Beyond the Lost City

Follow Nabatean Traces in Wadi Rum

The Nabateans established trade routes between China, Syria, and Arabia and this required that they have settlements along the way to protect their trades. Nabatean inscriptions as well as water cisterns and cannals can be seen in several locations in Wadi Rum.

Visit the Nabatean's Seaport at Aqaba

At the peak of the Nabatean Kingdom, the Nabateans expanded to marine trade through the Gulf of Aqaba. Aqaba is a diverse city with sun, fun, culture, and history.  If you came to Petra from Aqaba then go back to the beach and enjoy the city’s numerous excursions. You can see Petra in the morning and swim in the red sea in the afternoon!
