Watch: A YouTuber Rides First-Class On Saudi Arabia’s Luxurious Overnight Desert Train
The Riyadh-Qurrayat train, which lies near the northern border of the country, was launched in 2022. YouTuber Rory Ding Travels boarded the overnight train and booked a private cabin for himself, and it’s clearly giving off those airline-type first-class vibes.
The journey ahead spans over 1,200 kilometres and takes over 11 hours.
But fret not, as the train’s modern comforts and stunning desert vistas are sure to keep travellers entertained throughout the trip.
Inside the private cabin, Rory is delighted to find a world of elegance and relaxation. The cabin is spacious, well-appointed, and equipped with all the modern amenities one could desire. It’s basically like a hotel room on wheels.
