Petra - Wadi Musa

— 4 nights
Visitors flock to Wadi Musa to witness the rose colored rock-carved temples and tombs of Petra, the famous ancient city and World Heritage Site.
Get outdoors at Dana Nature Reserve and Photography Tours. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Byzantine Church and The Great Temple. There's much more to do: explore the ancient world of Obelisk Tomb, get engrossed in the history at Petra Museum, and contemplate the long history of Little Petra.

Plan my Petra - Wadi Musa trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Petra - Wadi Musa is an approximately 19-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also do a combination of flight and car. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Jakarta to Petra - Wadi Musa due to the time zone difference. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Wadi Rum.

Historic Sites · Ruins · Deserts
For such a small country, Jordan boasts a surprising variety of natural landscapes and urban attractions. A trip to Jordan takes visitors on a journey back to biblical times, when sites like the Dead Sea and the ancient yet astonishingly well-preserved city of Petra seemed to be at the heart of world events. Although covered in rocky deserts, Jordan boasts a good network of roads, which makes sightseeing by car an easy way to discover many of the country's top highlights. Begin your tour of Jordan in Amman, the largest urban center and a major political, cultural, and economic hub of this Middle Eastern kingdom.
