3 Reasons why you’ll fall in love with Saudi Arabia:
1. Saudi Arabia is set to open a plethora of luxurious new hotels
In an effort to become a more tourist-friendly travel destination Saudi Arabia has plans to open up luxury beach resorts in the northwest of the country, where Saudi Arabia meets the Red Sea.
Better yet, these luxury resorts have special exemptions put in place, to ensure that tourists can enjoy lounging by their resorts pools and engaging in a wide variety of water sports, without having to cover up and adhere to the country’s clothing laws. So if you thought that wearing swimming trunks, a one-piece or a bikini in Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea was impossible think again.
As an added benefit as Saudi Arabia’s new luxury resorts will be built in the remote northwest, you’ll be able to enjoy a private, tranquil vacation experience away from the hustle and bustle of Saudi Arabia’s fast-paced cities.

If you love being one of the first tourists to explore a region that was previously off-limits to tourists, you’ll have the time of your life on a day tour of the Arabian Desert.

Alternatively, if you like the idea of seeing the sunrise over a large sand dune, it’s well worth booking a sunrise tour of the Arabian Desert.
