    Hello ,
    Thanks for shading a light on interest spots in EP.
    I am disappointed though for not placing my hometown, Jubail Industrial City on your list.
    There are lots of activities open for public for freem along with long sandy beaches.
    I hope to see more & glad to be a follower of your publication.
    Regards
