Petra By Night, Petra - Wadi Musa

1.9
#4 of 8 in Historic Sites in Petra - Wadi Musa
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.

I swear I fell asleep!

    The walk along the siq by candle is fun and the Treasury does look impressive lit up softly at night....but the music show is a bit lame and the unveiling of the tourist shops right opposite the Treas...  more »
