Reopening of international flights in Saudi Arabia: 3 destinations not to be missed

Saudi Arabia announced the partial resumption of its international flights as of today, as well as the full end of the travel suspension for January 1, 2021. For those who had planned to visit the country, recently opened to non-religious tourism, this is an opportunity to review your roadmap with 3 destinations not to be missed.

AlUla

Unquestionably the jewel in the crown of the kingdom, AlUla brings together all the components of a successful getaway: lunar landscapes to explore on foot, on horseback, in a buggy or even by helicopter, archaeological secrets as yet unexplored, scattered over the vast site of Hégra, and a hotel and restaurant offer that has nothing to envy to more historically touristic regions.

Taif

Climb up and discover the mountains in the Taif area, where climbing enthusiasts of all levels will find challenges in the great outdoors. For a plunge into the local culture, visit the Souk Okaz, the former largest and most popular open-air market in the Islamic world, where poetry contests, traditional costume shows, and camel demonstrations are held.

 

 

Jeddah

Much more relaxed than its sister city and capital of the country Riyadh, Jeddah is a coastal city that offers a breathtaking view of the Red Sea, charming cafes, and a vibrant student life. The old city, Al-Balad, guarantees you a trip back in time to discover the Arab architecture. Don’t miss the famous floating mosque, preferably in the late afternoon, at high tide.
