In September 2019, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia opened its doors to foreign visitors from all over the world. For the first time ever, discerning travellers can finally explore the rich heritage, culture, diverse and breath-taking landscapes before mass tourism arrives and our Travel Specialists are excited to share this Arabian jewel with you.
Riyadh, one of the wealthiest cities in the world, may not come across as charming, but the capital is home to the country’s best museum, bustling traditional souqs and the UNESCO listed mud brick walls of Ad Diriyah, the birthplace of the first Saudi state. The other city to visit got to be Jeddah, the gateway for pilgrims to Mecca and Medina. Located by the Red Sea, Jeddah is a diverse and rich melting pot of cultures and the city is thriving from the burgeoning arts and culture scene to the foodie culture and countless architecture influence.
Beyond Riyadh and Jeddah, travellers will be surprised to find the lush and verdant mountain range of Asir, with picturesque hillside villages and mudstone houses that is unique in this region. Of course, no visit to Saudi Arabia can be complete without visiting AlUla. This oasis in the desert was a vital crossroad along the Incense trade route which connected Asia, Africa and Europe centuries ago. Discover centuries of civilizations at this living museum with the 2,000-year-old Nabatean tombs of Madain Saleh as the most impressive! Imagine Petra but minus the crowd!
The best time to visit Saudi Arabia starts from October to March, when the weather is pleasant and dry.
