Critically acclaimed and popular with the general public, The Savages is easily one of the best survival shows out there. As a group of teenage girls get caught up in a teenage experience on an island, chaos ensues and continues in the show’s recent second season.

While the Prime Video original stands out on its own, comparisons to other survival classics like Lost or recent offers like squid game and yellow jackets are obvious. These equally beloved shows can make great companions once viewers finish the island drama’s final season.

The 100 (2014-2020)

Stream on Netflix


Eliza Taylor on The 100

In a dystopian future, the survivors of humanity have taken shelter from the dangers of Earth’s outer environment. The 100 then takes care of the young delinquents who are sent to check if the planet is still habitable.

Like The Savages also deals with a similar social experiment turned quest for survival, the teen drama will appeal to fans of the former. The teenage demographics of the main characters is another similarity to The Savages. If viewers also need a show that recalls tropes from YA novels like The hunger Games and Divergentso The 100 serves as the perfect watch.

Squid Game (2021-)

Stream on Netflix


Netflix adds 3 movies made by Squid Game Creator

The Korean thriller that took the world by storm, squid game reinvented the “battle royale” formula with dangerous and creative games. With hordes of people willingly joining a deadly competition to pay off their debts, they go through games ranging from Tug of War to Hopscotch.


What could have been a cliched attempt at the survival genre has become an extremely original phenomenon. Aside from the larger storyline that is uncovered towards the end, squid game benefits greatly from its main characters and the socio-political commentary they evoke as well as its multicolored geometric production design. Viewers may have seen these games before, but not in a larger than life way.

Lost (2004-2010)

Stream on Hulu


All the characters from Lost (2004)

Before JJ Abrams made big budget movies, he orchestrated Lost which is still considered one of the best shows of the 2000s. Although it begins by following the ordeals of survivors of a plane crash, the show continues to incorporate genres like fantasy and science fiction .


Yes The Savages arouses the interest of the public to discover more classics of the survival genre, then Lost made for viewing par excellence. In fact, many other later multi-genre shows were heavily inspired by Lost. Whether it’s character-driven stories or internal conflict between survivors, Lost provides high quality addictive dramas.

Yellow Vests (2021-)

Stream on Showtime


One of the most acclaimed shows of the last year was yellow jackets. A little like The Savagesits premise kicks off with a plane crash, though this one is set in 1996. As the teenage high school footballers survive a grueling 19 months, their lives change forever, as seen in their current lives in 2021.


RELATED: Showtime’s 10 Best Yellowjackets Characters

The constant time jumps make the plot more introspective. Often, survival shows can simply succumb to presenting the horrors of survival in the wilderness. However, in yellow jackets, the adult survivors have passed the island and yet must deal with the horrors of their teenage years. These psychological elements make it the ideal companion for The Savagesboth of which can be considered realistic works of horror.

Snowdrop (2019-)

Stream on Netflix


Based on the Bong Joon-ho movie of the same name (which itself was based on a French graphic novel), snowdrops has all the makings of a survival drama, but it breaks the norm of not using a tropical island as a setting. Instead, it takes place on a train that houses humanity’s last survivors as the outside world freezes to destructive levels. Inside the titular train, a hierarchy exists between those in power and the underdog.


It is this theme of social inequality that shows the main characters as pawns ready to fight for their freedom. With such heroic ideals present in contemporary shows like The Savages and squid game, snowdrops becomes not only entertaining but also socially relevant.

The White Lotus (2021-)

Stream on HBO Max


The cast of The White Lotus arriving at the beaches of the titular resort

A satirical comedy about the ultra-rich, The White Lotus deals with the lives of the many wealthy people who visit a Hawaii retreat for a relaxing vacation. However, as the days pass, chaos ensues with families fighting, marriages broken up and the resort manager losing patience.

The main characters of The White Lotus are “imperfectly imperfect” with each of their morally gray areas leaving room for interpretation. It’s not your typical survival show with people stranded on an island as the characters voluntarily sign up for a hassle-free vacation. However, the ensuing conflicts make it dramatic enough to impress fans of more intense survival shows like The Savages.

Gilligan’s Island (1964-1967)

Buy on Apple TV+


Gilligan's Island

Before The Savages and before Lostthere was Gilligan’s Island. The influential ’60s sitcom was about seven strangers stranded on an island after a violent storm. As they struggle to coexist together, they also elaborate on their failed attempts to escape.

