The journey time is approximately five hours.

Your base for 2 nights is Hyatt Zaman a charming hotel situated on a hillside in the village of Taybeh, close to the famous rose-red city of Petra. Whilst it is fairly simple, the Hyatt Zaman provides a comfortable base and plenty of character.
If you are in Petra on a Monday, Wednesday or Thursday, we recommend experiencing 'Petra by Night'. Enter though the Siq to see the Treasury lit by thousands of candles, and enjoy local music and Arabic tea in front of the iconic Treasury. This is truly an amazing Experience and a wonderful way to see the first glimpse of the Treasury.

The following day, you will get to experience the whole of the glorious Petra site. Start the day with a two-hour tour with a local guide, who will introduce you to the history of the legendary rose-red city. Wind your way through the Siq and along the main thoroughfare where you can stop off to see temples and tombs. Your tour will usually finish at the Qasr al Bint temple, and from here you can climb up the 800 steps to reach the Monastery, a beautiful temple carved into the rock face. You will have the rest of the day to explore the site at your leisure.
