Best Things to See in Petra, Jordan
Petra, Jordan: the best things to do. There is more to see than the Treasury. Visit the awesome Monastery, get a bird's eye view from the High Place of Sacrifice, ride a camel, and meet the Bedoin people.
Petra at night. I will never forget walking at night in the desert, in silence, only candles guiding me under the stars until you reach the passage and, finally,the treasure. It was beautifully overwhelming.

The lost city of Petra, remains of an ancient, rich civilization that was the centerpiece of 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade' is clearly a destination to be explored at least once in this lifetime!
