All in all, it’s a must-visit for the keen influencer in Saudi Arabia.
2 The Saudi Cup
Sometimes it’s good to get a bit of sport onto your timeline. There is one huge sporting event in Saudi Arabia that tends to draw a lot of social media influencers every year. It is the Saudi Cup. This horse racing event is now the richest in the world, with a great top prize, and the real benefit of that for an influencer is that lots of celebrities and famous people tend to go there. So if you want a chance of catching a selfie with a celebrity, there could be many good places to try your luck than at the world’s wealthiest horse race. Plus, you’ll get the chance to dress up and look your best – and who knows, you might even enjoy watching the horse racing too.
3 Rock Carving Sites
Some of the most famous sights in Saudi Arabia are the rock carving places that can be found, primarily in two places: Jubbah and Shuwaymis. These rocky archaeological sites are an incredible thing to witness, and for the keen social media influencer, they are a great photo opportunity. On these rocks, you can see some huge depictions of the kinds of things that people past used to do in that same place, so it’s an amazing historical lesson as well as being a fascinating sight. If you want to show an intellectual side on your social media, then this might be a good way to do so.
4 Going Water Blobbing
If you have never heard of water blobbing, it’s an amazing extreme sport experience which many visitors to Saudi Arabia try their hand at. And if you have been looking at other influencers’ feeds which have been to the country, you will probably have spotted this at least a couple of times. Water blobbing is where you are thrown high into the air by an intense water pressure while standing on a kind of board attached to a long cord. If it sounds scary, it probably is – but it would make for a pretty interesting Instagram Story. To do it, you’ll have to visit the Albatoul Marine, which is a beautiful area with some great photographic panorama to take in too.
5 Wahba Crater
If you’d like to have a little more of the natural world on your feed, then you might want to think about trying out some interesting natural sites that Saudi Arabia has to offer. There are plenty, but one that draws a lot of people in is the Wahba crater, a volcanic crater 700km from Riyadh. From here, you have some amazing scenery to have behind you in photographs, and it makes for an unforgettable camping experience. That alone could prove interesting on your socials, so it’s worth thinking about.
If you want to fill out your social feeds with plenty of exciting things, you will find Saudi Arabia perfectly accommodating.
