Jordan - best way to get to Petra?
I want to head from Israel to Jordan to see the temples at Petra. There is no way I want to miss seeing this incredible sight but I am a little hard up for money. I plan on entering Jordan via the border at Aqaba. What is the best option from there for getting to PEtra? Do I need to take a tour or can i get there on my own steam and see the place without paying for a guide etc. From Petra I want to go to Amman and leave via plane from there. Is there anything worth seeing in the desert on the way to Amman? Any advice on getting the most out of Petra without paying a lot of money is much appreciated!! Thanks
