    The most spectacular road construction project of all has been the building of the Bahrain Causeway, connecting the Saudi Arabian mainland with the island of Bahrain. Building works, financed entirely by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, were completed in 1986 and the Causeway was opened to traffic at the end of that year.

    Air travel is safe. Many airlines fly into the country. I flew Lufthansa, very convenient.
    You can rent a car for a reasonable rate. Taxis are available in the cities. I do not recall seeing a good public transport system.

    to the cities of the north,there is a collective taxi from raghdan station,in amman to tabuk;

    no tourist is allowed to enter saudia,you will have like me to receive a business visa,with an invitation from a saudi company;once you crossed the border,you may go everywhere as a tourist except medina and mecca,forbidden cities to non-moslems

    Most people fly into Jeddah, Dhahran, or Riyadh, though there are also international flights to both Medina and Mecca, both of which are closed to foreigners. Otherwise, one can drive, take a bus, or use a passenger ferry from either Egypt or Jordan.
    Like the States, cars are king in the Kingdom. There are also long distance buses as well as a train, which runs between Riyadh and Dammam on the Persian Gulf Coast.
