If so, Audrey addresses that here in the section “Independent and DIY Travel Notes for Jordan” near the bottom:

Given that the visitor center is quite close to the main Desert Highway, I think that most people would understand where you wanted to go and help you get there. You could also probably hitch a ride with a tour bus going that way, too. Having a bit of Arabic certainly helps!

I know you guys had your own private transport, but did you hear of ways to get to the visitor’s center at Wadi Rum? The Lonely Planet gives some instructions for hitchhiking, but it looks a little confusing if you aren’t too familiar with the area. In an earlier post, Audrey mentioned that hitchhiking was generally safe, but did you hear anything about how easy it was? I would just be concerned that I’d take a minibus out of Aqaba, get dropped off and then be lost. I’m at a bit of an advantage, because I can speak some Arabic, but I imagine it might be difficult to communicate exactly where one is trying to go. Just wondering if you have any insight into this.
Thanks!

Wadi Rum was great. Actually all the valleys nearby were pretty spectacular in their own right.

@WTT: It’s the emptiness that makes them so stunning, for sure. And all the color changes they go through from sunrise to sunset. But what’s even more incredible to me: people live there. And they enjoy it.

Barren, yet still stunning :) Another nice panorama you got here. Makes me feel like I’m actually at Wadi Rum, Jordan :D
