Complete with 11 sub-zones, Boulevard World is located adjacent to Boulevard Riyadh City. Each sub-zone is dedicated to a different country from across the globe, celebrating the best of that destination’s shopping, culinary and cultural experiences. It’s all set out around the largest man-made lake in the world, which visitors can enjoy with gondola, car and even floating submarine rides.
