Exploring the Desert

The Treasury — Pro-tip: Come to Petra either in the early morning or hang around until later in the afternoon after 4pm to avoid the crowds
  1. Get some JOD before you get into Jordan if you can because the airport foreign exchange will charge you commission. They look like they’re charging a fair rate…until they add on their 6% commission. In case you can’t, just change enough because there are a number of foreign exchanges and ATMs in Amman.
  2. It cost 50 JOD to get into Petra and another 50 JOD for a guide (worth it!)
  3. Go see the Monastery if you can at Petra!
  4. Definitely go to Wadi Rum if you’re planning to go to Petra. That being said, save at least 36 hours for Petra and Wadi Rum but stay longer if you can.
  5. Stargazing is pretty darn worth it with @RumSky.Jo
