JOJO’s wonderful trip   
The terrain and architecture of Petra Chit has been favored by many Hollywood directors. It is regarded as the alien civilization and the cemetery of Optimus Prime in "Change Cash 2".
Actually, Petras history is still traceable. It is not an alien civilization. Many people think that the first place to be here is the Romans. In fact, before the Romans, the Persians iron hooves also set foot on this land. However, the deserts and gorges surrounding them have caused them to lose interest in an instant. The geographical advantage has made the Nabateans free from war for hundreds of years, and they have been able to operate their own small kingdoms vividly. Until the year of AD, the arrival of the Romans was injected here. A new soul, they made Petra an important station to connect Europe and West Asia. Merchants from West Asia brought wealth. Craftsmen from Europe brought advanced construction techniques. Petra was even more famous and became Rome. The first-tier city of the empire.
But later with the development of maritime technology, more affordable sea transport replaced the land, Petra's status also plummeted, coupled with the depletion of water sources, the city was abandoned, Petra's winter finally Come, for almost a thousand years, there is no one living here.
Petra was revived until the arrival of the Bedouin with super desert survival skills. They gave up nomadic, settled here, and lived in the Nabatean ready-made houses until today.
Beduin people have been working with camels for generations. Today they are also involved in Petra to the tourism industry, providing camels for tourists. We are able to ride camels to the holy city like the explorers of a hundred years ago.

This fire is all over the ins of the network red card, is the world's seven wonders. This is a place that is amazing at a glance, so even if Petra needs to walk a long way, the tickets are called the most expensive in the world, and it does not hinder the tourists who are eager to catch up. After all, this is a unique site. Petra is the capital of the kingdom established by the Nabateans. The Nabateans were ancient Arab merchants who traded in southern Canaan and northern Arabia.

About the 4th century BC, the Nabateans were all Petra;
