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!
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.
