If we add to this number the complaints that the Commission received on social media and other complaints that did not reach the tourism call center, then I think we are facing major dissatisfaction with the national tourism sector.

Despite the efforts by the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage to activate the tourism sector and the many initiatives launched, domestic tourism is still facing many obstacles.

Some of these obstacles include the poor services compared to the high prices charged in hotels, furnished apartments and parks. There are dangerous roads that link cities and provinces. There is an absence of good gas stations and rest areas with basic services. There is also the rising cost of public transportation, such as planes, buses and trains.
