There is no Disneyland or Six Flags here in Saudi Arabia, but there are hundreds of smaller amusement parks for families with smaller children. Large malls often have their own amazing amusement centers. For some reason, many large fish eateries that are equipped with individual dining tents and occupy a fair amount of acreage also have their own amusement areas as well, often with ferris wheels and other rides. The city of Taif, which is set in the mountains and is a popular summer retreat for families because of its cooler temperatures, also has an abundance of amusement parks. This is the colorfully wild and fun looking entry gate to one of those parks. It’s not exactly what one might expect to see in an ultra conservative, ultra religious place like Saudi Arabia.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
