If you're living in Riyadh and want to visit another capital city in a different region of the world, you can plan a trip to the Phillipines. It takes 10 hours to fly from Riyadh to Manila after you depart from King Khalid International Airport (RUH), and soon you'll be part of the lively action in one of Southeast Asia's busiest cities.
Manila was founded within the walls of what's known as the Intramuros district, and this area is still a center of cultural activity and home to several historic buildings, including the San Agustin Church and the Manila Cathedral. Fort Santiago stands at the entrance to the district along with the reconstructed Maestranza Wall. If you'd like to mingle with the locals, you can visit the street markets around Quiapo Church. At this site, just across the Quezon Bridge over the Pasig River, people come to buy food, clothing and electronics, and the streets can be very densely packed.
After landing at Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL), you can take a licensed taxi to your destination. Be prepared for warm weather any time of year as highs are usually in the upper 80s. June through September make up the rainy months, and visiting during this time means you'll likely see some downpours.