A delightful comedy of errors, Gilligan’s Island is a must-have watch for all adventure TV aficionados. Today, he’s been referenced in multiple genre homages while Bob Denver’s protagonist, Gilligan, has become a cultural icon in his own right.

Castaway (2016–2018)

Stream on HBO Max


Ally Maki holding a golf club in Wrecked

Whether it’s fictional survival series like Lost or reality TV shows like Survivor, castaway is the best parody of the genre overall. Like any other pick in the genre, the sitcom is about people crashing on a remote island. As they struggle to live without modern conveniences, Destroy takes a hilarious look at how nearly impossible it would be for the average population to live a primitive life.

The Savages can be quite intense with its real life horrors and psychological drama. In this context, Destroy can act as a light break.

Crusoe (2008-2009)

Stream to Vix


Robinson Crusoe pointing a gun while Friday watches Crusoe

Serving as both an adaptation and continuation of the adventure novel Robinson Crusoe, this period drama deals with the adventures of the titular protagonist and his companion Friday. Stranded on an island for their own reasons, Robinson Crusoe and Friday team up to not only get out of the middle of nowhere, but also to seek revenge for the circumstances that brought them here.

RELATED: 10 Best TV Adaptations Of Books

The Savages is one of the few survival shows to reinvent the genre for modern audiences. But for viewers who crave an old-school, swashbuckler-style adventure, Crusoe can be a good contrast.

Panic (2021)

Stream to Prime Video


Ray Nicholson as Ray Hall and Olivia Welch as Heather Nill in Panic on Amazon Prime

Located in a quiet rural Texas colony, Panic refers to a game that the graduates of the city must play. Even though the game tests their worst fears and puts their lives in danger, Panic is the only way out of the city limits.

Given how Panic streams on Prime Video, it looks like the streaming giant is trying to replicate the hype created by The Savages. Indeed, the two shows share several similarities when it comes to thematic elements. Despite positive reactions, Panic was canned after a single season. It’s always interesting to speculate what he might have been and if he would have competed The Savages.

The way migrating animals like sea turtles navigate hundreds to thousands of miles across the ocean has puzzled biologists since Charles Darwin. But some sea turtles might not really know where they’re going, new research suggests.

Analysis by an international team of scientists mapped the movements of hawksbill turtles as they swam from their nesting grounds in the Chagos Archipelago to feeding sites also in the Indian Ocean.

It found that turtles often take circuitous routes when migrating over short distances, suggesting that the animals’ navigational sense is relatively rudimentary in the open ocean.

Turtles typically traveled twice the required distance to their target locations. One individual swam 1,306 km to reach an island that was only 176 km away – traveling more than seven times the distance in a straight line.

The team tagged and satellite-tracked 22 hawksbill turtles after they finished nesting.

Generally, sea turtles do not feed and nest in the same geographic area. These animals would have already undergone a migration from their feeding grounds, a breeding season, and laid several broods before preparing for the return trip.

Chair in Marine Science at Deakin University and the study’s first author, Professor Graeme Hays, said that if turtles were perfect navigators, they would likely move on direct paths from their nesting sites to areas of food looking for food. “These turtles that we’re tracking – they probably hadn’t eaten in four or five months,” he said.

Previous research has suggested that turtles likely imprint themselves on the magnetic field of their natal area – where they later return to lay eggs – and detect changes in the Earth’s magnetic field as a means of navigating the ocean.

Hays said the new study suggests the turtles “almost certainly use a geomagnetic map, but that’s a pretty coarse resolution.”

“So it doesn’t allow for accurate straight-line migration, but it tells them when they’re straying off the road,” he said.

Hawksbill turtles typically migrate distances of around 150 km, a modest distance compared to the migration of green turtles, Hays said.

“For the green sea turtles that nest in the Chagos Archipelago…we tracked them almost 5,000 km to their feeding grounds,” he said. “They will swim across the Indian Ocean to the mainland African coast.

“Although it’s a long journey, in a sense it’s actually quite an easy navigational task because all the turtle has to do is swim vaguely west and it will eventually reach Africa. “

Although hawksbills performed much shorter migrations in comparison, they had the tricky navigational task of locating specific small places like remote isolated islands or submerged shores.

The new research suggests that turtles’ geomagnetic map sense is not fine enough to locate specific targets.

When closer to their intended locations, the animals likely use other navigational cues, including smell and visual cues, Hays said. “In the final stages, they can sense an island they are heading towards.”

