About the country

Saudi Arabia boasts a plethora of Red Sea beaches, many of which are undeveloped. Boat tours are now available from places like as Jeddah, Yanbu, and Al-lith. A number of locations have shipwrecks, some of which are fairly old. The Red Sea provides excellent diving opportunities, as well as pleasant temperatures and excellent visibility.

Saudi history is also diverse, ranging from sites associated with local rulers, such as the Barzan area in Hail, the Shubra palace in Taif, and the very popular Masmak Fort in Riyadh, to sites associated with Islam's grand empires, such as the Umayyad dam, the Abbasid Darb Zubayada, and the Ottoman castle of Tabuk.

With the recent issuance of tourist visas in Saudi Arabia, there's never been a better opportunity to visit this interesting Middle Eastern nation.

It serves as a spiritual sanctuary for Muslims.

Mecca and Medina are the holiest cities in Islam, revered by approximately 1 billion Muslims worldwide. The Kaaba, the cubical edifice initially established by Prophet Abraham and his son Ishmael, is located in Mecca, whereas Medina is home to the grave of the Prophet Muhammad, whom Muslims believe is the ultimate messenger of God in a lengthy series of messengers that includes Moses and Jesus

Non-Muslims are not permitted to visit the two cities, but if you are of the religion, they are a must-see. Spirituality, history, and a sense of oneness may all be extremely emotional. This is especially true during Hajj, when up to 3 million people will congregate for a very personal – but collective – experience, a trip in which all become equal before God.

Many historic places in Medina may be visited, including Quba Mosque, Islam's oldest mosque, Al-Baqi' cemetery, where hundreds of Islam's revered personalities are buried, and the Mountain of Uhud, the location of the battle of Uhud. In the case of Mecca, the great bulk of its ancient sites have been tragically destroyed in recent decades. Some were demolished as a result of the Grand Mosque's development, while others were removed because to religious issues
