Deep in the desert of Jordan lies the ancient city of Petra. Through a narrow gorge you will see it emerge, revealing awe-inspiring monuments cut into the surrounding cliffs. Explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site and enjoy the health and beauty benefits of the Dead Sea on a 2-day tour from Dahab. Petra stood at a crossroads of the ancient Near East 2,000 years ago. Camel caravans passed through, loaded with spices, textiles, and incense from distant regions, and through such commerce, the city flourished. Its people, the Nabataeans, harnessed precious water, enabling the population to soar to about 20,000. Archaeologists are discovering clues to Petra's past. The spectacular objects displayed here, many unearthed by recent excavations, shed new light on this extraordinary ancient city.
Israel's famous Dead Sea is the lowest and saltiest spot on earth, and is popular with visitors who wish to swim or float in the salt-rich waters and enjoy therapeutic mud bath treatments.
