PETRA, STILL BEAUTIFUL OR NOT?Page 1 of 1    
Has anyone else visited the city of petra in jordan, was beautiful and breath-taking when first visited
it over 20 years ago, way city built into the surroundiong cliffs, and hidden away for hundreds of years,

i know lot changed since then, although wondering it for the better, as know lot of beautiful places we first travel to
becomes so commercialised that they seem to lose their individualism

who else has visited places long ago, then again after they became well known, and wished could turn clock back,

As of 2010, it was still wonderful. With a student ID, it was literally half-off for a one-week pass. More than enough to explore for a full week. The town seems pretty small to me (at least as compared to Siem Reap, next to Angkor Wat in Cambodia). People were very friendly.

Of course, having been there only once, I have no earlier time to compare it to. But if I were anywhere in the Middle East, I'd definitely get back to southern Jordan to see Petra (and Wadi Rum) again.
