Buraydah city is commonly referred to as ‘the vegetable basket of Saudi Arabia’, due to its large range of agricultural products, including dates, lemons and oranges. Despite the city’s endeavour for modernisation, there are still a few of its traditional Najdi mud-brick houses scattered around. One of the city’s most prominent attractions is the camel market, which happens to be the world’s largest. The market begins at six am every morning and is filled with indescribable vibe. Buraydah hotels range from budget to luxurious.
The birth of Muhammad is celebrated at the Milad al-Nabi festival, an event which generally sees religious processions, ceremonies, and feasts accompanied by festive decorations and a jovial but reserved atmosphere.
