This city is far more a lot very better than Jeddah. It looks more organised of everything. However, traffic is terrible the drivers drove like barbarian with no laws.
There is nothing much to do or see in Riyadh. Nothing special about the malls in this city. Just visit the National Museum, Almasmak Palace and Riyadh Zoo.
There is nothing I find appealing in Riyadh. But since most government entities are based there, so are business and expos/events/seminars/jobs .
.. etc (ie business centric stuff). You can go to Jeddah (West coast) or Khobar (East coast) for the same experience with friendlier people.
this is the last frontier for men in the world. Riyadh is modern, impressive, large and has the best food you can eat in one close area.
Driving is tricky and could be dangerous as the traffic police in Saudi Arabia simply do not want to work. Ungrateful Westerners are plentiful taking advantage of the booming economy and preferred treatment they receive which they could not dream of in their own economically challenged countries. It is a safe city and the standard of living is higher than the rest of the country.
THE WETHER IS GOOD AT SPRING AND WINTER BUT YOU WILL FIND IT VERY HOT AT SUMMER SEASON THE TEMPRETURE WILL BE AROUND 40 DEGREE.
Overall I came for business and not use to the hour difference. But I enjoy it very much as it is something totally new
There is really no reason to visit Riyadh apart from business. There is very little in the way of entertainment.
Restaurants are expensive and generally lower quality than elsewhere in the Region.
It's very hot during summers. Kingdom tower is worth visiting. Have alot of malls and indoor activity centers.
Lacks outdoor activity because of the heat. Usually everything closes down by 11pm compared to Jeddah which is mostly ipen by 1am.
A typical metropolitan city. Should not miss the Kingdom tower, the Musmak fortress and the National Museum.
its big city but its very crawdy , you will spend have of the day to reach your distination alot of cars
such a nice place to visit. My kids really enjoyed their time there, especially when they visited the Zoo.
