    I see 9 people in the photo! On my visits in the late 70's i doubt if we saw 9 people during the whole day!

      well at least the front 4 and myself where part of a VT group converging on the area lol but yes guess this is an area that has progressively become more open to the independent traveller circuit and not just reliant on elite tour packages - thankfully.
      i would love to visit here again

      i had no idea it was so much more than just some buildings in the rocks lol! took lots of pics and didnt make many tips...theres still the roman ruins that need to go in here too. and then of course there was Wadi Rhum which was really beautiful.

    Beautiful Petra! Your tips and photos bring back good memories, and I can't believe it is already more than eleven years since I visited.

    Excellent page Angela bringing back memory about this magnificent place! You even climbed up above the city of Petra. I can imagine how beautiful it looks from there...

    Great information and photos on Petra. I'm trying to better understand the site before my trip in December. Would love to see the painted ceiling you've captured in your photos. Cheers!

    This really does look like an awesome destination -- no wonder everybody gets excited by the first sighting of the Treasury! And I love your photos of Nabatean art at Little Petra, too.
