Riyadh Avenue Mall: Lulu and More…
To tell the truth, I didn’t even know that the name of this mall was Riyadh Avenue Mall. All I knew was that my dad called this place Lulu Hypermarket. Why, you ask? That is because the single biggest thing in this mall is Lulu Hypermarket, a sort of a Tesco in a mall. As a matter of fact, at the side of mall, there is a large neon sign saying Lulu Hypermarket. I don’t have images of that now but maybe later.
Going inside Riyadh Avenue Mall, there is a fountain waiting for visitors. It’s a small fountain but for such a small mall, it was impressive. Another mall, Riyadh Gallery even has a small river in it but that is for another post.
And as soon as you pass the fountain, there is a couple of shops that sell clothes and food and even a Krispy Kreme in it but right after that, there is Lulu Hypermarket. Other than that, there is nothing much in Riyadh Avenue Mall. But if I were to write a post about Riyadh Gallery, then that would be a whole nother matter.
Regardless, I will still show images of the Lulu Hypermarket because this is something that people in South Asian countries populated by Muslims could not imagine. Not because they’re backwards or anything but because most Muslims in Asian countries see Saudi from the two holy cities: Mecca and Medina. And in those cities, there is modernity but not as much as Riyadh. So, look at these images and behold the modern Saudi.
