We passed through here as part of the trek I completed and little Petra was as amazing as big Petra. Whilst the carved buildings aren't as impressive as the other well known Petra, they are still amazing to see. A must see, if you see one, you must see the other.

Although not so impressive and wide as Petra, Little Petra (Al Beidha) has positive points over Petra. The site is free entrance (compared to 50JOD, 58euro, 76$) and gives you in only 1 hour a good idea what to discover in Petra.

The Bedouin staff encourage you to visit everything,... More

It is worth a short stop. Not as spectacular as Petra but was a nice walk with many fewer people. The kids had fun with the more open spaces. There was an old Bedouin man playing traditional music which made it fun and interesting.

I had not been to little petra before. It is called the cold place, and even on a hot day it was. It is so different that it is a must see.
