Excellent site and a must see in Jordan. If you enjoy hiking and seeing all the different parts take at least 2 days or more at the site. We wary of the sellers and animal handlers and always negotiate prices.

Absolutely amazing place. A must go to place to visit. I recommend renting a mule or donkey as there will be a lot of walking and stairs to climb.

This is one of the modern wonders of the world. There's not much to say about it that hasn't been said but it's an awe-inspiring inspiring sight. The site is far larger than you might imagine so my best advice to is to ensure you have a minimum of two days here. You absolutely cannot do it justice and see all the highlights in one. I've met people on hurried tours that have as little as 3 hours, which is crazy. You'll see the Treasury (the famous facade from Indiana Jones) but nothing much else. There are two significant climbs, one to the place of high sacrifice, closers to the Treasury, and one to the Monastery, right towards the far end of the main site. The former is not visually impressive for the actual construction, such as exists, however the views from the top are good. The Monastery by comparison is another architectural wonder and the mountain and desert views are staggering, so I'd prioritise that. If possible, visit both but stagger them over two days and try to do each in the morning as early as possible before the sun gets too hot. It's much easier that way. In addition to this there is the king's tomb, the Roman church, a temple and countless other things you should make and effort to see. You will get constantly hassled to take donkey and camel rides by the Bedouins who live on the site, so it will require patience, though it will be rewarded.

Exceptionally well preserved city of an ancient civilization. Contrary to popular belief, Petra is more than just that one amazing rock carving you've probably seen on every tourist blog, it's actually a huge park/reserve with TONS of things to see. Allow yourself a full day or two to wander around, climb some trails, drink some local tea, and immerse yourself in what was once a flourishing center of trade two thousand years ago.

Petra is one of the best sites to be visited across the world. It needs almost a day to fully move around. Keep water and food stuff with you. One can also ride house. Amazed to see local children conversing in fluent English with tourists..
