Re: traveling from cairo to petra
to go by car from Suez to Petra, you will need to take the AB Maritime (http://www.abmaritime.com.jo/main.html) car ferry from Nuweiba (NOT Taba) to Aqaba. From Aqaba, Petra is about a hour's drive, perhaps a little more, particularly since there seems to be speed traps every 10 km along that road.
The ferry is unfortunately dirty, expensive and never, ever leaves on time, or even within 3 or 4 hours of its scheduled departure time.
