Tourism is taking off in Saudi Arabia as the government works to designate the kingdom as a tourist destination.
There are numerous development, commercial, and tourism projects in the works and Riyadh Season is one of the projects that the Saudi Entertainment Authority has created to draw visitors to the city for a stunning entertainment festival.
