Petra By Night, Petra - Wadi Musa

1.1
#6 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.

  • The light show and tea is amazing, everything else including people talking and using flas all the time is just not worth it. If you are on a budget and not that into local culture just skip it.  more »
  • A long walk to just see the illuminated monument. I expected much more, especially for the amount charged.
