Bin Salman announces Red Sea tourism megaproject

Resort tourism in KSA? Uh, sure — mocktails for all. Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman announced the launch of an “international tourism project…to develop exceptional resorts on more than 50 natural islands between the cities of Amlaj and Al-Jawh.” The Saudi Press Agency says the project “will be a leading coastal destination, located on a number of virgin islands in the Red Sea,” and “will contribute to a qualitative shift in the concept of tourism and hospitality” in Saudi Arabia. The first phase includes “the development of the airport, the port, the development of hotels and luxury residences, the completion of facilities and infrastructure, and transport services.” The project’s fact sheet can be accessed here.
