Laura Alho, the Finnish founder of Blue Abaya, a travel blog based in Riyadh, has been sharing her favorite places she visited in 2018 and there are a bunch of great travel inspo and tops for all of us in the list.
And if you are looking for an affordable but adventure-packed trip, don’t look too far
Jizan ranks third on her list and, honestly, it makes complete sense why.
Alho explained that she went hiking in its waids (valleys) and simply could not get enough of it’s beauty.

Continuing (better late than never right) the 2018 Top Places I visited..at #3/5 Jizan, Saudi Arabia. . . It’s been a long time dream to explore the area more and what a wonderful weekend we had with friends hiking the wadi spent in absolute awe of the nature there. The most used word of the day must have been WOW. The best part was climbing up the ladders taking up a giant rock, bird songs echoing inside the canyon, sound of water dripping down the cliffs, a hidden waterfall and cooling pools to swim in. ???????????????????????? . . . #explorearabia #jizan #sauditourism #shotoniphone #canyoning #hiking #adventure #naturelover #sustainabletravel #adventuressarabia #visitsaudi #jazan #wadilajab #sheisnotlost #adventuretime
She mentioned that there is also a hidden waterfall and several cooling pools in the region that very few people know about.
