I will be in Aqaba for diving and on the way back to Amman I want to see Petra an Wadi Rum, but not sure what makes sense/is realistic.
On Sunday, I’ll be diving and I the afternoon I could transfer to Wadi Rum (have a rental car) and then spend the night there in a desert camp. On Monday morning I would then drive to Petra and do a day tour, and in the evening move on to Aman.
Alternative is to spend another night in Petra an move on to Amman in Tuesday and fly back
( my flight options are all around 2:00 at night).
I know it’s right schedule, so I have to make some sacrifices.
- does it make sense to arrive in Wadi rum in the afternoon just to spend the night (ok if I don’t do an exhaustive desert tour that day)?
- is it realistic to do move on the next day and see enough at Petra without sleeping there? Or should I plan to maybe do a desert tour in Wadi I the morning, then go to Petra and spend a night there, so I can see something next morning and then move to Amman?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
