    Petra is a very quiet little town and would suit people who have a hobby or something to study in their free time. Apart from visiting Petra (about 2 or 3 days) there isn't alot else to do in the town. Walking, horse-riding, studying arabic, reading or visiting other places in Jordan (Aqaba, Wadi Rum).
