Petra By Night, Petra - Wadi Musa

2.0
#5 of 10 in Sightseeing in Petra - Wadi Musa
Historic Site Tourist Spot
A unique way to see the historic, rock-cut buildings and tombs, Petra By Night brings visitors up close to this 4th century BCE trading city. Plan ahead to attend a tour of the ruins, which begins with a walk through the Siq, a crevice between tall walls of rock that creates a natural tunnel for human passage. Lit by over 1,500 candles, the pathway and illuminated buildings at its end glow orange. Performers play Bedouin music and visitors each receive a cup of tea during the concert. Dress warmly and wear comfortable shoes to prepare for the short desert hike. Tours occur only at specific times and are limited, so plan ahead. Arrange to visit Petra By Night and other attractions in Petra - Wadi Musa using our Petra - Wadi Musa holiday planner.

  • The person who was addressing the audience was close to pathetic. Also the instrument players sounded more like not needed. There should be far better ways to showcase this wonder of the world  more »
  • Fairy-like atmosphere, where the Siq and the surroundings of the Treasury are illuminated by candles. A flashlight will not hurt because the surface is bumpy and sometimes you can see bad where you walk. You get a cup of (sweet) tea, there is music created and when told, then you walk back again. Very different atmosphere than when you're there during the day. We thought it was definitely worth it!

  • I went to 5/2017. Mon, Wed & Thu 20:30-22:30, El-Hasna (Treasure Museum) light is. I arrived the evening in Petra, we went to that night. From the entrance of the ruins go walk El hazine on foot lantern light. El hazine, playing folk music and mint tea will be served. With only a lantern light too dark, not take good pictures. Thou shalt not fret. You can take a photo is lit up and the show is over, with or without Flash. Where go cheaper 17 lost along the way, but now I think that I watched, so if the date is right, it would not hurt.
