"al 'Ola, Madaen Saleh" Saudi Arabia Favorite Tip by arabian10
Saudi Arabia General: 69 reviews and 46 photos
Favorite thing: There are believed to be more than 4000 archeological sites in Saudi Arabia, many not yet thoroughly investigated. The most famous is Mada‘in Salih, which more than 2000 years ago was an entrepôt at the southern frontier of the Nabataean realm that extended north and west to Syria. Today only the sublime sandstone tombs remain, but as both religious and commercial tourism grow, visitors can follow in the footsteps of the long-gone traders.
