Exploring Saudi Arabia
If you consider yourself something of a thrill seeker then you will surely want to experience the exhilaration of driving an ATV across the country's sand dunes. For some truly outstanding scenery it is advisable to head to the Empty Quarter, which is probably best enjoyed as part of a group visit. The best place to experience water-sports in this fascinating destination is Obhir-Creek, just 30 miles north of Jeddah.

Alternatively a day of entertainment can be enjoyed at one of the various amusement parks, which are generally found close to the shopping malls and beaches.
