Reasons To Visit Saudi Arabia

The vast country of Saudi Arabia encompasses the majority of the Arabian Peninsula and shares a border with the UAE. Home to two of Islam’s holiest cities, Saudi Arabia is also a country with a rich history with plenty of exciting opportunities for travelers. If you are interested in visiting heritage sites and ancient landmarks, there are two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the Al Hijr Archeological Site and the At-Turaif District. Millions of Muslims flock to Mecca each year as part of the Hajj pilgrimage – Mecca itself is a busy city known as a center of culture in Saudi Arabia, while the sprawling city of Riyadh is another great city destination for travelers. While the Arabian Desert makes up a significant portion of the country as a whole, there are plenty of fun activities to do outdoors including camping and desert excursions if you are after an adventure.
