The Hashemite Kingdom holds some of the great mysteries of the Holy Land -- and some pretty good deals, too. The ancient Nabatean city of Petra is one of those proverbial places to see before you die.

Is there a place online, where I can find a reliable car+driver to take one from the border crossing at Eilat to Petra? I am contemplating going into Jordan from Eilat. The other option is to cross from King Hussain Bridge. But I understand there is no visa on arrival on that bridge ? Also what are the approximate costs for a taxi ?

Petra isn't the only worthy site to visit in this hospitable country. I'm just back ten days ago, still reeling from all the history buried in Syira and Jordan. No political problems while we were there. Spend a night in a Bedouin tent in the desert of Wadi Rum if you can. Nothing quite like it. Sad, though, to hear of the latest in Syria.

Unfortunately most of us live in a "been there done that" culture rushing from one place to the other. As Sarah mentions, the ones that are difficult to get to are amazing indeed!

Same for many of the other spectacular facades at Petra, such as The Monastery - there's very little behind them, perhaps an empty space, much smaller than you'd expect from the exterior. But there are buildings that obviously did have pratical uses, like the High Place of Sacrifice and the Theatre. And definitely worth a couple of days rather than the longish afternoon often allowed by many of the package tours - some of the most amazing sites are up on the hilltops and they're hard work to get to...

I was disappointed too, just to see a clearing and a few chambers ( cut out into the walls). But the first glimpse of the Khazaneh through the jagged "siq" before you actually see it in its entirety is simply breathtaking!

" Khazneh" or " Kahazah" as we all know is the "treasury", so we can only assume that it was meant to store treasures.... so the legend goes. But the whole complex is so fascinating that a real enthusiast could spend 2 full days exploring the area.. The Altar, the Temples and the living quarters - 100's of mere squarish holes cut into the rocks!!

Absolutely a must see!
