Day 1: Edge of The World

Enjoy the hike at The Edge of the World (its real name is Jabel Fihrayn), one of Saudi’s most popular tourist destinations, got its nickname from the uninterrupted view of the horizon it offers atop its 300-meter-high cliffs, which overlook the surrounding plain. It’s part of the much longer Tuwaiq escarpment, and drops down roughly 305 meters into an ancient ocean bed. From the top of the cliffs, you’ll spot dried rivers weaving across the land and may even see camels moving far below — an ancient caravan route once passed through these grounds.

 


Day 2: City Tour

1- Souk Al Zal

We start our tour by visiting one the oldest market in the the country.
One of Riyadh’s oldest traditional markets that carries 100 years of history within its alleyways. As soon as you start your tour in Souk AlZal and hear the sellers’ voices in the auctions, you will feel that you have traveled to the past of the city. The souk is known for its antiques, rare coins, and old utensils. You may also find musical instruments, old record players, and hundreds of interesting items that seem as if they came from a museum of ancient folk traditions.

 

2- Al Masmak Fortress (photpstop)

Masmak Fort is in the AlDirah neighborhood of Riyadh, a symbol of the unification of Saudi Arabia. It was the site of a historic battle that turned the tide of the struggle for control in favor of the House of Saud and paved the way for modern-day Saudi Arabia. It is made from clay and mudbrick fort.

4- Al- Murabba Palace

The Murabba Palace was established by order of King Abdulaziz, the founder of the Kingdom. You will notice the unique design of the foyer at the center of the palace, surrounded by all the rooms. It was designed according to the prevalent traditional designs at the time, conveying unique architecture to its modern-day visitors.
