Tourism in Saudi Arabia continues to grow, according to report from WTO

When people think of exotic travel destinations, one place that comes to mind is the Middle East. There, vacationers have the chance to explore a land filled with delicious food, a rich history and fascinating culture. And if you’re looking for a country that embodies everything fabulous that this region has to offer, then consider vacationing in Saudi Arabia.

Over the past few years, major cities like Jeddah and the capital, Riyadh, have played host to 10.9 million visitors in 2010, according to the World Tourism Organization (WTO). Furthermore, vacationers helped launch Saudi Arabia to the number five spot in Arab world tourism revenues.

As a result of these impressive figures, the tourism industry has been growing and will continue to do so.

Two years from now, 15.8 million visitors are predicted to visit the country and plans for more than 380,000 new hotel rooms are in the works. As if that isn’t impressive enough, that number is expected to increase to 424,000 by 2016. The end result? Tourists will have more options than ever when it comes to selecting where they want to stay in this unique country.

If you’ll be spending your time off here, you can be sure that whether you’re in Saudi Arabia for a week or a month, you’ll leave the country with memories that are sure to last a lifetime.

Of course, when you are in a foreign country where you may not speak the language, you should always make sure that you have a transportation service that understands you and cares. To make sure that happens, book a luxury limousine with Hermes Worldwide, an executive transportation service that offers experienced chauffeurs and top-notch customer service.
