— 4 nights

The City of Eternal Flames, the City of Winds

A truly contemporary city criss-crossed by history, Baku offers everything from the modern elegance of the Flame Towers to the medieval UNESCO-listed Old City at its core.
When in Baku, make a side trip to see Gobustan State Reserve in Gobustan, approximately Gobustan away. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Baku Old City, examine the collection at Heydar Aliyev Center, make a trip to Bibi-Heybat Mosque, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Alley of Martyrs.

Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to Baku is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Arabian Standard Time (AST) to Azerbaijan Standard Time (AZT) is 1 hour. Traveling from Jeddah in May, things will get colder in Baku: highs are around 28°C and lows about 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 29th (Sat) to allow enough time to fly back home.

Land of Fire
A holiday in Azerbaijan allows intrepid travelers to discover a history-steeped country sitting at the crossroads of Southeastern Europe and Southwest Asia, an area once controlled by a succession of ancient empires. With its dual Eurasian character, Azerbaijan remains a highly intriguing destination, with tourism one of the top contributors to the country's booming economy. Many begin their tour of Azerbaijan in World Heritage-listed Baku, a cosmopolitan city boasting innovative architecture and a well-preserved historic core. A short drive out of this thriving capital, you can explore timeless villages surrounded by thick orchards and flanked by the majestic Caucasus Mountains.
