Al Ula Town is your gateway to Mada'in Saleh, one of Saudi Arabia's UNESCO world heritage site. Before coming to Al Ula you need to make advanced arrangements for accommodation and transportation because we found no taxi at the airport, or even when we reached the town center.
Although we booked rooms at Al Ula Arac Resort we did not request for airport pick up but the guy at the airport was kind enough to give us a lift to our hotel after his duty. We rented a car from the only rent-a-car shop and had no choice but to drive the only car even if the horn is not working. Al Ula Town has lots of potential as a tourist destination but the government should improve tourism infrastructure to attract more visitors.
