Things to know about Petra (Jordan)

It’s also called the city that is “half as old as time” due to how far back the history of Petra goes. It was created by the Nabataeans over 2000 years ago and was considered to be a “lost city” until it was rediscovered about 200 years ago. Now, you too can discover all that Petra has to offer by using one of our Petra Tour Packages and let your Petra Tour guide you through the corridors of history.

Experiences in Petra
Petra, which is renowned for its allure and rich cultural history, was expertly carved into the mountains by the Nabataean Arabs, an outstanding civilization. As a connection and point of convergence between the Arabian Peninsula in the south and the Levant in the north, as well as to the distant nation of China and the centre of Europe, it was regarded as the most crucial strategic location. Hence, it has a huge range of influences. Our Petra Holiday Packages will allow you to experience Petra with all its beauty and magnificence.

Best Travel Experiences in Petra
When travelling to Petra, one has to check out the Siq, not just due to the fact that it is a must-to-visit but also because it is the ancient main entrance leading to the city of Petra. The Siq, the primary road leading to the city, runs from the Dam to the Treasury. It is an 80-meter-high rock canal that is 160 metres long, 3 to 12 metres wide and has a maximum height of 80 metres. The majority of the Siq's rock formations are natural and the Nabataeans chiselled the rest of it. When you use one of our Petra Holiday Packages, you will get to see this grand entrance in person.
The Treasury, or Al Khazna is Petra's most impressive façade, accessible from the siq. Its exquisite decoration includes Corinthian capitals, friezes, figures and many more. It is about 40 metres high. A funeral urn that sits atop the Treasury is to contain a pharaoh's treasure believed by local folklore. The Treasury was presumably built in the first century BC. The Treasury's function is unknown, some archaeologists felt it served as a shrine, while others assumed it served as a repository for papers. Speculate on your own theories on what it could’ve been by making the most of our Petra Tour Packages and checking it out for yourself. But the most recent dig here uncovered a cemetery beneath the Treasury.
Top Things to Do in Petra
There are more things to do on your Petra Tour other than just sight-seeing and looking at the historical wonders. The Petra Museum is located on the main tourist street and is close to the main entrance of the city. It has 280 artefacts in it, all from various historical periods. Five halls make up the exhibition, which includes information on the Nabatean civilisation and the history of Petra.
At the Grand Hall of the Old Village Resort in Petra, there is a daily activity ‘show’ called Henna Fantasia. Enjoy the traditional dances performed by Henna men and women, where each performance will have its own special customs and accessories providing the authentic experience of old traditional culture. At the conclusion of the performance, the performers also ask the audience to showcase their dance prowess. This is a great stop when you use one of our Petra Tour Packages, as it is a cool way to learn more about the local culture.
Best Places to Eat & Drink in Petra
There are a variety of eating and drinking establishments inside Petra, including Bedouin tea booths, conventional kiosks, cafés and even a full restaurant named The Basin close to the museum where you can enjoy a buffet lunch and bottle of wine. After a long day of walking, the Movenpick Hotel's Arabian-style bar or the Cave Bar beside the Petra Guest House, a 2000-year-old Nabataean tomb turned into a bar, are some of the loveliest locations to stop on the way out. Our Petra Packages will also make sure that you get to try great local food and drink.
What to Buy in Petra?
Your Petra Tour must absolutely include a stop to buy souvenirs and local handicrafts to take back home with you and to gift to loved ones. There are gift shops all across Petra (and the salespeople can be pushy), but the jewellery shop by the museum, managed by New Zealander Marguerite van Geldermalsen, is worth a visit.
