THE PETRA AT NIGHT EXPERIENCE
Although you must go inside together with the group, if you are lucky, everybody will be silent as recommended, while walking through the candle lit Siq so that you can feel the mystery of the place.
At the Treasury you sit on mats on the ground and listen to the traditional Bedouin music played on their special instruments while sipping that wonderful sweet and flavoured tea.
No words can describe this experience!
