"A LIVING COMMUNITY" Yanbu` al Bahr Things to Do Tip by arabian10

Yanbu` al Bahr Things to Do: 135 reviews and 138 photos

by arabian10

Yanbu is industry and infrastructure, yes. But even more, it is a living community a city designed for people, where both Saudis and citizens of other countries can lead full and satisfying lives.

Because people come firs, tradition has not been sacrificed to technology. Facilities are modern, yet Yanbu's character is unmistakably Arabic and Islamic. Graceful minarets and the calls to prayer, fountains and courtyards, the sounds of children at play - these reminders of a traditional way of life permeate the community and contribute immeasurably to the residents' quality of life.
