For pre- or post- conference activities, Jordan presents an interesting variety of optional sights and activities for conference delegates. The city of Petra is world famous for its impressive UNESCO listed archaeological site, which is accessed through a narrow gorge known as the Siq. At the end of the gorge, visitors are confronted with the archaeological marvel of a building hewn directly from the sandstone. This is Al Khazneh (commonly known as the Treasury), the best known ruin of Petra and arguably the most impressive, although Al Dier (the Monastery) is also very impressive. The archaeological site is quite large and whilst the main features can been seen in a single visit, several days could easily be filled exploring the ancient city.
