Review: Saudi Arabia (Lonely Planet Country Guide)

User Review  - Olean Public Library - Goodreads

-A comprehensive study of this area. Shows all the tourist areas and those places an average person would not go. It gave the cost of visiting the area, which is a very attractive place, if you can get into it. Read full review
