From Beach Blanket Burqa to Itsy bitsy teenie weenie Saudi-approved bikini?

When people think of ‘sexy beach vacation,’ Saudi Arabia doesn’t normally come to mind.

However Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the deputy prime minister of Saudi Arabia, wants that to change. In a bid to get more tourist dollars flowing into the kingdom, the 31-year-old prince has proposed plans for a luxury resort on the Red Sea.

  • How about a trip to Saudi?

    You get to play jihadi roulette.

    Some of the Saudi leaders at least appear to be trying to prepare their kingdom for the day when the oil runs out; and tourism seems a logical avenue to explore. Without islam getting in the way, their dry and very hot desert nation would have a number of good locations for possibly generating tourist income. But islam will always get in the way, unfortunately.

    • Ultimately it will be their downfall.

        Some tourist will go but only once, couples and single woman will never go back because women are completely ignored in hotels when it comes to service, and single man will not return because there is no action or the action is to expensive/dangerous.

      Indeed there are miles and miles of spectacular coral reefs there that nobody dives on…because they’re in Soddy Barbaria. Prince Salman’s enticements notwithstanding, I won’t be the first.

      • As a scuba diver and an infidel whore, I have a hard time imagining a diving vacation in Saudi.

    If you go you are a MORON and deserve all that befalls you.

    Oh, first they want tourists, then fast forward 50 years and tourists are no longer welcome.
    Tourists, bleechhh

    There will come a time, although I can’t say when, when the Saudis conclude that the Wahhabi establishment poses more of a threat to their rule than a bulwark against their enemies.

    Just where I want to vacation – no booze and every guest gets a complimentary bullet proof vest.
