Well, I like to use the Search tool,
Our friends who lived in Dubai, UAE for 6 years flew to Jordan and saw Petra once. They said it was really amazing.
But hot. And they were used to the heat. Go in their 'winter'. (They said Turkey/Istanbul was cheaper and more interesting. Also go there during the comparitively cooler time of year!)
The said it was pretty modern and clean and safe- tourist friendly- but pricey; Turkey was cheaper.
Hey, thanks for the tips. My Mom has seen the pictures of Petra and of course that would be the only attraction in the area, besides the Dead Sea, that she wants to visit. Regarding cost, well, we are still in the pre-planning stage and anything can happen.
