Day 5 of 30 Days of Travel – Petra by Night, Petra, Jordan.
Petra, the once mighty capital city of the Nabatean empire, is a top site to visit on any trip to Jordan. While most travelers visit Petra for a whirlwind few hours in one day, this labyrinth city has plenty to offer travelers who stay a few days. A not to be missed experience is Petra by Night. A candle lit path leads travelers through the siq to an illuminated Treasury. Marvel at this architectural masterpiece lit by dozens of candles and under a blanket of stars.
Travel tip: Book early as this popular even fills up. It is only offered certain night of the week, check with the official Petra website for exact times.
