The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is thought to be an orthodox Muslim state with strict anti-feminist and conservative rules and regulations. However, I would like to break these popular stereotypical notions with this indelible claim that Saudi Arabian is the culturally rich land with the age-old incredible traditions. It would be a superb decision to explore Saudi Culture during your Halal Holidays. It is cordially welcoming land with all the gleaming stuff you wish to soothe your eyes with.

Festivals and Festivities of Saudi Arabia

The Muslim fellas must spare some quality time to experience the culture of their Prophet (SAWW)’s a place after their Hajj or Umrah. Saudi dwellers celebrate the festivals and festivities with great zeal and zest. The Saudi Govt. has significantly declared a lenient approach in dress codes and women’s rights with the amiable consent for tourism promotion.

The Saudi youth is really joyous with these amiable leniencies. If you want to see the Saudi festivities then, then plan your visit during the time of Fairs and Festivals to see the Saudi citizens putting their foot down and swaying merrily.

Saudi National Holidays

The Saudi Kingdom is a really busy nation with a few national holidays. The country’s only official holidays are the holidays of Eid Ul Fitr marking the end of Ramadan, the Holiest month, Eid ul Azha and the Unification of the Kingdom day, a lesser-known Saudi holiday.
