Known as the "Kingdom" Riyadh can be easily considered as falling on another planet - like many of our top cities. Capital of Saudi Arabia is a fascinating metropolis, a modern oasis in a hot desert, with skyscrapers tall guarding the traditional jewelry-Arab architecture. Riyadh is a Muslim city and the biggest cultural impact of that jewelry Arab limiting individual freedom, especially for women who are permanently covered with a traditional veil Abaya.
Religious police patrolling constantly muttawa in residential areas or malls, to ensure compliance with rules of conduct and dress of women. Unlike Dubai, in Riyadh and there are no bars or discos alcohol is completely banned. A reflection of times long past for most Western tourists, Riyadh must be seen to be believed!
