Petra in Jordan was one of the highlights of my trip to the Middle East. It is simply amazing. Because of the midday heat and the crowds I planned out my three day stay wisely: After sightseeing in the morning, I returned to the hotel for a nap and went back to the site in the early evening. Lots of walking this way but also lots of rewards like this one: Seeing the Treasury from the Siq void of any people at 6:30am!
