TravelPod Member ReviewsEdom Hotel Petra Wadi Musa
The hotel was fine... a bland modern place with a maze of corridors downstairs and a slightly unfinished feel on the accommodation floors. The setting was perfect, just a few hundred metres from the entrance to the Petra world heritage site. It's on a side street so very quiet, but with plenty of restaurants just steps away. My only minor quibble about the hotel would be the showers, but I don't expect much water pressure in the desert.

The new slogan should read: ‘Blood, Sweat & Tears’ Come to Petra ...

coming - and no ticket office open?!) we were served sweetened tea, as is
customary in this country.
The hillsides looked beautiful at night with all the house
lights on, so we took a few quick photos of the hillsides before coming in to
bed. An early morning is planned, to
avoid the heat of the day, so we tried to be as organised as possible.
... and relocated the Bedouins to a brick and mortar village next door. They'd rather live in their tents.
I felt very blessed to see these things and to have the health and strength necessary to make the treck up to the Monastery. It is a long way and all up...but the sights are breath-taking and ever so worth the effort. I will never forget this amazing day. Camels rock.
... typical, but the phrasiology was unique. Never before had Kailey been approached as one of our "sexy angels." She was completely taken aback, and we roared with laughter. He showed up repeatedly throughout the day offering multiple times to take us the rest of the way up, and then on the way back down too. Lindsey was adamant that we thoroughly enjoyed walking. We also ran into a crowd of teenage guys who were instantly in favor of taking selfies with the ...
