    Beautiful. Took my children here. They bought their toy guns they get at the city center and ran around while we took in all the beauty!

    I have wanted to visit Petra ever since I saw it for the first time in an Indiana Jones movie.

    It did not disappoint.

    We did the night visit when we arrived; so gorgeous and special.

    And then we went back the next day for a more complete tour. Fascinating place. With stunning sights.

    Soak up the Orient 😀
    Vivid, colourful, exotic, smells of spices, roasted nuts, chestnuts, corn and dozens of stalls selling sweets, confectioners, ice cream, toys on one side and shops on the other, selling souvenirs, clothes, fresh juices, parfumes, shining gold shops., cafés, restaurants, old buildings... Al Balad is a busy place, full of people and cars. Strangely enough, all this hustle and bustle is a kind of relaxing. Do not miss The Duke's Diwan - the oldest building in the heart of Amman, Roman theatre, Hashem restaurant, king Faisal avenue with beautiful tall palm trees. Enjoy during the day, also at night 😀

    Must do if you're visiting Jordan. Very inspiring to visit the place where the Christian story of personal redemption begins.

    Walking through the Siq is amazing, coming out to see Al-Khazneh is beyond description. Go early to avoid the crowds and the hustlers. We were there at 7:00 and got a picture with nobody else in it.

    Simple fortress,nice view to the sea. Probably more colourful during sunset. Free entrance. When surrounding area is ready it will be a great socialising place.

    Interesting area of Amman pretty much requalified and made more youngsters friendly. We decided to spend an evening strolling around after reading its beauties on our Lonely Planet but we have been a bit disappointed, maybe we expected too much

    Amazing time tunnel, this is the feeling I got passing through this main entrance to reach Al Khazneh of the magnificent Nabataean Petra, the walk is thrilling and never experienced before.

    Such a beautiful and unexpected surprise! This mosque is open to non-Muslims. The staff has been very kind and the mosque itself is really worth a visit. It’s huge and I recommend to visit early when not crowded

    Near a mosque on the outskirts of Amman, this is a fascinating location to visit. Steeped in Islamic tradition, the cave was where seven men slept for 309 years to avoid persecution. A staff member at the mosque adjacent to the cave gave a great presentation about the cave and the sleepers in both Arabic and English (because of our presence).

    We were the only non-Muslims present at the time of our visit. Here is where the memory begins. We were welcomed with an outgoing kindness that was not expected. Conversations were had with families and children, pictures were taken, and a sense of happiness and fellowship was pervasive. We will never forget this experience.

    We really enjoyed our visit here. The bell tour gives a good view and going under the church is very interesting historically. Exceeded our expectations for sure!
