At the Heart of the Arabian Peninsula

For centuries the land that now makes up Saudi Arabia has been a mystery to outsiders—but things are changing. At the initiative of the ruling Saud family, the country is opening up and travelers are welcome.

The diversity and breadth of what the kingdom has to offer visitors is astounding. Astonishingly beautiful prehistoric petroglyphs, monumental ancient tombs, outstanding cuisine, medieval oasis villages, and futuristic skyscrapers are all on offer. Beyond the world-class sights, you’ll experience the distinctive places where Saudis lead their daily lives—from bustling bazaars to sacred mosques—and get out into the majestic and surprisingly varied landscapes.
