Destinations of Interest in Saudi Arabia
Mecca is the holiest place in the Islamic world, with millions of Muslims visiting the Grand Mosque every year during Hajj season. Medina is also an important religious destination, as the ancient city is home to the Prophet’s Mosque. Given that access to enter Mecca and the ancient core of Medina is limited, most travellers often start in Riyadh. The capital city is a place of business for many, but Murraba Palace, Masmak Fortress and the National Museum are all worth visiting. Sitting on the edges of the Red Sea, Jeddah is another prime location, and a world-class diving destination. Walk along the cornice for excellent sea views. Families should head to two great theme parks: Atallah Happy Land Park, and Al-Shalal Theme Park. Book your flight to Saudi Arabia with Cathay Pacific today.
