Saudi Arabia Tour: The Forbidden Kingdom
The Saudi Arabia tour is a journey into the forbidden kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a country with a long and rich history.
As the birthplace of Islam, Saudi Arabia has been shielding itself from the eyes of the west for a long time but the Kingdom is now moving in huge steps towards modernization and openness.
Saudi Arabia is a country with a vibrant cultural pedigree, aside from its glitzy oil-rich modern cities.
You will explore Nabatean heritage equal to what Petra offers in terms of Nabatean architectural remains.
Amongst the highlights are the rock-hewn splendors of UNESCO World Heritage site Mada’in Saleh and Mada’in Shoeb.
Most of the great empires of the ancient world traded with the Arabian Kingdoms that commanded the important spice trade routes in the peninsula.
Colorful markets, desert landscapes, coral reefs, rock engravings, ancient monuments, traditional mud-brick cities and imposing fortresses are abundant in a country that has so much to offer. Those who choose to explore its enigmatic and intriguing culture will be richly rewarded.
Visit, Saudi Arabia, a nation that is seldom exposed to the eyes of the outsiders.
- UNESCO World Heritage site of Madain Saleh
- Mount Souda, Khamis Mushayt, Habala & Hamsan Villages
- Ushaiger Historic Village
- Al Ahsa/Al Hafuf, considered the largest oasis in the world
NOTE: The Madain Saleh is going through detailed restoration at the moment and it is very hard to predict when it is going to be open so if it will be closed at the time of our visit we will offer another Nabataean site known as Madain Shuaib.
