Riyadh Information

While both Jeddah and Riyadh are Saudi Arabian cities, the two are very different in atmosphere and appearance. After coming from the lively resort of Jeddah with its attractions and seafront promenade, inland Riyadh, mainly a business destination, may seem stark and conservative. However, exploration of this city can introduce you to some hidden gems. The National Museum is a very fine one, providing an informative introduction to Arabian history, art, and culture, while the Masmak Fortress is an impressive historical site. There is good shopping and fine dining in the city with many malls, including the Sky Shopping Mall at the Al Faisaliyah Tower, an impressive tower with a viewing platform giving panoramic views over the city. For fun, you could visit Riyadh Zoo or the World Sights Park with its miniature replicas of famous buildings such as the Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal. To escape the urban sprawl, head to Wadi Namar with its lake, green spaces and rocky hills.
