Farms and Orchards

The Al-Qassim region is perhaps the lushest part of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, responsible for much of the country's agriculture. The area around Buraidah is rich in farms, orchards and palm trees that are free for tourists to visit and admire. You can also buy produce directly from the farmers.

Do & See

The Al-Qassim region is quite unique in Saudi Arabia for green areas and agricultural prowess. The areas around Buraidah and Unaizah have some fascinating places to visit. Explore farms, orchards, palm tree plantations and the world's largest camel market. But the cities and towns themselves also offer travellers plenty of museums, parks and interesting sights, as well as heaps of entertainment in the form of excellent eating and shopping.
