Saudi Arabia is the original birthplace of Islam and therefore a very spiritual destination with lots of religious charm. The country is home to the iconic Mecca and Medina, two of the most important Islamic sites which are visited by millions of Muslims each and every year. Unfortunately, these sites are not open to non-Muslims, but there are so many other wonderful jewels to explore including five World Heritage Sites.
