Things to do in Petra Wadi Musa

Petra is known as the Rose City due to the colour of the kingdom’s rock carvings. Petra is Jordan’s most visited attraction. The ancient Nabataean capital remained unknown to the western world until 1812 when a Swiss explorer discovered numerous spectacular sites in the area. The picturesque Wadi Rum has been the setting for numerous films including Lawrence of Arabia.

With soaring mountains, vast plains and ancient Bedouin history, this is a unique Jordanian experience that features awe-inspiring rock formations. The hotel can also arrange excursions (for a fee) to the Dead Sea, Aqaba, the Red Sea and the 12th century Crusader castles at Shobak and Kerak.
