I visited Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in January. And as I do every time I get to a new city, I made to the highest point to get my bearings.
In Riyadh this is the SkyBridge, a 65-meter viewing platform atop the Kingdom Tower skyscraper.
I’ve been to more than 10 viewing platforms across the world, including London’s View from the Shard, New York’s Empire State Building, Berlin’s TV Tower, the Tokyo Tower, and the Shanghai Tower.
SkyBridge ranks very high on the list. It wasn’t busy, nor too expensive, and the view was spectacular.
Here’s what it was like.