“When they get some kind of visual cue, for example, the water starts to get a little shallower and they can see the seabed, so they’ve probably gotten some kind of cognitive map of that area. They could probably just recognize the seabed, just as you would recognize visual landmarks in the area where you live.

Thousands of Afghans had piled into buses and traveled the country’s once perilous highways to relatives they hadn’t seen in years. Afghanistan’s only national park was packed with tourists who had only dreamed of traveling to its deep blue lakes and jagged mountains as fighting raged across the country.

And Zulhijjah Mirzadah, a mother of five, packed a small picnic of dried fruit, gathered her family in a minibus and rode for two hours through the crowded streets of the capital, Kabul, to an amusement park lively.

From the entrance, she could hear the thud of a roller coaster and the chorus of joyful cries of Afghans inside celebrating Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan. But she couldn’t go any further. The women, he was told at the gate, were barred by the Taliban from entering the park on Eid Day.

“We are facing economic problems; things are expensive; we cannot find work; our girls can’t go to school, but we were hoping to have a picnic in the park today,” said Mirzadah, 25.

As Afghans endured the constant and random violence of the past two decades of war, many hoped that when peace finally returned to the country, Eid al-Fitr would be its culmination, a day when families long separated by fighting would end up being able to party together.

Now that the war is over. People can move freely on the highways without gunshots, roadside bombs and extortion attempts. The terrifying drone of warplanes overhead is long gone. But for many, the celebration that began last Sunday in Afghanistan served as a reminder of the dissonance between the promise of peace that many Afghans had imagined and the realities of ending the war.

A crippling economic crisis that has slashed incomes and skyrocketed commodity prices has forced many families to forgo Eid traditions of new clothes or dried fruit for the first time. Mosques were emptier than usual after a recent spate of explosions fueled fears of a return to terror attacks.

And many women in urban areas, who have been devastated by the restrictions imposed by the Taliban government, have found little cause for celebration. On Saturday, the Taliban decreed that Afghan women must cover themselves from head to toe, expanding a series of onerous restrictions on women that dictate nearly every aspect of public life.

“To be honest, we don’t have Eid this year,” said Mirzadah, who had spent the afternoon with her family sitting across from the park on a narrow strip of grass.

Most Kabul residents learned that the Taliban had announced the start of the holiday after a celebratory roar of gunfire thundered through the city on the night of April 30. Afghanistan was the first Muslim country to officially declare the sighting of a full crescent moon, kicking off the start of the holidays.

The next morning, hundreds of men with prayer rugs under their arms marched through the Sher Shah Suri Mosque, a large Sunni mosque west of Kabul. Across the courtyard, they spread the mats in the shade of twisting tree branches as armed Taliban intelligence operatives dressed in camouflage pants and bulletproof vests patrolled the grounds of the mosque looking for threats – a stark reminder of the threat of violence that persists despite the end of 20 years of war.

In the two weeks leading up to the start of Eid this year, a bloody series of terror attacks on mosques, schools and public gatherings killed at least 100 people, mostly Afghan Shiites, and raised fears that the great prayers of the first day of Eid would be the next target.

At the Seyyed Abad Mosque, the largest Shia mosque in the northern city of Kunduz, only about 50 worshipers arrived for prayers on May Day, compared to 400-500 people in previous years, attendees said . Many people, terrified by another explosion, avoided the mosque altogether. But many of those who attended were motivated by a different fear: disobeying the Taliban government’s declaration that Eid began on May Day.

Many Afghan Shiites questioned the date – one day before Saudi Arabia and two days before Iran, a Shia theocracy. But worried about the repercussions of the Taliban – who have used police-state tactics to maintain order since taking power – many attended Eid prayers on Sunday, even as they continued their day of Ramadan fasting. and refrained from celebrating at home.

“The Taliban did not threaten us that we had to pray, but as soon as they came to tell us that Eid prayers would start on Sunday and that they would come to provide security at the mosque, no one dared to tell them I don’t believe Eid has started,” said Mansoor, 33, a Kunduz resident who preferred to use only his first name for fear of repercussions.

But for Taliban soldiers and police, the holiday offered a moment of reflection on the struggle that brought them back to power and the lives they have established for themselves since.

In the parking lot of a police station in Kabul, a group of Taliban police arrived in a dark green van, guns slung over their shoulders. The handcuffs hung from the wrist of a policeman like a big bracelet, while another held a pink flower picked from the embankment of the road against his nose.

