Tourism in Riyadh
Riyadh, the capital of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is one of the most developed cities in the area, despite its location in one of the world’s most arid regions. While on the one hand, it’s a modern metropolis and an important centre for business, on the other hand, it’s one of the strictest cities of the region with regard to religion. The city is focused on traffic and there is hardly a major avenue that doesn’t avail of crosswalks and public transportation. The skyline exhibits two characteristic buildings that are easily recognizable: Al-Faisaliah Tower and Kingdom Centre, located between the two main avenues.
One of these is King Fahd Rd, and the other is Olaya Rd. Olaya is the most commercial street, filled with luxury shops and other businesses. To the south of the city are stretches of road with a less commercial atmosphere, where one will find typical local businesses. Riyadh is characterized as a city that isn’t particularly open to tourism, where it’s difficult to find one’s way around and where there are very few maps available. But, after all, isn’t travel supposed to be an adventure?
