واصفات البياناتعرض سجل المادة الكامل
Tourism activities in Saudi Arabia are centered on the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah, the western part of the kingdom. The hospitality market for both cities is closely related as pilgrims perform Hajj or Umrah in Makkah and then travel to Madinah to visit Al Masjid An Nabawi (the Prophet’s Mosque) Religious tourism should flourish as the Kingdom completes expansion of the Holy mosques while the fear from MERS virus is well behind us. Colliers expects visitors to Makkah and Madinah to reach ~25mn by 2025 from just over 17.5mn in 2014. To meet this growing demand, the government is investing considerably in developing the infrastructure, mainly related to transport, such as the High Speed rail and Metro projects in Makkah, as well as the expansion of the Prince Mohammed Bin Abdulaziz Airport in Madinah.