Mohibullah Mushfiq, 26, had spent every Eid in the mountains and dusty villages away from his loved ones since joining the Taliban at 15. But after the Taliban took over, he moved his family from their village in the east to a third-floor apartment in Kabul.

On the first morning of Eid this year, he shared sweets with his 4-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter, both bounding with excitement at the prospect of spending the holidays in the big city. He proudly welcomed his government’s announcement of the start of Eid.

“It shows our unity, our position in the Islamic tradition – they announced Eid, and everyone had to accept it,” he said.

Across the country, some Afghans took advantage of the relative security the Taliban was able to provide for Eid celebrations. Hundreds of domestic tourists have flocked from across the country to Bamiyan, a province in central Afghanistan known for its natural beauty and ancient ruins, according to hotel owners and travel agents.

Parwin Sadat, 32, a private school teacher, hiked 27 hours to Bamiyan with her husband and 6-year-old child from the western city of Herat – a trip that would have been virtually impossible during the war , when fighting along the highways turned cities into islands in their own right. Bamiyan’s visit left Sadat impressed, she said.

“I didn’t know our country had such tourist destinations, historical places and so much beauty,” she said.

In a modest home nestled on one of Kabul’s many hills, 18-year-old Zhilla gathered with relatives at her aunt’s house on the second day of Eid. Her younger cousins ​​and siblings were chasing each other in the small yard. Inside, Zhilla marveled at her new cousin, just 6 days old, sleeping peacefully on her mother’s lap.

“The baby knows we’ve been through a lot; she has to behave for us,” Zhilla joked.

The previous year, she and her relatives had gathered near the city’s Qargha reservoir for a picnic by the river, as boys and girls cycled along its banks and out of the boats on the water – a memory that feels like a lifetime ago, she says.

“This Eid is the same as any other day – we can’t go out; we cannot be free,” she said.

Empire Magazine unveiled a new image for Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunderwhich offers the best look at Thor’s new costumes (Chris Hemsworth) and Jane Foster/Mighty Thor (Natalie Portman). It’s also obvious that Jane will be controlling Mjolnir, which is sure to lend itself to tons of comedy between her and “The Strongest Avenger.” Taika Waititi (What we do in the shadows, JoJo Rabbit) returned to lead love and thunderfollowing his soft reboot of the character in 2017 Thor: Ragnarok.

According to Waititi, Portman’s Jane Foster return is going to be a bit of a “mindfuck” for her former lover. The director also said his portrayal of the character would draw on some of Portman’s natural talents, saying, “She’s a little goofy and has a great sense of humor, and I don’t think that’s been enough. exploited in early films.”

COLLIDER VIDEO OF THE DAY

There aren’t too many surprises with the costumes, though they do look a bit brighter than what we’ve seen previously, especially with Thor. On the contrary, Jane seems to be closer to the colors Hemsworth wore for Thor and Thor: The Dark World. Thor’s costume is a little brighter with shades of blue and yellow, and maybe it was influenced by Guardians of the Galaxy. There’s also no way of knowing, although the duo could be on New Asgard, given the grassy landscape behind them.

Empire also had the opportunity to speak with Waititi about the decision to bring Jane back into the fold:

“I didn’t know we were going to use the Mighty Thor character script until we started working on the actual story. I was writing it and I was like, ‘Wouldn’t that be isn’t it pretty cool to bring Jane back into the script?”. You don’t want Natalie to come back and play this same character who walks around with science equipment. saying, ‘When will he come back?’. It’s boring. You want her to be part of the adventure.

Marvel didn’t shy away from making it clear that Portman would be returning as Mighty Thor, a development they announced back in 2019 at Comic Con. Not only does this give Portman the chance to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a larger role, but it also allows him to work with an Oscar winner in Waititi. It also contributes to Marvel’s drive to create strong female characters, with this year also seeing the introduction of Kamala Khan/Ms. Wonder (Iman Vellani), via his own solo series on Disney+.

Six bus stops on Main Street and Fairview Avenue will benefit from the redesign, according to Valley Regional Transit.

BOISE, Idaho – Security footage from Bobby Peterson, the owner of Fairly Reliable Bob car dealership, shows two vehicles driving on the sidewalk of a new bus stop design in downtown Boise.

The city is upgrading six bus stops on Fairview Avenue and Main Street to the new design, according to Valley Regional Transit (VRT) public information officer Mark Carnopis.

Not everyone thinks this new design is an improvement.

The new design of the bus stop separates the cycle path from the traffic lane. The design of the bus stop aims to “allow buses to stop safely for passengers without crossing tracks and without disrupting the flow of bicycle traffic”, according to Carnopis.

