Several modern buildings have sprung up thanks to Riyadh's economic growth, but the most striking of all is Kingdom Tower. Dominating the skyline at 992 feet, it's the fifth tallest skyscraper in the whole of Saudi Arabia and the second tallest in Riyadh. It acts as a major business and shopping destination where visitors can eat, browse the stores or even pray at the mosque on the 77th floor.
Experience Riyadh from above
The Kingdom Tower is commonly referred to as ‘the necklace' owing to its unusual apex with a circular opening. Forget enduring endless steps here – visitors are whisked away in a high-speed elevator with twinkling lights, some of which have been designed to resemble shooting stars. Stepping out on into the Sky Bridge on the 99th floor, visitors will be greeted with a 360-degree panorama of Riyadh. To catch the view over Riyadh in the most flattering light, try to go at dusk when visitors can see the sun setting over the desert before the city lights get switched on and Riyadh gears up for the evening. Measuring about 303 meters, this 99-storey skyscraper in Riyadh is the world's third-tallest building with a hole, combining an impressive shopping mall, a hotel, and Sky Bridge on top of the tower. With 65 meters in length, weighting about 300 tons and sitting on top of the 300-meter height tower, Sky bridge is an impressive steel and glass structure that provides visitors with amazing panoramic views over the capital city.
All luxury brands in one place
Expect to spend some money at one of the most luxurious malls in the world where some of the most high-end fashion brands are present. The mall provides a full spectrum of stores from high to low end brands, with even a floor just for ladies and a food court with plenty of restaurants to choose from. The trademark building of Riyad is spacious with a lot of light combining entertainment activities, exquisite shopping experience, spectacular views over the city and a relaxed atmosphere that you will make your visit unforgettable.
