On Tuesday, the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage has announced plans for more than 120 tourist festivals across the Kingdom this summer.
The Commission explained that “the Commission is preparing a number of tourist sites and events, encouraging tourism trips through the media campaigns and marketing and supporting tourism programs and trips.”
It added that this year’s Saudi summer vacation festivals, which are being organised in cooperation with the Tourism Development Councils in the regions and the partners of the Commission, take into account the specificities of each region with different styles that are suitable for all segments of the society.
The Commission also explained that the festivals will include culture, heritage, sports, adventure, youth, environmental, entertainment, and shopping events.
It further explained that “what will be new in the summer events this year is the organisation of more events for young people, women, and children, with other attractive, useful, and diverse events in all activities, and the involvement of young people and parents in the organisation of the events.”
A large number of tours will be organised to various parts of the Kingdom. During these trips, historical sites, museums, and landmarks of cultural, economic and civil development will be visited. In addition, more tourism, adventure and exploration programs will be organised with the participation of young people.
