If Riyadh’s buildings give you an air of excitement, then wait till you see what can be achieved outdoors.

Much of the barren landscape has been metamorphosed into park-like settings, and some of the designs are quite stunning, though there is a lot else to see besides parks.

Just remember that in the summer months temperatures can reach over 50 degrees in the sunshine, so take plenty of water with you as it is all too easy to suffer the effects of dehydration.

Alternatively – or additionally – try experiencing the great outdoors at night time when lighting is often used to great effect.
