Saudi Arabia is a traditional place on the verge of modernism. The richest country in the Arab world is known for much more than the amount of oil it exports. The locals value their centuries-long traditions, the etiquette and customs. A hub of cultural ethos, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a one-of-a-kind destination. Multiple cultural backgrounds build up a mish-mash of colours, perceptions and religious beliefs.
Historically, it is popular as an ancient trade centre. The country landscape is stunning. Mountain peaks can be seen in specific places, while the vast majority of the terrain is entirely taken up by desert sands. Shaped by the Islamic heritage and Bedouin traditions, Saudi Arabia is a country that respects the ways of the past. Traditions are taken seriously and passed on from one generation to the next. As a religious hotspot, Mecca has been attracting nomads and believers from all parts of the world, but it is the lifestyle of the locals and the unique culture that charm travel journalists, movie makers and writers to stay longer. Explore the diversity of Saudi Arabia through our photo and city guides designed to bring you a virtual piece of the country and inspire you to get to know the place in a conscious and respectful way.
