Here's What The World Thinks About Saudi Arabia’s Surprising New Beach Resort

By Biya Haq | 5 Aug, 2017

Saudi Arabia isn’t a country that brings us a lot of news, entertaining or otherwise. It is a pretty closely guarde kingdom, mostly just religiously relatable for many people. But apparently, they’ve just done something very strange. Among all the ups and downs of our own country recently, it’s been hard to pay attention to anything else happening in the world but this Saudi story is worth a read.


Recently, a very strange news broke that has made everyone a little confused



Lolsy, while all of us are sitting here in 2017, Saudi just bumped itself from the 1600’s to 3022.


Well, more like 2000 but you get what we mean. The resort will have special laws that will allow women to wear bikinis on the premises.

I mean let’s not kid ourselves (or our society), Saudi opening up a new resort with international standards is a big step. Known for having very traditional and conservative values, it seems things are going pretty much from 0 to 100 – realllll quick.

Some people welcomed the idea, saying it was a slap in the face of Islamophobes


While many took this news with a grain of salt


Some, not even finding it believable


There were certainly some jokes thrown around


And even some conspiracy theories

We love and thrive on those in our part of the world, don’t we?


But others had questions because apparently there still isn’t an official statement from the Kingdom’s officials


Some people even rejected it, outright because of a lack of any official statements


And this guy raised other concerns


Do you think this resort is really going to happen? Are you trying to move to Saudi? Are you shamefully shameless? Let us know in the comments below. Love you.
