First, I would like to highlight the warm welcome offered by the Saudi people during my whole trip. It was a unique experience to visit this country and discover the Saudi culture. There are many similarities with others capitals in the Gulf countries. The city is famous by some landmarks as Al Faisaliah Tower, which possess one of the amazing view, from the restaurant at the top. There is also an observation deck outside. Another landmark, curious as well, is the Kingdom Tower. His skybridge in high floor shows an awesome view, specially at the sunset time. Otherwise, the city is quiet and it is easy to cross the city by the King Fahd Road from the South to the North. Culturally speaking, I recommend two places to visit easily. The first one is the Diriyah museum, just opened, located not so far of the KAFD. This museum is amazing and the staff is very welcoming and helpful. The second one is the Qasr Al Hokm located in the South of the city. Nearby, you will can find a Souq with many sellers.
