MORE INFO ABOUT JORDAN
You don’t need to spend much time exploring the otherworldly landscapes of Jordan to see why it has become a favoured haunt for huge Hollywood productions. Its Wadi Rum desert has stood in as the backdrop for sci-fi blockbusters from The Martian, to Dune, and various Star Wars productions.
An impressive CV, no? There is a reason that this awe-inspiring environment has become Earth’s go-to representation of a far away desert planet, fictional or non-fictional. There is something all-encompassing about it, perhaps it’s the vastness, or maybe it’s simply the incomparable beauty that really does transport you to another world. The same can be said for much of Jordan, from the ancient city of Petra to the Dead Sea, there is nowhere else on Earth quite like it, which is probably why it’s so easy to believe that this place is from a galaxy far, far away.
