The ancient city of Petra (9 BC – 40 AD) is a historic city in southern Jordan. It is one of the mysterious ancient cities in the desert of southern Jordan and one of Jordan’s most prestigious historic sites. On July 8, 2007, he was selected as the new Seven Wonders of the World. The ancient city of Petra is located in the desert of southern Jordan, about 260 kilometers from the capital Amman and 1000 meters above sea level. It is almost entirely carved out of the rock, and the rock of Petra’s ruins has a jewel-reddish hue that glows in the sun. The special landform makes it a beautiful color, so it is also known as the “Old City of Roses”.
If this Wonder of the Ancient World isn’t already on your bucket list, it should be. Early next year, the Petra Museum is slated to open, telling the story of this magical place. “Travel to the Middle East is making a comeback, indicating travelers want to explore the region for themselves, beyond the media headlines,” says Jenny Gray, Intrepid Travel’s regional product manager for the Middle East. “The travel ban proposed by President Trump in 2017 appears to have actually spurred interest in the region, with travelers wanting to learn about the countries they continually hear about in the news and make their own decisions about them.” Intrepid Travel, which offers 22 different itineraries in Jordan, has seen a 112 percent growth on bookings to the Middle East.
