Photos: Inside the Red Pyramid in Cairo

Going inside the Red Pyramid in Cairo is an experience worth doing. It might be hard for those who have fear of closed spaces but you’d never regret it. You’ll reach the bosom of the Pyramid in your own time and emerge victorious. For some people, there’s “nothing to see there” but for me, it answers the […]

Video: This is What You’ll See Inside the Red Pyramid in Egypt

This is what you see inside the Red Pyramid in Egypt. It is said to be the world’s oldest true pyramids. This is located at Dahshur, 20 kilometres away from the famous trio of Pyramids in Giza. Don’t be fooled by its name though. The whole facade of the pyramid has nothing red on it. […]

Bahrain Skyline at Night (Manama).

Bahrain Skyline at Night

Last weekend, a colleague and I went to Manama to renew our Saudi visa. I’ve been to Bahrain 4 times already and I stayed 3-4 nights in each visit. There’s nothing much to do in Bahrain, really. You can even explore the whole country in half a day! Manama is called “Saudi Bar” by the […]

I Wore Flip Flops Climbing Mountains in Al Ula

Yes, that’s right. I wore flip flops climbing mountains in Al Ula. They’re not your ordinary mountains but rocky mountains which can be dangerous when you step on imbalanced rocks. I didn’t bring my shoes because no one told me we were gonna climb mountains. It was supposed to be just a hike – but when […]

Is Al Ula the Grand Canyon of Saudi Arabia?

Is Al Ula the Grand Canyon of Saudi Arabia? From above, it looks like one but not completely like it. The panoramic views of sandstones and rock formations are breathtakingly stunning as the sun goes down. But going up there is quite interesting – you’ll pass through a steep, zigzag road that can be really […]

The Mud Brick Houses of the Old Town of Al Ula in Saudi Arabia.

The Mud Brick Houses of the Old Town of Al Ula

In Biblical Times, Al Ula was called as Dedan. It is mentioned in Isaiah 21:13 as a home trade base of Arab caravans. Today, the old town of Al Ula is a ghost town. No one lives there anymore but there’s a new town that is settled not far from the old. When you think of […]

The Lion Tombs Carved in the Rock Mountains

The Lion Tombs Carved in the Rock Mountains

They are called Lion Tombs carved in the rock mountains. Don’t get it wrong – there are definitely no dead lions buried inside. The lions are literally carved on the side of one of the Al Khuraiba Tombs. These small tombs are walking distance from a discovered old kingdom called “Kingdom of Lihyan.” Unlike the […]
