    Evening is a great time to go. The views over this bright coloured city are very interesting. The price to visit the viewing deck is worth paying.

    The place is beautiful and wonderful. It is open all days, but on Friday and Saturday there is another good route. You must go with a tour guide because there is an environmental security police in the place. You will find guides in Riyadh Tracks.

    Masmak Fortress is a true treasure of Saudi Arabia's history. Stepping inside feels like stepping back in time, as you immerse yourself in the rich heritage of Riyadh. The fortress's sturdy walls and iconic mud-brick architecture stand as a testament to the region's resilience and strength. The museum inside provides fascinating insights into the Kingdom's founding, with well-preserved artifacts and informative displays. Whether you're a history enthusiast or simply curious about Saudi Arabia's past, Masmak Fortress is a must-visit destination that leaves a lasting impression.

    The mall was decently big but I think there could be more places there. The cleanliness was amazing as anywhere in Dubai.

    I visited the mosque as part of a tour by Scientist's Gift. It was a good opportunity to learn more about Islam and to observe evening prayers. The Mesjid is really spectacular!

    A beautiful park you can enjoy with family and friends. Rides and toys are the most attraction for kids. Lovely and peaceful park at the heart of Riyadh

    Unfortunately when we reached the mall it was under renovation and many shops are still closed. We only found two shops open.

    Excellent museum, wonderfully displayed, well worth a visit. Very informative and enjoyable. Two full floors of exhibit halls. Plenty of room, well laid out, easy to follow the floor arrows so as not to miss anything, and the restrooms we’re spotlessly clean.
