Saudi Arabia has more to it than people see.
As tourist visas are on their way to the kingdom, with category D travel agencies reportedly able to issue them, more people will now get to explore the country.
Here are a few activity ideas for locals, expats, and soon enough, tourists:
1. Sunset Beach Resort
Sunset Beach Resort is one of the most beautiful and diverse beaches one could see in the Arab region.
Located in Al Khobar, the resort offers a wide variety of activities, such as spas, water parks, and water sports center.
2. Women’s only fashion exhibition
Many fashion exhibitions and beauty fairs take place around the kingdom, a perfect opportunity to follow up on the latest trends.
3. Renting beach buggies in Al Aziziyah
The best time to ride beach buggies would be December till mid-February, as the weather would be the coolest during that time of the year.
Rent a few and go on an expedition with some friends.
4. Climbing sand dunes
You can climb the pure golden, wind-blown sand along with your friends, then roll down the dunes for a picnic and some refreshments.
5. Visit Scitech
Scitech is a state of the art science center located near corniche Al Khobar with over 350 exhibits.
Many scientific theories are implemented in form of simple experiments that engage visitors along with a variety of interactive documentaries.
6. Lunch dates
In Saudi Arabia, there is a wide variety of local and international restaurants as well as fast food courts to suit all tastes.
Perhaps one of the most well-known local Saudi restaurants is Al-Baik, which started out in the mid-70s in Jeddah, and has now spread to 64 branches across the kingdom.
