Mother of All Settlements

The city of Mecca boasts the statues of the holiest site in Islam, and represents the birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad and therefore the religion itself.
Explore Mecca's surroundings by going to Jeddah (Jeddah Flagpole, King Fahd's Fountain, &more). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Kaaba, take in the awesome beauty at Jabal al-Nour, and admire the landmark architecture of Abraj Al-Bait Towers.
