Al Ula - Arabian Icon - CDP Theme Day

We were just wrapping up a photo shoot outside the beautiful mirrored concert hall called Maraya in Al Ula when a large trailer and SUV pulled up, bringing photographers and this gorgeous white Arabian horse.  The day had started with not one, but TWO helicopter rides over the striking and exceptional terrain of Al Ula and Madein Saleh. We had thought the day just couldn't have gotten any better than that.  And then this magnificent horse and rider showed up!

It was indeed a very special ending to our magical weekend in Al Ula. The Winter at Tantora Festival and the wonders of it all never ceased to amaze me beyond my wildest dreams. And now the festival has been extended for two more weekends through Feb. 23rd.  Saudi Arabia has jumped right in to the tourism arena by offering this unforgettable experience, rich in history and incredible awe inspiring marvels.  Don't miss out!  Find out more and book your tickets today HERE - #WinterAtTantora
