    Petra is very popular tourist site also for the local Jordanians as well as for the other neighboring countries, you will see lots of Muslims dressed with their tradition clots, however, for westerners there is no any real restrictions, or at list I didn't saw any, maybe they wouldn't like it if you hang out with a bikini here, but on the hot days of most of the year here, you can fell freely wearing your usual summer cloths even if they are shorts and small tops, just be sure nothing is popping out by mistake... ;-)

    Although in my Petra photos Alex and I are wearing shorts, we didnt remove our skirts until we were actually in the site of Petra itself, and when ever we came across local people we coverd up.

    It is a Muslim country, so apart from the respect issue for their culture, it helps save you a lot of unwanted attention from over friendly men.
