Updated 2016 One of the top tourist attractions in Jordan, and all of the Middle East, Petra is the forgotten city that people (and time) forgot about for more than 1000 years. These days it's jam packed with tourists and, much like the Pyramids of Cairo, it's worth every penny that you pay. We are still building our Indie Guide to Petra. Do you have some inside info you'd like to share? Contact us! In the meantime, get started reading, On the Road to Petra.
