Once an old oasis town, modern Riyadh is a flourishing cultural capital famed for its iconic modern architecture and luxury shopping.
But the old ways prevail, and traditional pastimes like haggling in the souks and camel racing are still popular with locals and visitors alike.
Visit Riyadh to get a taste of old Arabia with all the comfort and convenience of the 21st century.
If you’re travelling to Riyadh around February or March, look out for the Janadriyah Festival, an annual cultural celebration held 45km outside the city. The festival showcases Arabian crafts, dance and cuisine and kicks off with the world-renowned King’s Camel Race.
