Situated in the heart of the Middle East, Saudi Arabia covers a staggering 80% of the Arabian Peninsula. This mysterious kingdom is undoubtedly the largest country in the Middle East, spanning approximately 2.15 million square kilometers in size. 95% of the country is a desert as Saudi Arabia is home to the largest sand desert in the world, which makes this a wonderful place to go camel riding over the dunes or spend a night camping under the stars.

The Saudi National Museum is the perfect place to uncover centuries of Arabian history and culture in Riyadh, The Floating Mosque of Al Rahma is a must-see architectural wonder in Jeddah, and King Fahd’s Fountain, sprouting from the Red Sea, dominates the skyline as over 500 LED lights bring the fountain to life at night.More +
