Saudi Arabia’s thriving capital is a must-visit. Far more accessible and friendly than we expected. The people are happy to have visitors and the government is working feverishly to develop historical sites and build infrastructure. The architecture is a highlight but the real draw, for now, is the opportunity to demystify this fascinating country.

Riyadh is the capital of Saudi Arabia. There are many historical places to visit in Riyadh. However, because of their religion there are many prohibitions. Women cannot travel without wearing an abaya or the black clothes and hair should always be covered. Also, make sure that you take with you your marriage contract because you cannot check in in any hotel without those documents.
