With an up and coming tourist industry, the capital of Saudi Arabia is still very much an undiscovered gem. Riyadh has only recently put itself on the map as a site of interest for those looking to top up their historical and cultural awareness of the region. However, more and more people are turning to this ancient city situated on the Arabian Peninsula as both a commercial and tourist destination. By far the city’s most popular attraction is the National Museum, due to its extraordinary depth and detail, which is easily accessible to English speakers. Spanning thousands of years, the museum illustrates the historical and cultural aspects of the region through a number of well-considered exhibitions and interactive aids. Visitors are advised to look up entrance information and opening hours before visiting to avoid disappointment. Another popular item on the itinerary is the Al Faisaliah Tower which dominates the skyline of Riyadh both day and night. Standing at a staggering height of 875 feet, the Al Faisaliah Tower is one of the tallest skyscrapers in Saudi Arabia. Spectators will notice a giant golden ball at the tip of the building which is actually a restaurant offering breath-taking views over the city. For those who prefer their feet firmly on the ground why not take a wander through the mall located on the ground level; home to numerous internationally renowned brands, as well as a bustling food court.
