If you have time, take a look around this quiet, smaller, less grandiose version of Petra. Bring a picnic, relax and soak up some more tombs.

Little Petra will give you an idea what to expect at Petra. The best part is hardly tourists flock here, you can get the best pictures and enjoy the olden era.

4pm would be too late as it gets darker early in January. You may not be able to explore the area fully.

You don't need a guide for Little Petra it is only a couple of hundred metre long. There are locl guides just after the car park if you really want one. It is far to far to walk to Petra itself, took us 15 mins on the coach.
