Petra – A Wonder of the World

Petra is one of the oldest cities in the world, having been founded in the fourth century B.C. Before 1812, when Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt tricked locals into leading him to the historic remains thought to be the lost city of Petra, it had been virtually forgotten for several decades. Today it is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and the most visited tourist destination in Jordan. With fewer people traveling than they were two years ago, enjoying Petra has become extra special and worthwhile.

The Sights

The night tours in Petra start at 8:30 p.m and end at 10:30 p.m on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. The ticket counter opens at 7:30 p.m, and the cost is around $24. You should ensure to purchase a daytime ticket if you want a night show ticket and don’t want to worry about tickets selling out. Advanced booking facilities are not available since tickets are unlimited. The pathway to the monument has so many vendors selling all kinds of things for tourists. You don’t even need to carry a torch or use a flashlight at night; the whole area is beautifully lit up with candles, and one can have an amazing experience in the canyon. Even though millions of people visit the wonder, you can still appreciate the beauty in peace. It’s a half-hour walk from the ticket center to the treasury.
