A city’s embassy quarter isn’t always as cut and dried as it sounds. The Diplomatic Quarter in Riyadh is a hive of energy with its many cultural attractions, retail outlets and wealth of recreational activities.
Buzzing during the day and safe and sound when the lights go out, the Diplomatic Quarter might just be the perfect place for long-term stays and spacious accommodation in the Saudi capital.
With no shortage of walking and biking paths, the Diplomatic Quarter makes a huge effort to accommodate its residents and visitors.
You’ll find plenty of shops and bustling souks, restaurants and cafés without having to venture into the city, and the palm-filled gardens are a popular go-to when families get together for picnics.
Visit the Cultural Palace, Tuwaiq Palace and Al-Kindi Plaza with its mosque to soak up some of the area’s most iconic attractions.
