Medina

(4.6/5 based on 2,800+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: religious sites, nature, sightseeing

Radiant City

Most tourism in Medina, the second-holiest city in Islam, comes from pilgrims who visit as part of the Hajj, an annual traditional journey that ends in Mecca. As an important sacred destination, Medina attracts a largely Muslim contingent, with non-Muslim visitors not allowed in the city center (trying to enter without a pilgrim visa will result in deportation from the country). The most famous sight in Medina is undoubtedly the Grand Mosque, the final resting place of the Prophet Muhammad, while a plethora of markets, shopping malls, and restaurants line the city streets. In the build up to your vacation in Medina, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Saudi Arabia vacation route planner.

Where to stay in Medina

As a crucial pilgrimage destination and one of the holiest places in Islam, Medina offers a huge variety of accommodations, though non-Muslim visitors should note that most lodgings cluster in the city center, accessible to Muslims only. Visitors can choose from a wide range of lodgings, from low-cost inns with basic facilities to grandiose five-star hotels. Generally centrally located, the hotels generally get pricier the nearer they are to the Grand Mosque. Non-muslims have the option of staying at the hotel near the airport, outside of the forbidden zone.
