Riyadh Guide

Guide

Riyadh, home to more than five million residents, is a high-tech city and the capital of Saudi Arabia. Riyadh is becoming a popular destination with its many interesting buildings, such as the Al Masmak Castle, the Kingdom Centre, and the Al Faisaliyah Center. Getting around this hectic city is not easy as public transport services are limited, making car rentals an attractive solution. To book car hire in Riyadh prior to travel, search and compare prices form dozens of suppliers right here, and let us find you the best deal available online.

Explore Riyadh

The center and oldest part of Riyadh is called Al Bathaa. Within the center of the old city is the Masmak Fortress, built in 1865 and recently renovated, the fortress in now a museum featuring the history of the unification of the kingdom by Abdul Aziz. To its west is the Riyadh Museum, which covers the history of the country from the Stone Age to modern days. Other sights of interest include; Al Masmak Castle, the Kingdom Centre, and the Al Faisaliyah Center.

As a modern city, Riyadh contains an abundance of attractive hotels and restaurants. However, as Saudi Arabia is a strictly Islamic state it should be remembered that drinking alcohol is strictly forbidden.

Just north of the city lies the ruins of Dir’aiyah, and the clay Fortress (pictured), which is easily accessible by car. Founded in 1446 and razed in 1818, Dir’aiyah is now a major archaeological site and a popular tourist attraction. In this ruined city you can find both reconstructed ruins of palaces, homes, and mosques.

It should be noted that due to the recent instability in the Middle East many western governments have issued travel warnings to many countries, including Saudi Arabia. Keep an eye out for any important travel warning updates.

Transport

The city has one of the largest airports in the world, King Khaled International Airport, located approximately 38km's north of Riyadh. Car rental suppliers operate from desks in the arrivals hall from leading suppliers, however, booking with us in advance will be a lot cheaper and will save you time having to book a car at the airport following your arrival. We also offer a wider selection of cars, and suppliers for you to choose from.

Tourists can travel to Dammam via railway services. There is only one bus service, Saudi Arabian Public Transport Co. (SAPTCO) operating from Riyadh to other major cities in Saudi Arabia, but not throughout the city itself.
