First trip to Petra and we loved it. Be prepared for a long walk to the treasury, but the reward is great. Somewhat disappointed to see so many vendors there, but it's understandable given the tour traffic.

It is one of kind experience to be here.. amazed at how people of the ancient time took the trouble carving out holes and monuments and stuff from the rocky hills and mountains. After thousands of years the ruins are still beautiful.

Yes you can hire a horse drawn chariot to take u from the visitor centre to the treasury and back. It takes 2 people and the 'driver'. Not sure how much it should cost but you should haggle.
