I arranged a two-day tour to Jordan before I left the U.S. There are two places where you can cross the border into Jordan from Israel to go to Petra. I chose to cross at Eilat, Israel. Eilat is a port town and resort town in the Southern Negev Desert of Israel just across the Red Sea from Egypt. It is at the southern end of the Red Sea on the Gulf of Aqaba and is famous for its beaches, coral reefs, nightlife, and desert landscapes. Eilat is the southernmost city in Israel, about 200 miles south of Jerusalem and is on the border of four countries – Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. It is amazing to stand on the shore of the Red Sea and see four Middle East countries with such varied histories and in such varied current states.
