Best places to see in Saudi Arabia

Old Bazaar
Shopping areas
Looking for a souvenir? Old Bazaar’s the place to come. "Itur” perfume and roasted falafel send a sweet scent wafting through this busy old market. A hodgepodge of Madinah miscellanea is on offer – pointy slippers, locally farmed dates, stuffed falcons, themed prayer mats and alarm clocks that sound “azan” (call to prayer). Time to sharpen your haggling skills!
Accommodation near Old Bazaar
Kingdom Center
Landmarks
Kingdom come. And Kingdom dominate skyline. This tower is a colossal bottle-opener-shaped construction of glass and metal. It soars above the city in a sea of skyscrapers. The rounded carapace is instantly identifiable in the cityscape. Inside, you’ll find a shopping centre and a hotel, yet the main event is the views from the sky-high “skybridge” viewing platform.
Accommodation near Kingdom Center
Floating Mosque
Landmarks
The Floating Mosque’s magnificence can’t be overstated. As the name suggests, it appears to hover silently above the sea. Here, modern Arabic architecture blends with ancient Islamic design. The beauty of the snow-white building and its glowing, turquoise dome create an enchanting, magical effect on the onlooker. Inside, the sacredness is palpable and the desire to meditate is unshakable.

Souq Al Alawi
Shopping areas
Enjoy a pleasant descent into chaos. Souq Al Alawi is the oldest and most traditional souq in Saudi Arabia. This partly covered area brims with activity from traders and pilgrims. Vendors shout cheap prices and run off a playlist of their stall’s best products. The crowds are part of the fun – and so is the haggling. Stop to smell the misk oil, then name your price.

Panorama Mall
Shopping areas
All the fun of the fair. Panorama Mall isn’t just a shopping centre – it’s also an indoor theme park. Air hockey tables, colourful carousels, zombie shoot-‘em-ups, flumes in the shape of a seal – Panorama’s flush with ways to keep whippersnappers amused. Meanwhile, the on-site spa facilities offer pampering possibilities for mums too.
Accommodation near Panorama Mall
Al Noor Mall
Shopping areas
Shop till you drop in Alnoor. Dedicated followers of fashion will be at home in this swanky shopping centre, where two floors are packed with high-end shops. The food court will fill hungry bellies, with over twenty eateries and cafés to choose from. Excitable nippers are catered for too – Sparky’s is a play area with a soft playground, arcade games and an ice rink.
