Celebrate freedom after lockdown at these places

In the lockdown, what else are we doing than hope for a better future? Daydreaming the time when this all will be over and we’ll be free to roam in the places we like.

Here is a list of some beautiful places in Saudi Arabia that we can visit after months of lockdown.

Edge of the world

Ever wondered what the edge of the world would look like? Go see yourself after the lockdown is over. Edge of the world in Riyadh awaits your arrival. 

It’s a natural wall that stands tall outside Riyadh. It’s a geological wonder that attracts many tourists and locals.

The site is famous for off-roading and hiking. When you reach the top of the cliff, you’ll enjoy an uninterrupted view of the horizon, hence the name!

From atop you’ll notice desert in the distance, a few farms, and camels moving far below.

It’s recommended to go in an SUV and stay attentive to the potholes and rocks on the way.

Red Sand Dunes

Red Sand Dunes is located 1 hour away from the hustle-bustle of the city. On the outskirts of Riyadh, this beautiful land will give you a chance to breathe in the fresh air that you missed during the lockdown.

The red sand of the desert invites you to enjoy the early summer evenings. You can rent motorbikes and enjoy the desert safari.

The area is hidden by high mountains, which gives it its other name ‘ the Hidden Valley’.