It’s a good idea on paper, according to Boise cyclist Rob Hanson. However, Hanson is concerned that right-turning drivers will not see the biker emerging from behind the bus stop structure.

“I’ll generally try to stay off roads that don’t have side space,” Hanson said. “People with these special lanes look at cars to turn right. A lot of times they miss a cyclist because they’re not in the lanes they’re looking at. So they pull right in front of you.”

It’s a concern Hanson shares with Fair Reliable Bob’s owner, Bobby Peterson. During the design phase of the bus stop, Petersen said his concerns fell on deaf ears.

“They built them too close to the traffic lane. So where the white line would normally be is where the sidewalk is,” Petersen said. “I don’t care who you are, if you’re driving a car you’ve touched the white line or crossed the white line. We all do that. None of us are perfect. But in this case, if you cross the white line white line, you hit a curb 12 inches.”

The project is managed by the Capital City Development Corporation. However, Valley Regional Transit spoke with KTVB on their behalf.

“Every stage of this project was designed based on transit street design guidelines and site-specific studies with the support and approval of [Ada County Highway District] and VRT… There is no encroachment on the traffic lane,” Carnopis wrote to KTVB in an email. the road, etc.”

In March, the design added reflective boundary sticks and stripped pavement leading to the platform’s front curb to alert drivers. Both safety measures were in place when two different drivers hit the curb in Fairly Reliable Bob’s safety footage.

Every month, Netflix adds movies and TV shows to its library. Here are our picks for some of May’s most promising new titles. (Note: Streaming services occasionally change times without notice. For more recommendations on what to stream, sign up for our Watch the newsletter here.)

Start streaming: May 5

Swedish maverick filmmaker and music video director Jonas Akerlund (“Spun,” “Lords of Chaos”) brings his visual panache and affection for incorrigible thieves to the six-part biographical drama “Clark.” The series is loosely based on the life of Clark Olofsson, the man credited with inspiring the term “Stockholm Syndrome” after bonding with his hostages during a bank robbery. Akerlund uses fast editing, varied color schemes and dynamic camera movements to emphasize the rush Olofsson received from theft, muggings and drug dealing. Bill Skarsgard (“It”) plays the titular character, capturing both his modest charm and his terrifying willingness to hurt and deceive people.

Start streaming: May 6

Based on a young adult novel by Sarah Dessen, “Along for the Ride” follows a socially awkward high school graduate named Auden (Emma Pasarow) who spends the summer before college living with her father and stepmother in the beach. There she meets a mysterious and brooding boy, Eli (Belmont Cameli), who like her suffers from insomnia and shares her interests in reading and wandering along the shore. Writer-director Sofia Alvarez works this teen romance plot into a larger story about Auden’s efforts to escape the shadow of her overbearing mother (Andie MacDowell) and learn to take more risks.

Start streaming: May 13

Alongside Detective Harry Bosch, defense attorney Mickey Haller is crime novelist Michael Connelly’s greatest creation: a champion of the innocent who empathizes with his clients in part because he himself is often only to a few bad breaks from calamity. Matthew McConaughey played Haller in a well-received 2011 film, “The Lincoln Lawyer,” based on Connelly’s first book about the character. Season 1 of this new TV series is based on the novel “The Brass Verdict,” and it veers a little closer to the source material — starting with casting Mexican actor Manuel Garcia-Rulfo to play a man who is described as half-Mexican in the original stories. In this first series of episodes, the lawyer inherits the practice of a colleague. While mostly working from his flashy car, Haller must prepare a murder defense for a new celebrity client in less than a week.

Start streaming: May 13

Rebel Wilson stars in this high school comedy, which, like her 2019 film “Isn’t It Romantic?”, reuses the conventions of a popular film genre. In “Senior Year,” Wilson plays Stephanie Conway, who has been in a coma since 2002, when she was captain of her school’s cheerleading squad. In her mind, time hasn’t passed, so Stephanie decides to re-enroll and graduate – though she quickly discovers that because so much has changed about teenage cliques and the pop culture over the past 20 years, it is now more maladjusted than adolescence. queen. Directed by TV sitcom veteran Alex Hardcastle, “Senior Year” is a fish out of water story about a woman coming to terms with her past and her future.

