Occupying most of the Arabian peninsula with coastlines along the Persian Gulf, Red Sea, and Indian Ocean, Saudi Arabia is one of the most well-known Middle-Eastern countries. Saudi Arabia is one of the most important countries to the Muslim faith containing the holy cities of Mecca, or Makka, and Medina.
Many people think of Saudi Arabia as nothing but a scorching desert. From May until September, this may not be far from the truth. While nights are cool, the days can get incredibly hot, even in the shade. While the temperatures around the coastlines are cooler, these areas experience extremely high humidity, which some consider to be more oppressive than the dry heat of the nation's interior. This is a great time to take advantage of cheap hotel deals in Saudi Arabia.
