8 DAYS UNVEILING SAUDI ARABIA

Abha, Najran, Riyadh, Al Ula & Jeddah

History & Culture, Off the Beaten

Highlights

  • A carefully curated walking tour of Jeddah
  • A hosted dinner with a Saudi family
  • Hiking in the Abha Mountain region

Saudi had just opened for tourism at the end of 2019. Apart from being best known as the birthplace of Islam, Saudi is also blessed with unique historical and cultural heritage. Even for the most jaded travellers to exotic destination, the warmth and hospitality of the locals are what make the trip truly amazing.

This trip explores Saleh Madain, which like Petra is a stunning archaeological site left behind Nabatean along the ancient Frankincense trail except that it has only a small fraction of the tourists. Abha and Narjaan region is blessed with its mountainous landscape, unique mud architectures and colourful traditions. We will also visit Riyadh and Jeddah with their distinctly different flavours.
