Saudi Arabia is usually believed to be a country with conservative atmosphere and lack of entertaining facilities, but if you are an enthusiast and want to explore the country, you can find so many places for entertainment.

If you visit Jubail but miss the Ferry Ride, your trip will surely be left incomplete. When you go to Fanateer beach, you will find yachts surfing on the beach and few boats harboring on the bank. Riding in a ferry at Jubail beach is one of the best experience I have ever had so far. It brings you very close to the nature and gives you peace of mind and immense pleasure.
Last month we decided to visit Jubail, a tour that was long due!!! In order to plan things earlier, we made our booking in advance online with booking.com for Mergab Tower Hotel Apartments. They have deals online. This hotel is located in middle of the city which is only 20 minutes drive to the Fanateer beach. It is not very discomforting as the hotels available near Fanateer are quite expensive, so why spend 1000 SAR or more when in few minutes you can reach the beach plus admire the city of beautiful scenery. If you are in shopping mood, you can go to the Al Jubail Mall that is located right next to the hotel.
