Petra, Jordan.

Why now

Often referred to as The Lost City, Petra is in danger of again
being lost due to a plunge in tourist numbers. There is no better
time to go than now to explore one of the Seven Wonders of the
Modern World because your visit will benefit the local community
and you will have many of the big sites to yourself.

When to go

March to May or October to November are the best times to go. Although it doesn’t
get overly hot or cold at any time of year.

Who to take with you

Someone curious and a guide for safety (as well as knowledge).
Adeeb Alhasanat from Jordan Inspiration Tours is unreal.

Most likely to bump into…

Bedouins who still lives in homes in the rocks. And lots of
goats and sheep.

Don’t miss

Riding around on a horse or mule – just make sure you pick a
sturdy one.

Essentials you need to bring with you

A battery pack for your phone. Petra is 264 square kilometres
(in other words, enormous) and it is incredibly easy to get lost
exploring the ruins so you’ll want to be able to call someone if
you can. Good walking shoes and a hat are also very important.

How to get there

Fly to Amman, Jordan and drive two and a half hours.
