Things to see in Saudi Arabia

  • Mecca

    The birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad, Mecca has long been a popular destination for Muslim tourists. In fact, every Muslim who has the financial means to do so is required to make a pilgrimage to Mecca (known as the €œHajj€) once in his or her lifetime, according to the Quran.Non-Muslims are prohibited from entering city of Mecca as well as the area around the iconic Kaaba stone.

  • RIYADH€™S KINGDOM CENTRE TOWER

    Kingdom Centre is such an iconic symbol of Saudi Arabia€™s capital that an emoji version of it shows up when you say you€™re €œ

  • EMPTY QUARTER

    Although the vast majority of the aptly-named €œEmpty Quarter€ technically belongs to Saudi Arabia, there are no borders here€”it€™s just sand, after all, with nothing different about it between Saudi Arabia, Oman, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen. On the other hand, the Empty Quarter (which is known in Arabic as Rub€™ al Khali) is far from boring, whether you come on a camel safari, to drive 4x4s through the dunes or to visit with the nomadic tribes who call this seemingly inhospitable place home.A number of places in Saudi Arabia are accessible to independent travelers once visas start being issued, but this is probably a destination for which you€™ll want to have a guide. Can you imagine how difficult it would be to find your way out of sand dunes alone? To say nothing of all the rodents and scorpions who call this area home€”it€™s best to set up camp according to the recommendations of someone who knows the lay of the land!

When to visit in Saudi Arabia

  • The best time to visit Saudi Arabia is during winter between the months of late October and early March. However, Asir Mountains, located in the south-western part of Saudi Arabia, are impregnable in winters due to excessive fog, and should be visited either before November or after February.
