A huge family-oriented city, where citizens think a 400 KM ride is a short stop! Plenty of malls and light entertainment. Everybody is just friendly, but very VERY reserved and conservative.
Try out a mandi dish (meat or chicken with rice cooked underground and has that crazy good flavor, and is very fulfilling)
Petrol is dirt cheap, and so as many clothing items, even when compared to Dubai! Lingerie shops are more than men’s and most malls entertain families only, especially in the weekends.
A place worth visiting, go in a small group but prepare for a real culture shock.. so learn well about the place before you visit. enjoy.
Warning: Do not attempt to drive in Riyadh, Do not even sit in the front passenger seat!over 4 years ago
