Don't forget that staying in just one place will only ever provide you with a narrow window into the broader natural and cultural makeup of a region. So try to set aside some time to discover Central Saudi Arabia's many attractions. Unaizah, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the west, and Ar Rass, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northeast of Bukayriah are also worth visiting should you have the time.
The area around Bukayriah is well known for its many historic palaces; these are fascinating portals into the area's rich history.
An enjoyable way to discover the true personality of a place is by visiting the cafés and restaurants in the area. Try some food and get to know people who live in the area. Marqouq (meat on bread) and jereesh (wheat soup) are popular with both vacationers and residents alike.
Much of Central Saudi Arabia celebrates Unification of the Kingdom on the 23rd of September, so be prepared for changes to opening hours and transport schedules.
