Kartan visar läget för fyra nya viktiga städer och deras planerade storlek.
Den största staden kommer att vara King Abdullah Economic City. Nedan en annan vy över staden.
Redan har en del hus kommit upp längs strandpromenaden.
Det ska inte bara bli en flott stad utan en viktig hamn ska också byggas. Man hoppas kunna serva en del av trafiken genom Suezkanalen och Röda Havet och därigenom få mer inkomster. Hoppas de bara kan lära sina medborgare att jobba lite mer.

En anna källa http://www.sptimes.com/2002/webspecials02/saudiarabia/day4/story1.shtml säger: "For one thing, there is a strong perception that Saudis are lazy. A recent study of Saudis in office jobs found that 21 percent made zero contribution to the work place. Many failed to stay in the office more than two hours a day.
Even Saudi newspapers are critical. Writing in the Saudi Gazette, a columnist noted that while he was glad to see young Saudis manning checkout counters at his local supermarket, he couldn't help but observe that they were surly and slow while the foreign clerks were friendly and fast."
Det finns alltså en del att göra i landet. Utan all importerad arbetskraft faller landet ihop.
