Saudi Arabia Tourism

Saudi Arabia is a trove of mysteries nestled in Western Asia. It’s tough to narrow down the beauty of this sprawling kingdom brimming with marvels of ancient and modern architecture, fabled deserts showcasing the serenely moving caravans, soft sand beaches and rich illuminated cities. No wonder Saudi Arabia hotels and restaurants are some of the best in the region. Having the Gulf of Aqaba and Red Sea to its west, Persian Gulf to its east, Israel, Jordon, Iraq and Kuwait towards north, Yemen, Oman and UAE to its south, Saudi happens to be the largest nation in Arabian Peninsula.

From Mecca, the holiest city in Islam and the birthplace of Prophet Mohammad, to Riyadh’s towering skyscrapers, Saudi Arabia tourism has a lot to offer. The indigenous beliefs say that the first Arabs were descendants of these lands. It is also believed that Saudi is the birthplace of world’s second largest religion, Islam. Saudi Arabia was ruled by the Ottomans between 16th and 18th century. There was a revolt which erupted against other forms of Islam which believably, was being introduced under the Ottoman rule. But finally, the movement failed and Ottomans retained power with the support of their Egyptian Allies. In the year 1964, oil was discovered and this completely vivified the fate of Saudi Arabia. Presently, it cherishes the position of being the second largest oil producer in the world.

‘The Tales of Arabian Nights’ serve as a stark reminder of the magnificence of this land. The royal and magical Arabian culture is a treat for its tourists. People of Saudi Arabia very closely snuggle the Islamic heritage and this transparently reflects in their dressing, talking as well as traditions. You will also get to taste the flavours of the quintessential and rich Arab cuisine. Natives welcome the tourists with immense pleasure and courtesy and bestow them with overwhelming hospitality. From the sprawling capital city of Riyadh, to the religious landmarks of Mecca and Medinah cities, Saudi Arabia is a land like no other in the world.
