Dress in layers as the temp drops at night. Take a flashlight for safety but your eyes acclimatize really well to the low levels of light from the lit candles on the way. They... read more

While it may seem hokey, this is still a marvelous way to see the Treasury building in a very special way. Hint: be sure to bring a flashlight (the pathway dimly lit by candles and the canyon floor is rocky and dress warmly, it's the desert and it gets cold at night.

We were one of the first in the queue at the gate rather than gathering at the visitors centre. Easy if you have got your tickets already or indenpendantly, not as part of a group. There is a 20 min march down the Siq to the Treasury lit only by small oil lanterns. Lovely is you are taking a leisurely... More

Go the first and leave the last if you want the best experience. Walking on silence there watching the stars it is an experience that you can only get without people. Try to leave the last. You will enjoy it

Dress in layers as the temp drops at night. Take a flashlight for safety but your eyes acclimatize really well to the low levels of light from the lit candles on the way. They serve hot Mint tea while you listen to the flute and another string instrument (pardon my ignorance) followed by the face of the treasury that is... More

Seeing the Treasury at night before seeing it in the daytime is really the way to go! There is a lot of walking thru the siq in the dark so i suggest bringing a flashlight. I was happy i did! The Treasury looks amazing when they turn on the lights at the end. Once you see how BIG it really... More

We are pleased we took the long walk and saw Petra at night (thank goodness for the torch light on the phone!) Apart from being much cooler than the day, it was amazing to see the lights on Petra. After the evenings entertainment (stories and music) everyone seems to want to stand in front of the spotlights for photos. This... More

I did not know about Petra by Night before I arrived - and was lucky that I get to see it during my one-night stay. It was a magical experience - albeit tainted by people using their phone flashlight which ruins the darkness.
