City overview

With an up and coming tourist industry, the capital of Saudi Arabia is still very much an undiscovered gem. Riyadh has only recently put itself on the map as a site of interest for those looking to top up their historical and cultural awareness of the region. However, more and more people are turning to this ancient city situated on the Arabian Peninsula as both a commercial and tourist destination. By far the city’s most popular attraction is the National Museum, due to its extraordinary depth and detail, which is easily accessible to English speakers. Spanning thousands of years, the museum illustrates the historical and cultural aspects of the region through a number of well-considered exhibitions and interactive aids. Visitors are advised to look up entrance information and opening hours before visiting to avoid disappointment. Another popular item on the itinerary is the Al Faisaliah Tower which dominates the skyline of Riyadh both day and night. Standing at a staggering height of 876 ft (267 m), the Al Faisaliah Tower is one of the tallest skyscrapers in Saudi Arabia. Spectators will notice a giant golden ball at the tip of the building which is actually a restaurant offering breathtaking views over the city. For those who prefer their feet firmly on the ground why not take a wander through the mall located on the ground level; home to numerous internationally renowned brands, as well as a bustling food court.

Getting around Riyadh

Once you have arrived on your flight to Riyadh and reached your onward destination, it is simple to discover many of the city’s attractions on foot. However, if you feel that you want to venture further afield it is best to look into travelling by taxi or hiring a car since Riyadh is a city whose transport is very much dominated by cars. Although it is widely accepted that women are forbidden from driving here, this is sometimes overlooked for foreign visitors.

Getting from the Airport to the City

Flights to Riyadh arrive 21 miles (33.7 km) north of the city at the Riyadh King Khalid International Airport (RUH), which is currently only accessible by car hire or taxi. With a journey time to the city centre at around 30 minutes, it is relatively quick and simple to make your way from the airport to your onward destination. Taxis must be reserved before travel – but travellers are always advised to familiarise themselves with the typical charges beforehand to avoid potential scam artists.

What airport do you fly into for flights to Riyadh?

If you book a flight to Riyadh, you will be flying into King Khaled Intl, which is the city’s only airport. Riyadh King Khaled Intl (RUH) is located 18.7 mi from the centre of Riyadh.
