Acts 9:19-28: So when he had received food, he was strengthened. Then Saul spent some days with the disciples at Damascus. […] Now after many days were past, the Jews plotted to kill him. But their plot became known to Saul. And they watched the gates day and night, to kill him. Then the disciples took him by night and let him down through the wall in a large basket. And when Saul had come to Jerusalem, he tried to join the disciples; but they were all afraid of him, and did not believe that he was a disciple. But Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles. And he declared to them how he had seen the Lord on the road, and that He had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus. So he was with them at Jerusalem, coming in and going out.

Galatians 1:15-20: But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood, nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went to Arabia, and returned again to Damascus. Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and remained with him fifteen days. But I saw none of the other apostles except James, the Lord’s brother. (Now concerning the things which I write to you, indeed, before God, I do not lie.)

Acts says that after his conversion Paul went to Damascus then Jerusalem where he met all the apostles, but Galatians says that Paul went to Arabia then Damascus then Jerusalem where he met only Peter and James.

Contradictions:
1. Paul went to Damascus first != Paul went to Arabia first.
2. Paul met all the apostles != Paul met only Peter and James.
