    5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Al Faisalia is one of the famous shopping mall here in Riyadh. They have a huge selection of designer shops like Nike, Zara, Mango etc.

    The mall is connected to the high rise building (as shown in the photo) and it has a restaurant on top.

    The good thing about the winter sale is that, they dont go for 10-30% off from the regular price but moreso they reduced the price upto 70% off. Mind you, that those are not off season clothes but the latest designs..
