Mintaqat ar Riyad Things to Do

  • Diplomatic Quarter

    Riyadh Things to Do

    Sahat al-Kindi (Kindi Plaza) would not, under normal circumstances, be a hotspot of anything other than the teenage boredom, angst and melancholy that is usually associated with suburban malls. This, however, is Saudi Arabia, and Sahat al-Kindi is located in the Diplomatic Quarter, where the religious police or Muttawa3 are far fewer in number than...

  • Musmak Castle

    Riyadh Things to Do

    Masmak Fort is a bit of an oddity. There is nothing wrong with its appearance, but it seems to be a particularly odd building to have preserved in a country that seems to have willfully abandoned its architectural heritage for much of its history. Masmak Fort is found in the centre of Riyadh and, while it technically does form part of the King...

  • Desert

    Riyadh Things to Do

    Located in the lowest area in Riyadh, about 25km from City Center you can find Dirab Desert . It doesnt have fine rusty color sands but the view and the mountains sorrounding it is really breath taking. The whole area was covered by mountains years back and not until the government decided to build the roads for the people to have an easy access...

  • Kingdom Tower

    Riyadh Things to Do

    Mamluka Tower (or Kingdom Tower, or Kingdom Centre), is Riyadh’s tallest building and, together with the Faisaliya Tower, is part of the duo that characterizes the Saudi capital.

  • National Museum

    Riyadh Things to Do

    Whatever, this tip isn't about the Museum per se, but it is about the area around the Museum (blame it on whoever created the categories). The Historical Complex spans a wide section of the centre of Riyadh, including part of the area around Deira Souq (Musmak Fort), but the nucleus is the National Museum of Saudi Arabia. In this area, you will...

  • Edge of the World

    Riyadh Things to Do

    The Edge of the World is a spectacular escarpment or bluff in the middle of the desert about an hour or hour and a half to the west of Riyadh. It is best to go there with someone who has been there before (and who has a reliable GPS), as getting to the spot requires knowledge of a track that is off the paved highway. You should also have a...

  • Camping

    Riyadh Things to Do

    A scene of Desert activities, Saudi people enjoying and spendingtime in the desert, i took this picture during our road trip in Easter province. You have seen a 4-wheel drive, quad bikes, having picnic, camping. Most of the time they should be done over the weekend during winter and spring season. These are the most interesting way how to spend...

  • Justice Square

    Riyadh Things to Do

    Justice Square - Maidan al-3adl in Arabic - is an innocous and unassuming place for anyone who stumbles across it. There is a small stone plaque close to the entrance to the market that announces its name, but apart from that there is no indication of the purpose of those centrally located open air. This is, indeed, the area in which public...

  • Al Faisaliah

    Riyadh Things to Do

    Faisaliya Tower is one of the two iconic towers of the city of Riyadh. It contains a variety of attractions, including a viewing platform (far less spectacular than in Mamluka Tower), a small photography gallery and a café known as the Top. The tower itself is said to have been inspired by the nib of a ball point pen, and does indeed look like...

    Dir'iyyah is the old ruined capital of the Al-Saud. Many years of meticulous restoration, begun in 1986, have recreated the outer walls and some of the major buildings, all of which are signposted. Arriving past the majestic new Dir’iyyah mosque, you turn left at the roundabout where a stunning view of the walled city’s commanding position becomes...
