Abha is located in South Western Saudi Arabia and is known as “The Tourist City”. This is mainly due to its mild climate and the abundance of parks and gardens. High above sea level in the fertile mountain region, expats moving to Abha will find the city boasts a lot to do and see. Firstly, there's the Shadda Palace, now converted into a museum, which was built around 1820. It's also worth taking a look at the village of Rijaal Almaa. The traditional houses here were built 400 and 600 years ago from local stone and they're 5 or 6 storys high. Given the promotional efforts of the Saudi Government, events are often organized in Abha to showcase sports, cultural exhibitions and musical performances. Of course, the InterNations website can help you find out all that Abha has to offer and more. Just ask our members who are also expats living in Abha.
