Riyadh view Kingdom Center - Saudi Arabia

    Newer Older

    I tought Riyadh was like Dubai: full of skyscrapers. In fact, there are 2 huge buildings in town. This one looks like an bottle-opener for a beer you'll never drink in KSA!
    Kingdom Centre,Riyadh
    The place to see and be seen in central Riyadh is at the Kingdom Centre, the tallest building in Saudi Arabia, owned by Al-Walid prince . Besides containing modern offices, apartments, the Four Seasons Hotel and a fitness club, the Kingdom Centre also houses a state-of-the art three-level shopping mall with more than 160 stores, anchored by Saks Fifth Avenue and Debenhams department stores. The centre also bristles with dozens of first class international restaurants.

      Amazing perspective, and how contrasting the skyscraper looks compared to it's surroundings.
