The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a study in contrasts. From Al Jouf in the north to Jazan in the south, you’ll find arid deserts and lush forests, ancient archaeological digs and modern architecture, haute cuisine and street food with plenty of Saudi hospitality. Discover this diverse country on a summer getaway on a Red Sea coastal tour or a day trip adventure through the caves and mountains of Tabuk. Riyadh, the capital, is a blend of the ancient and modern. The birthplace of the kingdom and a thriving, forward-thinking metropolis, history and heritage come to life in this exciting and ever-evolving city. Over the years, no Saudi city has been more open to outside influencers such as traders, international artists and Makkah-bound pilgrims than the ancient port of Jeddah. The city’s heart is still intact in Al Balad, the magical historical quarter that has undergone a renaissance in recent years. And the Red Sea is still central to it all — for trade, for diving among pristine reefs, and for fishing for Jeddah’s legendary seafood.
