Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia is the largest country in the Arabian Peninsula. It shares borders with Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE, Oman and Yemen.

The economy is petroleum-based and roughly 75% of revenues and 90% of export earnings come from the oil industry.

Riyadh, the capital is a very modern city. From a population of just 40,000 in the 1930s, it has experienced rapid growth and is the largest city in the country.

Mecca and Medina, the holy cities in the west of the country, are forbidden to non-Muslims. Jeddah, on the Red Sea, has managed to retain much of its history despite the growth of modern buildings to satisfy its position as the country’s leading commercial city.
