Saudi Arabia, officially the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is a country on the Arabian Peninsula in Western Asia. It has a land area of about 2,150,000 km², making it the fifth-largest country in Asia, the second-largest in the Arab world, and the largest in Western Asia.
Saudi Arabia’s rich heritage and traditions have been shaped by its position as a historic trade hub and the birthplace of Islam. In recent years, the Kingdom has undergone a significant cultural transformation, evolving centuy-old customs to fit the contemporary world we live in today.
With tourism wide open in the Kingdom, it’s easy to find things to do in Saudi Arabia. Adventure travelers heading to the Middle East are quad biking in the red sand dunes of Rub’ Al Khali (Empty Quarter), sopping up the scents and souvenirs of Riyadh‘s oldest souqs and diving in the pristine coral of the Red Sea. With a little pre-planning, guests to KSA also can explore an oasis in Eastern Province, camp at a crater near Taif and ride a camel in Thumamah National Park!
