life In The Desert
The Bedouin way of life is closely connected to the desert and its creatures. They know everything about the desert and love their lives with great freedom in the desert. Maybe you had heard that Bedouins pride themselves on virtues such as bravery, generosity, and hospitality.
When it comes to the Bedouin cuisine, the wadi is well-known for a meal that is cooked underground called “Zarb”. Putting food on coal and cover it for two to three hours is a centuries-old method of cooking for bedouins. Tourists should not miss this in Wadi Rum, because its smell just makes you mouth-watering.
Traditional Bedouin Tent
A traditional Bedouin tent is distinctive by its black color with white stripes. According to the locals, they used goat hair and camel lint to provide a good shelter even during rainfall.
As one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, the Wadi Rum protected area has no shortage of landmarks to visit. We strongly suggest you spending at least one night in the Wadi Rum desert.
