  1. 1. Saudi Arabia Claudia Fernanda Hernández Boyso A01064865 José Alberto Chávez Gaytán A01065062
  2. 2. Location  Saudi Arabia or Kingdom of Saudi Arabia occupies most of the Arabian Peninsula.  Separated from Africa by the Red Sea, bordered to the north by Jordan, Iraq and Kuwait, on the east by the Persian Gulf, Qatar, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates, Oman to the south and the Republic of Yemen and to the west by the Red Sea.
  3. 3.  Three quarters are covered by deserts An Nafud, north, Ad Dahna, in the center, and Rub 'Al Khali, the driest in the world, to the south.  The capital is Riyadh.  They spoke Arabic and his demonym can be Saudi Arabian or Saudi.
  4. 4. Places you must visit 1. Riyadh  This capital is a modern city that receives thousands of daily business men.  Ibn Saud Museum testifies to the ancestors of the reigning dynasty. The Museum of RIAD is more complete and recounts the history of the country and the region since the Neolithic. The Camel Market, 30 km from the city, is the most important as camel market in the world, is lively, colorful, takes place every day and during the April races are held which are followed throughout the Arab world.
  5. 5. 2. Jeddah  A port for no rest.  Provides the ability to perform many activities of both adventure tourism such as ecotourism or cultural tourism ... pristine beaches, crystal clear warm waters of the Red Sea.  Despite its modernity, this city, like many others in the region has preserved its cultural heritage and we can see on our walk through the historic homes built with coral in the eighteenth century.
  6. 6. 3. Mecca  Forbidden City for those who do not profess the Muslim faith.  This city that gave birth to the prophet Muhammad keeps relics of unsuspected value for the history of the humanity.  It is the largest religious pilgrimage center in the world, is part of the "Five Pillars of Islam”
  7. 7. 4. Medinah  Also this city is sacred and not allowed entry to those who profess the Muslim faith.  In the vicinity of this sacred city also found Umm Cave Garsan a priceless historical and archaeological value  Here have been engraved, stuffed animals, utensils and human remains dating, in principle, more than 8,000 years old. It is the largest, its size, of the Arabian peninsula.
  8. 8. 5. Jubbah  In this city, in the north of the country, there are places of historical, archaeological and anthropological little visited.  There are paintings of more than 5,000 years old.  The Mosque of Omar, is one of the oldest in the world and close to the tombs of the Nabataeans.
  9. 9. Things banned in Saudi Arabia  In Saudi Arabia there are no specific statutes or laws to govern by. The sole constitution that is used is the Quran, which all judges have to interpret conservatively. Many actions that are considered illegal have no actual written laws to ban them – a lot of them are not even addressed in the Quran.  The general rule in regards to the legality of something is that if it is suspected to be “haram” (forbidden or clashing with Islamic law or may lead people astray from Islam) then suspicion alone is grounds for banning it.
  10. 10. Happy Valentine’s  Banned: Selling or wearing anything red on Valentine’s Day.  The penalty for violating that rule would lead to the store being shut down.  Also on that day, schoolgirls are prohibited from wearing anything red – not even a red scarf.
  11. 11. Social mixing  Banned: The mixing of sexes at malls and restaurants.  In many malls in Saudi, only “families” are allowed. And by families, they mean either women visiting a mall by themselves, or men who are accompanied by women.  For restaurants, there are typically two sections: one for families and one for singles.
  12. 12. Movies  Banned: Movie theaters  Movie theaters are prohibited and they are only located within private company compounds, such as theaters at Saudi Aramco residential camps.
  13. 13. Bacon  Banned: Pork  Since Saudi Arabia operates under Islamic law, all food entering the country must be “halal”.
  14. 14. Music school  Banned: Music classes in public schools  Music is legal in Saudi Arabia and there is an active music industry.  However, there are no formal schools to teach music. The general attitude for many religious people is that music is forbidden; malls and stores do not have music playing through speakers in order not to offend religious customers.
  15. 15. Gyms for girls  Banned: Gyms and sports for women  For a while, private gyms for women were allowed to operate until the Religious Police decided to close them down for good.
  16. 16. Every other god  Banned: Other religions  It is against the law for non-Muslims to worship in public in Saudi Arabia and there are no houses of worship to cater to non-Muslims.  The main reason, yet again, is because the two holy mosques are located in the country and that is would be blasphemous for churches or other places of worship to exist there.
  17. 17. Women at work  Banned: Women working in certain jobs  Women are not allowed to do most of the jobs that men can do in Saudi Arabia.  Industry-wise, the sole company that employs female engineers is Saudi Aramco, the largest oil company in the world.  Other companies would not be allowed to hire women as engineers. Most women work in either education or the medical field.  Women have only recently been allowed to work as store clerks or at department stores.
  18. 18. Roaming women  Banned: Women traveling without permission  Over in Saudi Arabia, women cannot travel alone without a specific form or an electronic authorization. This ban is only lifted when a woman turns 45.  Women under 45 must either travel with a husband or father or else hold a permission form signed by a male guardian.
  19. 19. Woman behind the wheel  Banned: Women driving  This is the most notorious ban involving Saudi women.  Women have never been allowed to drive unless they drive in the desert or inside private compounds.
  20. 20. Homosexuality  Banned: Having a relationship with a person of the same sex.  The penal code is not written formally, and penalties are based on the opinions of judges and clerics  All sex than made ​within the traditional heterosexual marriage (adultery, fornication, etc..) Is a crime, and some of these crimes are punishable by the death penalty.
  21. 21. Alcohol  Banned: Alcohol consumption is prohibited.  Prohibits their use, production and import.  Violating the law implies severe punishments that include weeks or months in jail and having to get lashes.
