Petra, Jordan

Jordan is one of the beautiful countries in the Middle East, Full of wonderful places and tasty food. It’s hard to describe Jordan in one post because there are many things you need to know and visit so I decide to tell you about my trip to Petra.

As all of us know Petra is one of the world wonders, is an Arabian historical and archaeological city in the Jordanian governorate of Ma'an; that is famous for its rock-cut architecture and water conduit system.

I won’t forget the day when I visited Petra with my family and friends, it was awesome. I was living in Amman which is four hours from Petra by car. To go to Petra, you can go with Tour Company or even you can drive yourself to that area, but in Jordan there’s nothing called GPS!! so you will need either to have the area map or its better to go with tourism company . In your way you will see a great places and nice views.

When you reach Al-Petra, you need to walk 30 minutes until you reach the rock-cut fossil or you might ride a camel or horse to reach there. You will amaze by the wonderful view and how it’s still until our days sculpted on the rock with the pick-orange color fossil, in the same area you can find old Roman amphitheater.

When you visit Petra with Tour Company, usually they take you to the heart of desert in a place call Wadi Rum, which is near Petra. You will enjoy the nice view of sundown. Next, they usually arrange a traditional Jordanian dinner for all the tourism, with sound of Jordanian music.

Its was one of best trips for me that I will never forget.There are more historical and nice places in Jordan. Trust me, you will not regret it.
