Introducing Seattle


Situated between two large bodies of water, Lake Washington and Puget Sound, Seattle is famous for the abundance of evergreen vegetation throughout the year. Surrounded by the Cascade Mountains to the east and the Olympic Mountains to the west, Seattle has the essence of the Native American soul in every aspect of it. Known as “the Emerald City,” Seattle takes its name from the chief of the Duwamish and Suquamish tribes, Si’ahl. Besides its natural and cultural assets, it's also a commercial center and hosts a number of American brands that are widely known throughout the world.

Seattle is known for:


Entertainment and Shopping Urban Seaside Climbing Trekking Culinary Skiing Wellness
