Saudi Arabia to launch Red Sea tourism resorts

Saudi Arabia to launch Red Sea tourism resorts

On Monday, Saudi Arabia announced that it is planning to build a tourist destination along the Red Sea, which will apparently accommodate a diverse audience as the country's strict conservative customs will most likely be waived on the 50 islands.

The project is being undertaken by the sovereign wealth fund the Crown Prince chairs, the Public Investment Fund (PIF), and is part of a new "qualitative" focus on tourism and hospitality as part of the Vision 2030 reforms.

The project will be built in one of the world's most handsome and diverse natural spots, in cooperation with the world's largest hotel companies to develop exceptional resorts, it said.

Foundations will be laid in the third quarter of 2019 with the first phase completed in the final quarter of 2022.

The Mount is considered the holiest place in Judaism, where the two ancient Temples once stood, and the third holiest in Islam. According to the organization Students for the Temple Mount, this is a "historical record".

"The PIF will inject initial investments into this project and open partnerships with leading global companies, which will bring new and direct investments to the Kingdom while seeking to attract and redirect Saudi tourism expenses into the kingdom".

Saudi Arabia has unveiled a bold plan to build a huge tourist destination on the Red Sea. One of the major aspects of Vision 2030 is developing the kingdom's tourism industry- both Muslim and non-Muslim attractions.

The area is characterised by its year-round temperate climate, with average summer temperatures reaching up to 31°C.

It also boasts dormant volcanoes, the most recently active of which has a recorded history of activity dating back to the 17th century AD.
