Transport to Wadi Rum.

Is it possible to travel to Wadi rum from Aqaba by public transport? If not does anyone know how much a taxi might cost one way?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,

The standard fare from the centre of the town is 25JD or 30/35JD from the southern resort hotels.

There are buses at 1pm and at 3pm except on Fridays when there is no bus. These are the only buses that you can really count on: when there is school for the girls, there is officially a bus at 6.15am or so to take the teachers to Wadi Rum, but of course it doesn't run on school holidays of any kind and it is better not to count on it.

Thanks a lot Amariya. 1PM will be really late for us so we'll have to catch a taxi. 25JD sounds good. Hopefully taxi agrees to this rate from the city centre.

Do you know where the school bus leaves from & are we able to book that in advance or is it just a case of turning up?

It's an ordinary bus, it comes from Wadi Rum to collect them at the bus station. As soon as they are aboard, it leaves.

Can anyone suggest where would the taxi from Aqaba city centre drop us in Wadi Rum?

We are keen on spending an entire day there, but have no clue where to start.

Very keen on the jeep safari and bedouin camp.

Thanks
