Al Ula

Trip Planner Middle East  /  Saudi Arabia  /  Al Ula
(160+ reviews from 3 attractions)
Historic Sites Sightseeing Nature
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. Our Saudi Arabia travel itinerary planner allows you to schedule your trip to Al Ula, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.

Where to stay in Al Ula

Al Ula has only a couple of hotels (literally), standing adjacent to two separate oases filled with palm trees and with views of rock formations. Expect mid-range prices and a decent set of amenities, including--in one case--a swimming pool. You can also set up your tent at one of the campgrounds located close to the archeological sites, or opt for the camping and glamping villages, which range from basic to luxurious.
