About this country
The birthplace and home of Islam, Saudi Arabia is a land that is rich in both, culture and attractions. For the archaeology enthusiasts, Madain Saleh is among its prized possessions dating back to the 1st century. The city of Riyadh has played a pivotal role in envisioning the modern day Saudi Arabia, while Jeddah blends ancient and modern with the old city on one side, and the Red Sea coast on the other. And for Muslim travellers, Mecca and Medina represent the holiest destination in belief.
