This guide is designed for optimal navigation on eReaders, smartphones, and other mobile electronic devices. It is indexed alphabetically and by category, making it easier to access individual articles. Articles feature information about attractions, landmarks, districts, transportation, cultural venues, dining, history and much more. Addresses, telephones, hours of operation and admissions information are included where possible. The guide is complemented by clearly marked maps that are linked to city attractions. An interlinked phrasebook as well as a pronunciation guide are included.
NEW FEATURE: The attraction articles now include links to Google Maps. On a dedicated electronic reader with a slow connection and a primitive browser, Google Maps will display the attraction on the map along with metro stations, roads, and nearby attractions. On an internet-enabled device such as the iPhone and the iPad, Google Maps will even show you the route from your current location to the attraction you want to go to.

An excellent ebook
This is easily one of the most splendid travel guides to Saudi Arabia. For Muslims about to undertake the hajj, this ebook will offer the richness of the pilgrimage, which is often as much a travel adventure as spiritual rite. Non-Muslims will get a great swath of Muslim history, a wonderful encapsulation of Islamic civilization, and of course the great beauty of the Kingdom.
