Located at the heart of the Arabian Peninsula, the Qassim region is an agricultural hub, where the climate is ideal for growing dates, lemons and oranges. Buraydah, its capital, is considered the most conservative city in the kingdom, while Onaizah – the oldest town in the province – is home to farms and orchards.

Qassim highlights

Whether you want to feast on sweet dates or shop in a 14th-century souq, Qassim is a fertile and festive destination worthy of your attention.

  • Tourist attractions

    On your trip to Qassim, you will find many of the region's popular tourist attractions in Buraydah, the capital city. The Museum of Buraydah has some notable artefacts, including the car once owned by King Abdul-Aziz Bin Abdul-Rahman Al-Saud, founder of Saudi Arabia. The Buraydah Water Tower is one of the city's main attractions. During summer, visitors can go to the observation platform for spectacular views of the city.

    The traditional town of Mehtnab is well worth a visit. Here you will find Majlis Market with its beautiful ancient architecture. The market and the Qasr Bahilah Mosque are the town centre’s most prominent landmarks.

    While you’re in Qassim, don’t forget to include Onaizah in your itinerary. In summer, the city hosts various events, including a falcon show, sports competitions and a cultural fair. Saunter around Al-Musawkaf Market, which has a history dating back to 1394. Not only is this one of the most important traditional marketplaces in Qassim, it was also named the best tourism attraction in Saudi Arabia in 2010. Adjacent to the market is a museum, where you can purchase some local handicrafts as the perfect souvenirs.

  • Leisure activities

    If you're travelling with your family, King Khalid Park and Gardens in Buraydah is the ideal destination to relax or have a picnic. Gulf Park entertainment complex is also a popular spot, with its swimming pool and arcades. If you want to see local artisans in action, visit the Buraydah Handicraft Centre.

    Onaizah hosts Dream Land, the largest theme park in Qassim, featuring rides and entertainment attractions for all ages. Travel to Qassim during the summer and spend a relaxing day just strolling around the city's markets.

  • Food

    Travel to Qassim and you'll find that its culinary offerings have international appeal. Traditional Saudi Arabian fare is plentiful, but so are specialities from Indian, Chinese and Italian cuisines. For authentic eastern food, King Fahad Street in Buraydah has a selection of high-quality restaurants, offering an array of dishes at a reasonable price.

    Some of the finest restaurants in Onaizah can be found along Ash Shabili, but fast-food options are also available. For lunch on-the-go, try a Saudi Arabian fast food restaurant, with a different take on American burgers and fries?

  • Shopping

    Onaizah has embraced the modern shopping-mall culture. Onaizah Mall, which opened in 2009, is the place to find international brands, as well as restaurants and cafés. City Plaza is also a good place to source global brands, at more affordable prices.

    To experience Saudi Arabia’s souqs, head to Al-Musawkaf Market, which is renowned for its authentic souvenirs and handicrafts made by local craftspeople.

    On your trip to Qassim, you must visit the Qassim Dates Market in Buraydah, especially if you're in the region between August and September, the harvest season. Here you can sample some sweet fresh dates and buy a range of date confectionery.

    It's also worth travelling to the outskirts of Buraydah, where the world's largest camel market is located. As well as camels, you'll find an assortment of leather goods for sale, such as saddles, bridles, and woolen blankets. Just make sure you get there early as the market opens at 6am every day, but usually closes by 10am.
