Here comes my own Travel guide for visit Petra in Jordan:

1. Petra Visitor Center

This map will you get at the main entrance when you buy your ticket. Petra Visitor Center is marked on the map below. It´s here the journey in Petra begins.

2. As Siq

You will see many ruins and tombs along the road from the main entrance through Petra. But the first stop I would say is called “As Siq”.

3. The Treasury (Al- Khazneh)

Next stop is the great treasury that is best known from Petra. It is called “The Treasury” or “Al – Khazneh”. It´s two different names but same thing.


4. Royal Tombs

Then it is the stop named “Royal Tombs” which is awesome and located to your right hand side along the road. In this area there are several different tombs available which you can also walk inside and see how it looks like.

6. Qasar al- Bint

Here is the final stop called “Qasar al- Bint” if you have a guide with you. After that, you’re on your own and can stroll around, which is very nice because the guide have a tendency to rush you through Petra.

7. The Monastery

Do you want to continue and see “Ad-Deir Monastery”, located at the top about 1-1.5 hour’s hike from the end station with the guide, I would highly recommend you to do it. Do you have the strength left it is an amazing experience to see. Bring a water bottle and some snacks with you, you will surely need it!


8. Petra by night

Last but not least, do not forget “Petra by night” which is an amazing experience! Starting at 20.30 in the evening every MondayWednesday and Thursday. Make sure to be at the main entrance on time!


Have you been in Petra, what did you think about it?

  1. Har kollat din insta och sett alla härliga Jordan bilder där. Petra har varit på min reselista länge men har inte lyckats få med mig någon dit och det känns inte som ett land man direkt åker till som själv tjej, eller har jag fel? bra tips med guiden 🙂 hoppas på att få rum i min resekalender med ett besök dit om inte allt för länge.

      Hej Pernilla! Vad roligt att du gillar min guide! Jag åkte själv till Petra och runt i hela Jordanien då jag inte lyckades få med mig någon som ville med. Det fungerade förvånansvärt bra! Blev förvånad men det var många andra på plats som Jag hade bokat en privat guide som körde mig överallt och som verkligen tog hand om mig. Lite som en “extrapappa”. Jag har skrivit om honom också lite längre ner i ett inlägg. Kontakta gärna honom om och när det är dags för dig att åka dit. Men som sagt, jag åkte själv och det gick jättebra!
