What is the best time to visit Riyadh?

The best time to experience everything Riyadh can offer is between the months of November and March. During these times the temperature remains between 14°C at night to 26°C at max, during the day. The city is usually dry and hot in the summer but coming to Riyadh in the winter can really be a pleasant experience. Of all the cooler months mentioned above, November seems to be the loveliest as more travellers tend to stroll on the streets of Riyadh during that month.

What is the cheapest time of year to fly to Riyadh?

The cheapest time of the year is definitely in the summer months, specifically in the month of May. Riyadh has very hot and dry summers that are perceived to be unbearable for people coming from Europe. This notion is somewhat misplaced as Riyadh is the capital city of Saudi Arabia, home to six million people, some of whom are expatriates. This modern city has its halls, malls, markets, hotels and bazaars fully air-conditioned. This means that apart from when getting in and out of your car, the heat would remain far away from you. Coming to Riyadh during these times could save you a lot of money for some extra shopping. The prices of the airfare and accommodations bounce back in June as many Saudis return back to their homeland from abroad for the summer vacations.

Is there a major international airport in Riyadh?

Riyadh is served by King Khalid International Airport (RUH). The airport is the second largest in terms of land area in the entire world. Last year, the airport assisted over 25 million passengers to reach their destination. King Khalid Airport is located 35 kilometres from the city centre of Riyadh, which amounts to be a 30 minutes ride from your downtown hotel.

British citizens can visit Riyadh by applying for a visa at the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in London. The embassy can take three to four days to process your visa. Please make sure that your British passport does not expire in six months from the time of entering the Kingdom. Also, please note that during the Hajj season, the authorities can either stop you from boarding the aeroplane or deny you entry in Saudi Arabia at the immigration. This rule is for both Muslim and Non-Muslim citizens and is put in place to regulate the flow of foreigners coming into the country during the jam-packed Hajj season.

Riyadh celebrates its Muslim heritage with religious fervour and zeal. The Islamic calendar follows the lunar months, which is why the exact dates of these festivals cannot be pinpointed.

The Milad un Nabi festival is a celebration of the birthday of the prophet of Islam. The birthday of the prophet is celebrated by distributing sweets, candies, delights and is accompanied by merrymaking. The Eid ul Fitr festival follows after the end of the month long fasting. Devoted Muslims celebrated this event by inviting relatives and travellers into their home for a hearty meal. There are roasted meats, aromatic spiced rice and sweetened dough balls that dissolve in the mouth. The Eid ul Adha festival comes to Riyadh at the time when Muslims from all over the globe converge at Mecca to perform the Hajj pilgrimage. The Eid festival is synonymous with Barbeque parties that keep on rocking well into the night.

What are the transportation options available to tourists within Riyadh?
