I travelled there about four weeks ago. It was cold in the morning but warmed up around mid-day and was pleasant. So I'd suggest cover up if you're arriving in the morning.

What would be a good time of the year to visit Eilat, & take a not-too-rushed visit to Petra and Wadi Rum? What routing would make the most sense coming in from Brisbane? Thanks
