Flights to Riyadh

Once an isolated mud-brick town along desert trading routes, Riyadh is now one of the wealthiest cities in the world. As flights to Riyadh come in, skyscrapers such as Al Faisaliah Tower can be seen rising up from the dusty desert while shiny 4x4s cruise the city’s highways in one of the kingdom’s premier destinations for business tourism.

Saudi Arabia’s capital city is much more than a vibrant business destination, however. It’s a glittering oasis where Arab traditions meet western culture, and it's packed with enough restaurants, hotels, history, and culture to rival any other capital in the Gulf.

Located in the middle of the country, Riyadh is the beating heart of Saudi Arabia. Take a short drive from the city center in almost any direction, and you’ll see evidence of its unique Middle Eastern heritage, harking back to Bedouin life in the desert. Try the famous camel souk on Dammam Road, just east of the city, or journey by car to the Edge of the World, a stunning Tuwaiq escarpment.

If you’re craving some relief from the heat, head to the Lake Kharrarah Park and Hifna Waterfall on the outskirts. This national park floods during rainfall, creating a lake deep enough to swim in, and it’s a popular picnic spot on hot afternoons.

Sports are incredibly popular in Riyadh; the city buzzes on match days as up to 70,000 soccer fans make their way to the King Fahd International Stadium. If shopping is more your thing, you’ll find streets lined with malls, many exclusively for women, offering the best in local and imported jewelry, clothing, and food.

What to do in Riyadh

Tee off at Arizona Golf Resort

During the cooler months of winter and spring, there’s nothing quite like hitting the golf course to soak up some sunshine while keeping fit. Arizona Golf Resort has enough facilities to keep the whole family happy, including gorgeous outdoor pools, various sports courts, and a petting zoo.

Explore Masmak Fortress

This impressive structure made of clay and mud-brick dates back to the mid-1800s. It was renovated in the 1980s, with lots of care taken to preserve its historical features. Look closely at the doorway and you can still see the traces of weapons used to attack the fort, including a spearhead that’s more than a century old.

Visit the Edge of the World

This is a hugely popular hike in Riyadh, and no wonder: the dramatic landscape of rugged, towering cliffs needs to be seen to be believed. You’ll need a 4x4 to make the journey, and be sure to pack plenty of food and water. It’s best to go in a group.
