Visiting the area where Lawrence of Arabia actually fought was quite interesting. Rock formations are beautiful, there are a few ancient pictures still remaining on one rock and there is a friendly spot for tea and a bit of shopping if you wish.

Tired after the desert sun? Take a break here, drink a tea, enjoy a little chat with bedouins and refresh yourself.

History is a little exaggerated here, but it is a good story for tourists! View is beautiful and it is near the village.

When doing a tour through Wadi Rum it's nice to stop here, hike up the hill to the spring and enjoy the view and the shade of the fig (?) tree.
