Just have a look at luxurious villages of Saudi Arabia | The Youth report

There are many historic towns in Saudi Arabia. It does not take too much time to roam the village on foot. The houses in the village are made entirely of stone and many houses, in fact, are multi-storied. From far houses look like they are built on top of the marble. The specialty of these villages is that they have become a tourist spot. Many people from other countries come to Saudi Arabia to see the beauty of the country.

Gyms are available in every village of Saudi Arabia. Roads in villages are wide and you can find several mosques in the area. Houses have been built in rows and cars are parked outside the house. While building a house, they always leave enough space for parking the car. Houses are recognized by door nameplates. Some people in the village keep drivers in their house. In Saudi Arabia, the climate is generally desert, and it’s very hot in summer across the country. The rains are very scarce almost everywhere. There are also big markets which are about 20 km far from the village.
