    UAE is good in terms of all required facilities and support services. My experience ‘Marrakesh in Morrocco’ is best.

    This is Linda from the Royal Film Commission- Jordan, we have some spectacular desert locations in Jordan all within relatively close traveling distance. We have the breathtaking desert of Wadi Rum (where Lawrence of Arabia was shot), we also have black desert, white desert and yellow desert. I have attached a few images for your reference.

    My email is if you have a location breakdown or need any more information please don’t hesitate to contact me anytime and we would be more than happy to assist. We are very excited that Jordan could potentially be your filming destination of choice.
