At-Turaif, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers you an opportunity to explore the meticulously restored ruins of Salwa Palace, which served as the original residence of the Al-Saud royal family. A bridge from At-Turaif then leads you to the charming Bujairi Terrace, where a diverse array of 20 local and international restaurants await.

What sets Bujairi Terrace apart from other high-end dining destinations is its perfect balance of Saudi cuisine and top-notch international brands, from Chez Bruno to Hakkasan. All you need to do is make sure that you have a reservation at one of these coveted restaurants.
