Beautiful Riyadh

Riyadh is the capital city of Saudi Arabia, located pretty much in the center of the country.  The desert city is laid out in a very spacious design, stretching for miles and miles in each direction.  Riyadh is a financial hub of the region and sports magnificent office buildings with unique architecture.  The population of Riyadh is over five million.  It is considered to be more conservative than Jeddah.

Kingdom Tower is the 3rd tallest building in Riyadh. The complex houses, among other things, a shopping mall, offices, a Four Seasons Luxury Hotel, restaurants, and a skybridge with amazing panoramic views of the city.

A big "Thanks" to my friend and amazing photographer Abdullah Yahya for allowing me to share these beautiful photos for today's post.  Stay tuned for more fantastic pics from around Saudi Arabia taken by Abdullah.  Follow him on Twitter @ayaa1977
