Very beautiful place which will give you an idea how people in the past was thinking about eternal life by creating this large cemeteries. I advise everyone is thinking to visit this place to go in the winter because the weather there is more beautiful.
I actually visited in 2009 with my famil and a friend and his family. No doubt, it is a great historical place and one really gets impressed by the architecture of Nabateans. The only issue is that KSA Government is not promoting these heritage sites....More
A must visit place while you are in Saudi Arabia. We actually visited the place back in Nov. 2016, but just got the chance to write a review now.
The site is currently closed for development purposes with undecided date of reopening, so we were...More

The opportunity to be able to travel to Saudi Arabia is certainly not like a trip to other parts of the world. The process for getting tourist visas, a long journey from the USA, guides, etc...this is not a journey like going to the Grand...More
Mada'in Saleh is truly amazing. The site is the Southern-most (known) city of the Nabataean people and complements the Northern site of Petra. As I understand it, some of the most significant findings of the Nabataeans come from the site in Saudi Arabia because the...More

The Nabatean ruins of Mada’in Saleh are amazing. There are no big crowds. It is truly a personalized experience. Every tomb is so beautiful and well preserved. The whole site is simply breathtaking. I would definitely recommend the visit to anyone traveling through Saudi Arabia.

The people of Al Ula are very kind, friendly, and open to diversity. I am an American woman and had no problem visiting the sites. I would definitely recommend a package with a private tour to get the full experience. The hardest part about traveling to Saudi Arabia is getting the visa for travel. Also I think tourism is not open right now for all countries. I have been to a lot of parts of Saudi Arabia and found that the people are more welcoming and friendly than even some parts of America.
