Petra is Jordan's most famous tourist attraction. A city hewn by the Nabateans into the rose-coloured rock hidden behind the surrounding mountains, the site became famous after reports by the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt in 1812.

Cannot say anything about this hotel, because even having a booking confirmed when I arrived the property was closed for bussines, so I had to look for another place to stay. ... more
The ancient city of Petra is, in my opinion, overrated. It's cool for the amount of buildings carved into caves and the sheer size of some of the buildings, but there is a lot of walking and if not for the historical aspect (which I don't know, but I hear there is one), it probably wouldn't be worth the admission ...
