SkyWatch: Saudi Tourists at Winter at Tantora

My husband isn't one for wanting to travel around in his own country to see the sights, so it's always gratifying to me when I do see other Saudis who have more of an interest is this country than my own husband does.  This past weekend I traveled to Al Ula for the first ever Winter at Tantora Festival. The highlight of each of the eight weekends of the festival is a special concert featuring world class musicians and performers from around the world.  It was the most amazing weekend trip I have ever taken.

My friend Laura of the amazing blog Blue Abaya has written a fabulous comprehensive guide and history of Madain Saleh with lots of fantastic photos - CLICK HERE to access it.

It's a really esciting time to be here, with tourism getting off its feet. Now you can come and experience it for yourself. The Winter at Tantora Festival has been extended for another two weeks, and visas are easily obtainable online in 5 minutes, from what I've been told. Come if you can!
