Petra By Night, Petra - Wadi Musa

1.8
#4 of 10 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.

  • It is clear that the authors of positive reviews for this tourist trap have an intense interior life enough to appreciate the wait at the dentist or the sad chore. They think that the half hour Piper takes 10 minutes as the endless tale in English that even the Jordanian do not understand. Do not spoil your visit to Petra with that thing.
