Yes, it’s finally time to continue our very own and special Saudi Arabia itinerary for you!
Are you ready?
RIYADH (3 NIGHTS)
A flight from Al Ula to Riyadh takes approximately 2.5 hours, you can also choose to travel by car. Welcome to the capital of Saudi Arabia – Riyadh, the most modern region that represents a hub for commerce, culture, and transport. There’s plenty to shop and sightsee, thus we recommend spending 3 nights.
Kingdom Centre – Day 6
No photo or postcard of Riyadh does not showcase the Kingdom Centre which stands above the other skyscrapers in the city. This landmark tower is 302m high, has a sleek design, and boasts constantly changing lights at night. There’s a bridge connecting both tips at the very top, built mainly of steel and glass. Take a high-speed lift ride to the 99th floor for a spectacular view of the city.
Globe Experience – Day 6
For an even more luxurious experience, get a sweeping, first class view of the city from the Globe’s 655 glass panels. If you’re feeling fancy and want to dine in style with a killer view, this is for you. The Globe was designed by British architect Norman Foster, built in 2000 by Saudi Bin Laden construction company, it is still one of Riyadh’s major skyscrapers today.
Rest Day – Day 7
Wadi Namar Waterfall – Day 8
Wadi Namar is located southward from Riyadh, it has a combination of a gorgeous lake and a stunning waterfall. Depending on your mood, if you want a tranquil and more relaxed atmosphere, you can park at the lake, otherwise the waterfalls await you. It’s a great place to bring the family for a stroll, a picnic or a simple workout.
Riyadh Public Transport Visitor Centre – Day 8
The streets of Riyadh see over 9 million car trips a day, raising congestion and pollution issues. The Riyadh Public Transport Visitor Centre discusses the country’s grand plans for public transportation. Plans for Metro have increased from just 2 lines to 6, and a fully integrated citywide bus too. Explore what are the significant plans in technology, construction, and public engagement.
Masmak Fortress – Day 8
From a distance, this renovated 19-century fortress looks like a giant sandcastle. This museum is a depiction of how Saudi Arabia became a powerful force in the world. The displays are not extravagant or commercial but have a certain authenticity about them. Plenty to shop from shops selling electronics, carpets, souvenirs, and a variety of cafés to choose from. The fortress is over 150 years old to date.
Ushaiger Heritage Village – Day 9
On your stop before heading home, we suggest dropping by this ancient village. Divided into different districts, you’ll find yourself probably in the Al Salem museum that features artefacts by the villagers themselves, clothing, jewellery, ceramics and more. Some of the houses are empty, feel free to explore and soak in the local lifestyle. There’s a stall or two for food within the area if you need a food stop. Lastly, Ushaiger is home to an unbelievable golden sunset, just a drive-up a nearby mountain.
