Alleged to be the world's largest airport- takes up half the desert space just to achieve this for no reason but to be a record breaker in a country where tourism is forbidden! - a traveller
When they built this large new airport, one would have thought that the bathrooms would be nicer than Dhahran's bathrooms (not even as nice as an outhouse!) Instead you have this beautiful airport with tons of space, few gates being used, and every bathroom is filthy. All I can say is GO before you head to the airport because you'll not want to do it there!
