Riyadh, Saudi Arabia


Welcome to Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia constitutes about four-fifths of the Arabian Peninsula in Southwest Asia, and it is the third-largest country in Asia, after China and India. The country lies at the heart of the Arab and Muslim World. In under a century, Saudi Arabia has been transformed from a desert peninsula with few desert habitations to an advanced state that is one of the world's leading economies, with a cosmopolitan population residing in bustling, modern  cities. Despite the massive advancements in technology and infrastructure, the people of Saudi Arabia have proudly preserved their religion, culture and heritage. We feel honoured to welcome you to Saudi Arabia.

Welcome to Riyadh

Riyadh, a sprawling metropolis of over 6 millions Saudi nationals  and expatriate residents, is the capital city of Saudi Arabia and its largest city. Riyadh is strongly linked to the history of modern Saudi Arabia, with Dir'iyah, the ancestral home of the royal family, lying at the Western edge of the city. 

January is generally the coolest month of the year for Riyadh with cool weather in the daytime with highs of around 20o Celsius. Nights can get quite cool with lows of around 8o  Celsius, though cool desert winds can accentuate the cold.
