It is hot. You can drink alcohol, but water is advised because you will dehydrate. The cruise port is Mina Salman and it is a very popular port. Saudi Arabia is so close it can be seen, and residents from there travel here to party and drink alcohol. It is a big city, and these films will help you see a walk round the capital. Take water. Signs are in English and Arabic, but crossing roads is not easy. The first film has great info, then interesting narrative. The second film is a walk round.

If you find big cities draughting, then maybe a tour or a bus tour would be an idea here. We suggest you look at the tours because they always feature what is best.
