TravelPod Member ReviewsMarriott Petra Hotel Wadi Musa
Even though this property is 5km from the actual entrance to Petra, I would highly recommend staying here. They have scheduled shuttle service in the morning to take you to the entrance and it is easy to get a cab back in the evening. The views from here at sunset are breathtaking, and of course, as one would expect with a Marriott property, the service was excellent and staff were very friendly.

Somewhere near the top of the 1000 step climb to the Petra monastery, it hits you for the 10th or 11th time- this is an entire city carved by the hand of a civilization that disappeared nearly 2000 years ago from the *********e walls of the south Jordan canyons. Petra is a wonder that must be experienced to truly believe. The visit itself can be an …
We were up early and ate a nice big breakfast to prepare for a very big day.
Today we spent walking, climbing, and riding throughout the Petra area. Oh my goodness, there are too many things to see and write about, so go read about it from somebody who has already written complete works on the place, the home (and craftsmanship) of the …

Things aren't always as clear as they are in Canada. Off we went to pick up the Alford family that were visiting Jordan for a week. What a great time for the kids to have other kids their age …
Our great hosts at the Bedouin Village arranged for our 2 hour taxi ride to Wadi Musa and one of the new 7 wonders of the world, Petra. No matter how many pictures you have seen of Petra, including scenes from Indiana Jones that was filmed here, it is breathtaking to see in person. You ascend a 2 km path through a canyon which, in and of itself is incredible at every turn, to reach the Treasury ( a mausoleum used to bury kings) which dates back to the 1st century BC. ...
... was a beautiful restaurant and museum. We ate lunch there. Beautiful salads.
We walked back. It took about 1 1/2 hours. Some of our traveling companions took a donkey and some a camel. They finished the journey in a mule pulled carriage that clattered along the cobblestones. They were sitting in a cafe drinking iced coffee when we finally make it out!
What a great day!
Tomorrow we drive to Israel!
