Riyadh’s local attractions
Riyadh's Kingdom Centre Tower skyscraper, at 992 feet tall, is the world's third largest building with a hole in. Take a visit to see the view from the top. For a taste of local culture and history, head to the National Museum where the history of Islam is explored and the founding king of Saudi Araba's array of expensive cars are displayed.
