The old town of Al Ula is both historical and biblical.
In Biblical Times, Al Ula was called as Dedan. It is mentioned in Isaiah 21:13 as a home trade base of Arab caravans. Today, the old town of Al Ula is a ghost town. No one lives there anymore but there’s a new town that is settled not far from the old.
You should go camping – an experience you won’t forget. We stayed both in Sahary Al Ola Camp and Madakhil Camp. If one is full, we choose the other. If camping in the desert is not your thing, you can always stay at Al Ula Arac Hotel in downtown.
