Location & Geography
Saudi Arabia is located in the Middle East. It occupies most of the Arabian Peninsula and is bordered by Jordan, Iraq and Kuwait in the North, Oman and Yemen in the South, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE and the Gulf in the East, and the Red Sea in the West. The topography varies from vast stretches of sand to rugged mountain ranges. The vast uninhabited zone, al-Rub’al-Khali, is the largest mass of sand in the world. A narrow chain of mountains rises in the East of the plain. The area called Asir receives some rainfall and has terraced farms and green forests. Two large oases, Qatif and Hofuf, support substantial agricultural production. The climate is dry and hot. The highest temperatures in the world are recorded in Saudi Arabia during summers. Winters are mild with little rainfall.
