About Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia is perhaps one of the most well known yet one of the least traveled to countries in the world, especally for leisure. The country plays host to millions of visitors each year, mainly for Islamic rites of Hajj and Umrah, so they are used to large numbers of travelers. In fact they receive the highest number of visitors per year if we compare the country with other well known Middle Eastern destinations.

Nearly everyone to some extent, has an impression of Saudi Arabia – from their oil or as the birthplace of Islam. Surprisingly and in a very short time (from 2018), the country began reinvesting in its tourist attractions, allowing foreigners the opportunity to experience many historical sites that are comparable to its neighboring countries. This includes sites such as Al Ula which has a similar size to the Jordan valley, the old town in Jeddah which was and continues to be the hub for many traders, and the Hajj pilgrimage that is used as the base for Makkah.
The impressive palm oasis in the eastern province, the untouched virgin coastlines in the Red Sea as breathtaking as the ones found next-door in Egypt. Saudi Arabia also has valleys, landscapes and mountains in the north and south with its seasonal waterfalls and snow. Yes there is actually snow in the north showing the star contrasts between the country’s different regions, offering authentic experiences to travelers who are interested in nature, culture, and history.

Saudi Arabia offers a wide range of activities, from touring UNESCO World Heritage sites to exploring the 2,640 kilometers of coastline, and sifting through the vast desert landscapes, such as the appropriately named, Empty Quarter. Traveling for leisure through this country will produce amazing stories to recount to your friends and family.

Did you know this fact?

Bahrain boasts the ancient Dilmun civilization, dating back to around 3,000 BCE, making it one of the oldest civilizations in the Middle East. Dilmun was a prosperous trading hub, renowned for its maritime trade routes and the abundance of natural resources. Excavations have revealed intricate burial mounds, sophisticated pottery, and evidence of a sophisticated society with connections to Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley.

About Bahrain

Bahrain is an Arabic word meaning “Two Seas” and refers to the two sources of water surrounding the islands, fresh water springs and the surrounding seas. Bahrain is an archipelago of 33 small islands and enjoys a strategic location in the Arabian Gulf midway between the Qatar peninsula and Saudi Arabia. It is connected to Saudi Arabia by a 25km causeway. Bahrain is divided into five governates: Capital, Central, Muharraq, Northern and Southern.

Apart from its booming financial services sector, Bahrain main products are aluminum, crude and refined oil, petrochemicals and gas. Around 5000 years ago Bahrain was home to the Bronze Age civilization of Dilmun, which lasted some two millennia. Dilmun was an important trade and commerce center, connecting business between Arabia and India, a tradition Bahrain still holds as a financial hub of the Middle East.
Since then, Bahrain has been occupied alternately by Babylonians, Sumerians, Greeks, Persians, Portuguese, and Turks, among others. The Greeks knew the island as Tylos and in the early Islamic era, the island was known as Awal. Qal’at al Bahrain (Bahrain Fort), an ancient harbor and capital of Dilmun, is featured on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Numerous other sites such as A’ali Tumuli Mound field, Barbar Temple, Saar Heritage Park, Arad Fort and Hawar Islands reserve are also being considered for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

Bahrain’s long and rich history has left its mark wherever one looks on the island. The Bahrain Fort speaks to its colonial past, the Dilmun Burial Grounds give us a glimpse of prehistoric times, while the Oil Museum is a testament to recent development.
