I'm planning to visit Petra and spend 2 days and a night there. I will be leaving from JLM and will be traveling (Oct 5 Sunday) alone by Egged bus 444 Leaving @14:00 and arriving 18:52 in Eilat.
Please suggest where should i spend the night before Petra. Should i cross the border and stay in Aqaba upon arrival or stay overnight in Eilat and cross the border the next day?
How is the border crossing at night night time? I will have a pre-arranged visa already so i guess i will be a step faster.
What will be better and smoother?