When we last left the crew of “Stranger Things,” adventurers Hawkins, Ind., teenagers and their perpetually worried parents and guardians had survived a huge escalation in the interdimensional war against their small town. Season 3 of this nostalgia-tinged sci-fi adventure ended with several characters leaving town after the Soviet Union exacerbated a crisis involving the alternate reality known as “Upside Down.” Pandemic-delayed Season 4 – arriving three years after Season 3 but advancing the plot only six months – will enter the second half of the 1980s. Episodes in this season will be longer and on a larger scale (they will be also split into two parts, the second landing on July 1) as series creators Matt and Ross Duffer begin to piece together the scattered pieces of their story in preparation for a big Season 5 ending.

JEDDAH: For the first time in two years, the sights and sounds of Ramadan offer foreign tourists a glimpse of the Kingdom’s rich culture, a fitting prelude to an expected influx of travelers seeking to experience the country’s growing array of attractions. country.

To support the cultural tourism sector, a tourist visa was launched in September 2019 for citizens of over 50 countries. However, the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in early 2020 brought all international travel to a halt.

This Ramadan has now become an opportunity to welcome travelers using the tourist visa. Although the holy month sees businesses operating at reduced or modified hours, the Kingdom has organized several events allowing foreign tourists to experience Muslim and Saudi culture.

Arab News recently interviewed Abdullah Asiri, a tour guide in Jeddah’s historic Old Quarter, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, who had taken Spanish tourists through the alleyways of Al-Balad.

“Saudi Arabia is very rich in historical and natural attractions and unique adventures. The ease of traveling from one domestic airport to another is impressive, (so) tourists can visit more than one region while they are in the Kingdom,” Asiri said.

Saudi Arabia is very rich in historical and natural attractions and unique adventures. The ease of traveling from one domestic airport to another is impressive, (so) tourists can visit more than one region while in the Kingdom.

Abdullah AsiriTouristic guide

There are several sites across the country open to tourists, including Diriyah in Riyadh and Rijal Alma in Asir. Tourists can also visit the deserts of Neom, the fishing grounds in Jazan, the mountains of Abha and the ancient city of AlUla in Medina.

The concept of cultural tourism relies heavily on the mobility of people. It allows them to connect with people and their stories, eat local food, and experience various types of art, including dance.

Asiri, who is also a flight attendant with Saudi Airlines, said he decided to work as a tour guide because his travels around the world made him realize how passionate some people are about experiencing new cultures. .

HIGHLIGHT

Talking about cultural tourism during the holy month, Abdullah Asiri explained that Ramadan nights, Al-Balad attractions and iftar and sahoor festive meals which include a range of traditional Saudi dishes are worth according to foreign tourists.

He said there had been a large influx of tourists to Al-Balad following the Kingdom’s lifting of its travel ban and making it easier to obtain visas.

“Many tourists I met after (the ban was lifted) told me how excited they were to visit many sites in the Kingdom that we locals would never think of (doing).

Speaking of cultural tourism during the holy month, Asiri said Ramadan nights, Al-Balad attractions and iftar and sahoor festive meals that include a range of traditional Saudi dishes are “worth it” according to tourists. strangers.

“One of the group members expressed how worried she was about visiting the Kingdom during Ramadan since most activities start at night. However, once she saw the amazing Ramadan nights, tents and local food stalls, she changed her mind and was in awe of everything she experienced and explored on the night tour” , did he declare.

Asiri advises foreign tourists to enjoy the sunset over the Jeddah Corniche and visit museums in the afternoon so that they can enjoy Al-Balad in the evening after 8 p.m.

Another interesting place to visit is AlUla, billed as one of the largest open museums in the world, with a 200,000 year history of human habitation. It has now become a crossroads of culture, art and heritage, in addition to daytime outdoor activities for health and wellness enthusiasts, from April 2 to May 7.

The official AlUla Festivals & Events account @AlUlaMoments tweeted on April 20:

“Whether fasting or relaxing this #RamadanInAlUla, discover the breathtaking #UNESCO site of #Hegra. Venture out on a bike or cruise in a vintage Land Rover; Check out the craft pavilion and explore this heritage site at your own pace.”

Tourists can celebrate the holy month among the ancient landscapes and natural beauties of the city, and enjoy iftar and sahoor at AlUla’s new restaurants.

Earlier this month, the Saudi Council of Ministers agreed to launch chapters of the Tourism Development Council in all regions, which seeks to coordinate the actions of government agencies.

The objective of the tourism council is to achieve the objectives of the national tourism strategy, develop destinations, modernize hospitality facilities and attract investment.
