If you've heard the expression "getting there is half the fun," Petra is the ultimate. Though, perhaps, the trip is not so much fun. However, it is really worth it, and that's an understatement. It is truly one of the most amazing spots from ancient...More

You have to go there. Hard to put into words. Wear good walking shoes and plan for at least 2 days, or likely more. Buy the Jordan pass, can’t beat the deal if coming to Petra!

Yes you can hire a horse drawn chariot to take u from the visitor centre to the treasury and back. It takes 2 people and the 'driver'. Not sure how much it should cost but you should haggle.
