Saudi Arabian society is undergoing a transitional journey as the Kingdom welcomes more visitors from overseas to encourage a developing tourism industry. The concept of hospitality has deep roots in Saudi society and the Jockey Club of Saudi Arabia is proud to host our international visitors at The Saudi Cup 2021.
First-time visitors to Saudi Arabia, here are some important things to keep in mind;
- Please do not attempt to bring alcohol into the country.
- Saudi Arabians are naturally very welcoming people and traditional Arabic hospitality and good manners are an important part of society.
- Please remember that Saudi Arabia observes Islamic prayer timings and shops may close during these times.
- Women do not need to cover their heads but it is advisable to wear modest clothing with full length trousers or skirts and upper arms covered.
