What to do in Riyadh in Winter 2019

This city is located in the middle of Saudi Arabia, meaning it is subject to some of the country's harshest climates. As a result, your vehicle with its climate control system is usually the most comfortable place for you to be. In the winter temperatures can fall to just above zero at night. The environment is usually dry year-round which makes the weather feel a little cooler than it actually is. There are a number of fun and exciting activities to do here during the winter months. Visit the Nofa African Resort Safari & Wildlife Centre and be sure to book tours in advance as they tend to sell out. From January 16 to February 16 be sure to check out Wonderland. This is a fun festival for the entire family offering a wide selection of games, performances, and arts. It is located at the Princess Nora Bint Abdul Rahman University in the northern part of the city.

Traffic Information

Driving in any new city can be intimidating, and Riyadh is no different. However, so long as you are confident and follow the rules of the road you will be sure to get to your destination safely. Fortunately, this is very much a car-focused city. Most streets and landmarks are marked in signs that have both English and Arabic, however some are still only marked in Arabic. As such, it is a good idea to opt for our optional GPS add-on to ensure you stay on course. The main east-west thoroughfare is Highway 40 that runs from Dammam, and the highway from Khobar to Bahrain with other linkages to roads leading to the north of Saudi Arabia. When on the major highways be sure to keep a lookout for large trucks that often travel in convoys.


Sixt Tips

Riyadh has been an important city in the region for hundreds of years. Formally known as Hajr, it served as the capital of the Al-Yamamah province whose leaders presided over much of eastern and central Arabia. The city was then the capital of Saudi Arabia when it was first created as we know it today back in 1932 and has grown ever since. Latest estimates have the city's population at well over 5 million inhabitants. The modern business districts of Suleimaniyah and Olaya contain most of the city's offices and hotels and are located to the north of Makkah Road. The city's two main skyscrapers, the Al Faisaliya Center and Kingdom Tower offer great orientation points for visitors and locals alike. Both are located between King Fahd Road and Olaya Road that runs parallel. Speaking of Olayah Road, this is the place to visit if you plan on doing some upscale shopping with your car rental in Riyadh.


Sightseeing Destinations

When visiting this city be sure to check out one of the main museums and historical sites. Take your rent a car in Riyadh for a spin around town to check out the sights. A great place to start is at the Masmak Fortress. Located in the heart of the city, this fortress was stormed by King Abdul Aziz back in 1902. Recently renovated in 2008, the structure now looks like it was built only yesterday. Be sure to check out the museum located within for a history lesson on not only the fortress and city, but the country as a whole. While in the spirit of learning about history, make sure to stop at the National Museum. Opened in 1999, this museum has all of the latest technologies.

Business Travel

Compared to other cities in Saudi Arabia, Riyadh is primarily a business destination. When arriving at the Riyadh Airport, it is easy to get to the city center, although allow time for traffic.
