Fly to Hail
Located in northwest Saudi Arabia, Hail is best known as the camel route to Hajj. Its geographical location, which places it in the shadows of the Samra Mountains, also means that the agriculture blossoms here adding to the attractions and food offerings for locals and tourists.
Ha’il Saudi Arabia sits at the base of the Samra Mountain. During the day take a drive to the top and admire the Arabian city below and at night marvel at the fire, which is lit at the summit. Other sights to see in this city are the 200-year-old Airif Fort and the Qishlah Fortress, which houses a military exhibition. The Ha’il Museum is also a must. Here you can obtain a permit to visit the nearby petroglyphs (rock engravings).
