The Red Sea is known for having the hottest and salties water on the Earth. It is one among the world’s most heavily utilised rivers, and its name comes from the colour variations in its waters. Due to the large population of algae, the sea adorns reddish brown instead of the deep blue-green colour. As varied as the scenery, the Red Sea provides a wide range of seamless, customised experiences that are authentic, enlightening, and respectful of old cultures.

4. Jeddah
