Things To Do in Riyadh

Enjoy sunset views, fresh flowers and quiet places to read a book

Self-care is so important, but it’s often ignored in our busy lives. This is the time to make a change. Treat yourself because you deserve it. Full stop. As important as it is to show your loved ones how much they mean to you, it’s as important to show yourself the same care and appreciation. Whether it’s going to relaxing with a pampering sesh, leisurely stroll, getting outdoors for some one-on-one competition, going out for a blow-of-budget dinner at a new Riyadh restaurant or even a staycation, we recommend you put aside a little time for yourself and enjoy some things to do alone in Riyadh. Then make it a promise to do it more regularly.
