KNews.id- Saudi Arabia will reportedly allow the circulation of alcoholic beverages. The country where the two holiest Muslim cities, Mecca and Medina, will serve wine, cocktails, and champagne.
This will be true in the country’s new megafuturistic city. This is related to the opening of a beach resort in Neom next year. The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported this for the first time last weekend. The US media looked at the city development documents, dated January.
“Located on a Red Sea island called Sindalah, the Neom resort hopes to offer a premium wine bar, a separate cocktail bar and a bar for champagne and desserts,” the WSJ wrote.
“The plan also calls for retail wine shops with striking vertical wall displays,” the US media added.
Not only alcohol, the image of the development of Sindalah dated June also includes pictures of women in bikinis and topless men. They were made to relax on the yacht and bathe in the infinity pool.
“Sindalah will ‘light up’ the Red Sea as a new destination for super yachts and attract some of the world’s most wealthy and influential people,” the planning document said.
However, Neom’s representatives have not confirmed this. This is also done by the government of King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud. (AHM)
