What time of the year is the best for visiting the Holy city of Makkah?
You could say that the best time to visit Makkah is the time that suits you, your family and your lifestyle. If you are not travelling for the Hajj
season, then you have the freedom in choosing the day of your travelling. Visiting Makkah in KSA is a lifetime journey which requires dedication and energy to accomplish one of the most important tasks in our lives which is Umrah.
This journey will give you the time for spiritual revival as you explore the holy sites while you stay closer to the Kabbah.
If your travelling dates are open or you have the choice of selecting suitable seasons or months, you may want to consider the weather and the active Umrah periods. This will help you explore Makkah with a better atmosphere avoiding the high prices of the hotels. If you are planning carefully, you can manage to save more money while exploring popular historical sites, the traditional Saudi food and booking the best hotels.
The winter months are preferred by many Makkah visitors since they allow them to explore the Holy City. If you’re concerned about the summers and can not handle the heat, then winter travel is definitely the ideal travelling time for you which is between November through February, you can enjoy cooler temperatures which makes performing Umrah much more enjoyable.
