Lonely Planet review
Riyadh’s landmark tower is a stunning piece of modern architecture – it’s particularly conspicuous at night when the upper sweep is lit with constantly changing coloured lights.
Rising 302m high, its most distinctive feature is the steel-and-glass 300-ton bridge connecting the two towers. High-speed elevators fly you (at 180km/h) to the 99th floor Sky Bridge from where the views are breathtaking (you’re allowed to take photos from up here). Avoid weekends and evenings after 6pm when it can get very crowded.
