From souk to skyscraper

Riyadh is a modern city steeped in history.

Visit Souq-al-Zal, the city’s largest and oldest antique market, for souvenirs. Prefer air-conditioned shopping? Visit Kingdom Centre! Shaped like a bottle-opener, this striking building has 99 storeys. Ride the elevator to the Sky Bridge, at 300 metres high it provides unrivalled views of the city.

Vast desert and tropical islands

Nature in Saudi Arabia is beautiful. At a ninety-minute drive from Riyadh you’ll find Jebel Fihrayn, dubbed ‘The Edge of the World’. Climb the rock plateau for an unparalleled 360-degree panoramic view over the desert. If you prefer the beach, set off for Umluj for pearly-white sand beaches by a turquoise sea. Sail to one of the dozens of islands and dive to see colourful coral and extraordinary fish. These islands are called the Saudi Maldives for good reason!
