Wadi Rum in Jordan needs to be on your travel list for 2021, especially if you’re a nature enthusiast who loves geology and astronomy. Also known as “Valley of the Moon,” Wadi Rum is a desert landscape with sand dunes, natural arches, and uniquely-shaped rock formations that make it look like a different planet. Many outer space-themed movies such as Mission to Mars (2000) and The Martian (2015) have been filmed here due to its arid and reddish, Mars-like landscape—we adore @maryjanebyarm‘s out-of-this-world outfit as it makes us want to visit this space-like destination as soon as we can. When there, we recommend staying at Memories Aicha Luxury Camp (@aichaluxury), which consists of 40 spacious air-conditioned canvas tents and geodesic domes that offer luxury in an uninterrupted natural setting. Glamping at its finest, if you will. With no light pollution, the stargazing from base camp is mesmerizing. Inside, guests can expect plush, hand-made furnishings that are a nod to the old Middle East, patterned walls, colorful rugs, ornate bed frames, brass lighting, and Dead Sea mud & mineral products. Travelers looking to take a dip in the Red Sea can do so at Aqaba South Beach, less than an hour away.
