Tabuk tourism ... the pleasure of exploration in "Saudi Winter"
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 27 - 01 - 2021

Tabuk is a famous holiday spot, home to some of the leading tourist attractions in Saudi Arabia. Many local tourists come from different parts of the Kingdome during the "Saudi Winter" season to have a great time amidst the glitz and glam of the city.
Tabuk is home to important heritage sites in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, most notably the "Hisma Mountains". It is a popular destination for tourists looking for an integrated vacation and enjoying the beauty of the islands there, the splendor of the beaches and their white sands, which guarantee to its visitors an enjoyable vacation full of marine activities such as diving and swimming.
The most important thing that is said about Tabuk is that it is the "gateway to the north," and the monuments it contains are a testament to the succession of civilizations, and it is called "Tabuk Al-Ward" Because it contains vast farms planted with roses, which are exported to the world.
Running eyes, palm trees, and many archaeological sites worthy of "exploration", such as the ancient Tabuk castle, abound in it. Among these sites is the Hijaz railway station, which is one of the main stations that consists of a group of old buildings, and "Ain Sugar", which is one of the oldest in Tabuk.
Tabuk, the capital city of the Tabuk region in northwestern Saudi Arabia, has long been a resting point for Jordanian and Egyptian pilgrims. Its rich culture can be felt in Souq Twaheen, famed for selling patterned rugs and goat-hair tent covers.
Visitors flock to Tabuk to explore ancient archaeological sites and the setting of the story of the prophet Moses, who lived east of the city for a decade.
Marking the start of the Saudi Coast, Tabuk's charming coastal towns, such as Haql and Sharma offer clear seas and pristine beaches. But there are more terrains to explore: Consider checking out the carved tombs of Maghaer Shuaib in the desert, or the Moses Springs near Maqna, where natural springs flow under date palms, or the stunning Tayeb Al Ism, a valley of steep granite stones separated from the turquoise-fringed Gulf of Aqaba by only the road.
Among the places that travel sites and specialized tourist blogs recommend to visit are: "Rice Lake", which is one of the tourist places near the city of Tabuk, a 20-minute drive away, and is one of the most beautiful natural attractions, surrounded by green areas that increase its beauty and attract many hikers to sit around and take a rest and clear their minds of life's concerns, away from the climates of the bustling city.
Many tourist operators are keen to place the most beautiful tourist oases on the Tabuk mountains, in the list of their tourist packages. In order to visit the "Tayyib Asim" strait, which is 314 meters above sea level. This natural oasis is only a few hours away from the city. This famous landmark overlooks the Gulf of Aqaba. The oasis is characterized by its many palm trees, reeds and fresh water springs. This made it more like a very beautiful nature reserve.
"Al Disah Valley" can be put on the list of tourist discoveries, and it is a valley characterized by its abundance of streams and palm trees. For those who love shopping, Tabuk includes many modern and popular commercial markets that are frequented by tourists to buy souvenirs, such as the "Thursday" and "Friday" markets. And there are international and local hotels to stay there, as well as restaurants famous for serving traditional and international foods. — SG
