Published on : Saturday, January 4, 2020

As per a new research, there is an increase in tourism interest in Saudi Arabia from around the world. Majority of tourists are likely to visit Saudi Arabia for a vacation now compared to five years ago.

 

The research surveyed 9,521 people across the USA, China and five key markets in Europe, revealing a growing interest in visiting Saudi Arabia. Since the launch of the new tourism visa in September, visitors from China, the UK, Malaysia, the United States and Canada featured on the top of the list of new arrivals in Saudi Arabia.

 

Saudi’s historic sites are an important attraction for tourists visiting the Kingdom. 22% tourists are enthusiastic to visit Jeddah’s historic old town, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Another UNESCO site, previously only known to few travelers, is gaining popularity among Chinese millennials. Al Ula now tops the list destination charts in the Arab world of a third of Chinese tourists under the age of 35.

 

Italians said that they are more likely to visit Saudi Arabia following the new visa launch. Same goes for the British and American tourists.

 

Saudi Arabia takes over the presidency of the Arab League Tourism Ministers Meeting at the end of a historic year for the Kingdom. Tourism Ministers from across the Arab world met for the 22nd Annual Arab Tourism Ministers Meeting. They discussed the opportunities for regional-wide tourism offerings and unified strategies for sustainable growth of tourism sector for assisting local communities and the environment.
