Looking for travel inspiration for your next vacation? Take a look at my series of reasons to visit Jordan. They will surprise, excite and make you want to go there. In this one: the working animals of Petra.

Camels, donkeys and horses are all working animals at Petra in Jordan. You can ride down to the gorgeous Treasury building on a horse or in a horse-drawn carriage, explore on to and beyond the Roman Amphitheatre on a camel or climb up the steep steps to the must-see Monastery on a donkey.

All are adorned in exotic colours and fabrics and add to the Arabian feel of the magnificent Petra. These are a few of the images of some of the animals that caught my attention there.
