Store your luggage around Petra with Bounce

Visiting Petra in Jordan is a bucket list item for many. As one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the lost city of Petra is one like no other and has impressive monuments and tombs, beautifully carved homes and buildings, and tons of history since the archaeological site dates back to 300 BC. The intricate structures that dominate the landscape were entirely carved by hand out of the surrounding sandstone cliffs and then painted in vibrant colors. The result is a truly breathtaking sight, so if you have the chance to visit Petra, you definitely should.

There are also some fantastic day trips you can take from Petra, including a visit to Wadi Rum, which is about an hour and a half away. Also known as the Valley of the Moon, this scenic area features a valley cut into granite and sandstone near the border with Saudi Arabia.

With all there is to do in Petra and close by, we've created a guide to the best museums, shopping, and restaurants.

Luggage storage in Petra

Whether you're staying at Petra Guest House, the Rocky Mountain Hotel, or the Wadi Musa Hotels Petra, it's likely that you'll need to find some luggage storage at some point. Early check-outs, late check-ins, and day trips are all reasons you might need to store luggage for a few hours or more.

Bounce offers 24/7 customer support, a generous BounceShield guarantee, locations all over the Middle East, pleasant staff, and great prices. Luggage storage is super easy when you choose to partner with us.

When you need to book luggage storage, Petra has convenient Bounce locations that you can book ahead online on our website. You can also download our easy-to-use app to guarantee you have a place to store luggage when you arrive. Whether you're exploring the ancient city, heading to the visitors center, checking out the Royal Tombs, or hopping on the Jett Bus, there's a Bounce location nearby.

Petra city guide

Top things to do in Petra

There's really no shortage of things to do in Petra. The main limit you'll come up against is the time you have to spend in the area. Historical attractions abound here, like the Monastery and the Treasury, both carved into the cliffs. The Royal Tombs and the Byzantine Church are equally impressive. The best thing to do is to head out along the main tourism street from the visitor's center and explore everything as you wander.

Museums in Petra

It won't be hard to find intriguing museums in Petra. Here are a few to get you started:

The Petra Museum

The archaeological park is fantastic for exploring the actual sites, whereas the Petra Museum focuses on the history of this magical city. The museum contains tons of artifacts that help to tell the story of the evolution of Petra over time. Check out the Goddess of Hayyan, a sandstone slab excavated from the Temple of the Winged Lion. Another can't-miss exhibit is the one on Aqua Kaleidoscope, which is dedicated to flood control, water management, and engineering. You'll be impressed by the work of the nomadic tribes that built the city. In all, there are eight galleries to peruse.

The Byzantine Church of Petra

Although not technically classed as a museum, this site is full of history and is worthy of that title. The church is best known for its very well-preserved mosaics. It's located in the city center north of Colonnaded Street on an elevated ground. While you're here, you should also visit the two other churches on the same hillside: the Blue Chapel, made with blue Egyptian granite, and the Ridge (Red) Church, widely considered the oldest in Petra.

The Treasury

With its Hellenistic facade, the outside of this structure is a highlight of any trip to Petra. That's a good thing because people haven't been allowed to enter the building since 1997. Luckily, you aren't missing much. The interior is completely unadorned and was constructed to serve as the tomb of the Nabataean King Aretas III.

Legend has it that an Egyptian pharaoh hid treasure here, which is where the building gets its name. You'll definitely be impressed by this site as it is thought to have been constructed in the first century BC.

As you wander the many attractions in Petra, there are few modern conveniences in the main tourist area (like luggage storage) available. Instead, drop everything off with Bounce so that you're not carrying too much as you venture up the hillsides to check out the buildings.

Shopping in Petra

The city of Petra is run by Bedouins, so don't expect any lavish and modern shopping malls here. The shopping in Petra fits the aesthetic of the archaeological site and focuses on handicrafts, traditional clothing, perfume, and other typical goods found in the region.

Zara Souk

If you want to have a real market experience in Petra, visit the Zara Souk. It's your one-stop-shop for souvenirs, and it showcases items like jewelry, dinnerware, crafts, textiles, and beachwear. This market can get busy, so make sure you have a plan in place for your suitcases before you head here.

City of Wonders Bazar

Located a little up the road from Petra in Wadi Musa, the City of Wonders Bazar is another great place to pick up local products. You can get everything from a glass bottle filled with Petra sand to handmade rugs to artwork here. The jewelry is also a notable item here, with silver dominating the offerings. Everything is claimed to be handmade, although the souvenirs can be surprisingly similar to others found around the city. Just make sure you don't pay too much!

Petra Pottery Association

About 20 minutes from Petra, this pottery workshop is singlehandedly trying to preserve the craft. Two women create plates, pots, and jugs using traditional Nabatean methods. Purchasing a useful or decorative souvenir here helps to keep this little bit of Petra history going and guarantees you won't end up with something that's mass-produced or common.

Many of the shops in Petra are small and showcase delicate (read breakable) items. Don't go shopping with a cumbersome backpack or suitcase. Instead, trust Bounce to look after everything so you can enjoy some retail therapy.

Restaurants in Petra

The restaurants in Petra and Wadi Musa tend to feature Jordanian and Middle Eastern food, but you can find more Westernized selections like pasta, Greek dishes, and even burgers if you look hard enough.

My Mom's Recipe

Located on Tourist Street, My Mom's Recipe Restaurant offers a covered terrace for dining with spectacular views over the surrounding desert landscape. Traditionally decorated in lavish patterned textiles, you'll have no doubt as to where you are when you eat here. The restaurant specializes in barbecue, with the top choices being the shish taouk (marinated chicken cubes) and the kebab (ground beef skewers). These are served with all the accompaniments you could want, like hummus, Turkish salad, and tabbouleh.

The Aloe Vera Restaurant

Also located on Main Tourist Street, The Aloe Vera Restaurant is part of the Petra Guest House and has a lovely patio carved out of sandstone. The interior is more modern than you might expect. The food is served buffet-style, but you can also order a la carte, and the restaurant is open all day, so this is a good option for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

BAHIA Rooftop & Restaurant

A little outside Petra itself, BAHIA Rooftop & Restaurant is on Alzowhor Street in Wadi Musa. As you might have guessed from its name, BAHIA offers excellent rooftop dining with spectacular views. It's best to have dinner here if you can to take advantage of the views at night. BAHIA serves traditional and more Western cuisine, and highlights of the menu include the chicken mandi with hot sauce and the BAHIA casserole with meat pieces, rice, vegetables, and spices. They also have pasta and burgers for those who prefer to eat what they know.

Suitcases, backpacks, and shopping bags can all get in the way when you're sitting down to a nice meal in Petra. Use Bounce to store luggage that you don't need so that you can focus on the delicious flavors and not who is stepping on your stuff.

Conclusion

A trip to Petra is a once-in-a-lifetime thing for many, so it's important to get the most out of your visit. Spend as much time as you can exploring the historical sites in the city and venture a little bit away for shopping and dining in Wadi Musa for the best selection.

Bounce is the ideal partner for your luggage storage needs in Petra, both near the entrance to the Rose City and in Wadi Musa. We also offer informative guides and luggage storage in other cities in Jordan, such as Amman and Jerash or Eilat in neighboring Israel. We can handle your bags while you handle the sightseeing!
