Tourists – Take Photos in Saudi Arabia

Saudi guyExciting news for the snap-happy tourists that find themselves very down in the dumps when they’re restricted from taking photos in places like museums or of the native people – Saudi Arabia has lifted a ban on photography to help increase tourism. I find it odd that a ban on photography would have that much of an impact on tourism to begin with, but I guess the interior ministry thinks it does. Anyhow, permission is still needed to take photos of private property and locals. You should always ask permission when taking a picture of someone in any place and as a word of advice be careful taking pictures of the Saudi women. They’re still pretty sensitive about that sort of thing.
