Historically based on a strategic location along the incense route, Al Ula has one of the largest archeological sites in Saudi Arabia. Tours of Al Ula usually involve a visit to ghost towns in the middle of the desert made of stone and mud. Explore narrow alleys and watchtowers and imagine the past splendor of these once bustling cities, some of them over 2,000 years old. Enjoy the view of snow-capped mountains from a palm-fringed oasis, and explore limestone gorges of dried-up rivers lined with vegetation. In addition to ancient ruins displaying classical Arab architecture, you can see the restored German-built Ottoman Hejaz Railway, blown up by Arab saboteurs guided by Lawrence of Arabia in an early imperial bid for Middle East oil resources. Al Ula is in Saudi Arabia. In the build up to your vacation in Al Ula, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Saudi Arabia day trip website.
