“Good to see some real Saudi culture- not just shopping Malls!”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

Although it is not impressive by historic English/ Russian or French houses/ attractions- it is really interesting. I so wanted to see some "real" arabic culture. It is good if you get a book or a guide- or read up about it before. It was fascinating to see the original construction methods, and a very unique architecture of the region. It is really good to see that the Saudis are staring to take tourism, and the sort of things we want to see seriously. Also that they are proud of their own culture not just building massive western style buildings. One word of warning- like everything here- getting info is not always easy. It took two visits to finally go when it was open.
