Recommended time to visit: Spring (March - May) and Autumn (September - November) are the best times to visit, away from the heat of summer.
Less popular time to visit: The summer months of June - August can be scorching, with temperatures often hitting 40 degrees Centigrade. But there are fewer crowds if you can tolerate the heat.
Best time for stargazing: The Wadi Rum desert is one of the best places in the world for stargazing, with the Perseids Meteor Shower visible every year between July and August.
