    Petra and a wheel chair / free entrance disabled

    by dutchboycalledjan Written Apr 16, 2008

    Favorite thing: Entry: 20 dinar. This is funny: entrance to Petra is free for disabled people, but there is no way they can manage it in a wheel chair!
    Take care: this is true only for individuals, not with a group. So when you're disabled, you should 'buy' your tickets yourself and not let your guide or travel agent do it! (We did get a refund, but from a different ticket boot).

    Fondest memory: Sitting in the restaurant, eating and talking with the monumental wall at the horizon.

    Petra with Children

    by Guzzie19 Written Aug 5, 2008

    Favorite thing: Please have in mind the suny-hot SUN of Petra and all Jordan. Inside Petra its definitely a lot of walking and some with rocky parts. I would say to imagine that you are going hiking to get dirty and walk and walk which must be kind of a task with children under 6 years old.

    The walk to the Siq and the first parts may take about an hour... it goes very fast. I would do the carriages for your kid and stay at the Movenpick which is very close to enter the site

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Wadi Musa is the closest town to Petra. Travelers usually book accommodation here when they visit the Nabataean city. There are many hotels and restaurants.

    Just a bit further

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Once you have walked all the way to the Monastery & if you still have the energy a few minutes further walking up the rocks will take you to some fantastic views.

    Petra Adventure

    by nepalgoods Updated Feb 9, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Even though Petra is very save and people everywhere, it can be quite adventerous to explore the stony environment. Deep and narrow gorges and some steep pathes lead into the red mountains of Petra.

    THE SIQ

    by Helga67 Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: On each side of the dirt path, brilliantly coloured rock rises toward the sky. The closer you get to the Treasury, the more vivid the shades of red, orange and pink seem to become.

    Favorite thing: I stayed two nights at Wadi Musa. This town offered me this sunset as well as the call to prayer that came from the nearby mosques.

    The View from the High Place of Sacrifice

    by Blatherwick Written Aug 23, 2005

    Fondest memory: Looking down on the Street of Facades from the High Place of Sacrifice was just amazing. What was really funny is that a Bedouin couple was using the acoustics to talk to each other between cliffs.

    Fondest memory: Near the Monastery are some of the best views anywhere. What a sense of peace "for I have seen the promised land."
