Jordan early March (1 Viewer)

There is a birder from Jordan that is available on Saturday Sunday so I can meet him. That is why I want ot visit Aqaba on weekend. How much of Petra can be seen in a full day? i want to see as much of it as possible. I would prob get there 10am-11am at latest.

I am not a very good birder so seeing some of the birds you saw would prove to be difficult. I would love to see the country as well - history, culture, landscapes not just birds.

You should be able to see quite a bit of Petra in a day - although if you're really keen on seeing all of it in detail then you would need longer. I think Jordan is a good country for combining an interest in history and culture with birding. It would be a good idea to pick up a copy of a travel guide e.g. Lonely Planet or Rough Guide for info on historical sites.

I suppose i could always stay 2 days at Petra. i have not booked any hotel yet.

By the way what gift would you get a Jordanian birding pal member who will accompany me for at least a day on visits? I will only have access to supermarkets tomorrow so any ideas?
