The natives also run much of the local eco-tourism economy--research ahead to book a hiking, camelback, or jeep tour with them.

Fortunately I saw the last sunset in Wadi rum in 2018, I almost cried there because it was really amazing view and glad to share the feelings with my new travel buddies I just met from hostel. 2 years have passed,I still keep all the photos in my phone and as my desktop wallpaper.
