Before arriving in Petra, I’d never heard of ‘Little Petra’. We didn’t even know about it until we were driving past it on the way back from the Dead Sea (after stopping to see the sunset at Dana) and made a point to visit the very next day.
Little Petra (real name ‘Siq al-Barid) is actually pretty great! It’s a lot quieter, free to enter and was the first time we actually stopped for tea and a chat with the local Bedouins! (After that, we made it a point of duty to stop for tea wherever we found a spot). Unless you go hiking here, 1 - 2 hours is enough time to explore so be sure to set some time to visit when you do (if you haven’t already been, of course). 😁
