More than a marvel, Petra is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. It is also the most important tourist attraction in Jordan. Groups of tourists from all over the world visit this site every year. Located 240 km south of Amman and 120 km from the Gulf of Aqaba and the Red Sea Bahar Al Mayet, Petra is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Once upon a time, it was the capital city of the Nabatean Arabs.

WHERE TO STAY IN PETRA 

Wadi Musa or Betra has hotels by the block so you have nothing to worry about. Booking online is even easier so you’ll avoid the inconvenience in case it’s the peak season (from March to May or September to November) when hotels are fully booked. 

HOW MUCH DID TICKETS COST ME AT PETRA?

For Jordanians 1JD – 1.4$

Children under 15 are free of charge.

WHAT IS THE OPENING AND CLOSING TIME TO VISIT PETRA?

6 am to 4 pm 

Go there the earliest that you can. You can really enjoy the experience more. As everyone would be asked to leave the site when it gets dark.

WHAT TO WEAR?

Hiking shoes are the best kind. However, you can use running shoes if you’re more comfortable with them. Be prepared to walk around the site as there aren’t any motorized vehicles allowed inside.

Check out some travel tips on this site. Luckily, it lists some very good tips on safety and rules to remember when you visit Petra.

Dead sea Earth’s lowest elevation on land.

 

The Ancient City of Jerash 

Jordan’s The Citadel is also another breathtaking place to visit. Can you see the middle picture above? That’s the remains of the Temple of Hercules. They are on a very high hill and is very visible around the town. You can see how small the people are compared to the column right? Imagine how the rest of the temple might have looked like when it was still in all its glory thousands of years ago. It must have been breathtaking!
